The Hollywood Reporter had linked Clarkson and Scott to the political drama in October. Sources said the pair both booked "major roles" and "will be featured heavily" in the new season.

House of Cards is based on the Michael Dobbs novel of the same name, which was previously adapted as a BBC miniseries. The show stars Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright and Michael Kelly.

Senior writers Melissa James Gibson and Frank Pugliese will serve as showrunners for the first time in Season 5. Netflix announced the news in February 2016 following series creator Beau Willimon's departure.

"I welcome Frank and Melissa in their new roles on House of Cards and look forward to collaborating with them and our creative team on Season 5," Spacey said at the time.

The new season of House of Cards will premiere Mar. 30. The show follows politician Frank Underwood (Spacey) as he ruthlessly advances his career in Washington, D.C.
