The first trailer of “House of Cards” Season 3 premiered moments after Kevin Spacey received the Golden Globe for Lead Actor in a Televised Drama Series on Sunday. The Netflix series' new season is scheduled to begin Feb. 27.
The trailer opens showing Francis Underwood and his wife, Claire, played by Robin Wright, in their new position as the president and first lady.
"You want to know what takes real courage? Holding it all together when the stakes are this high," Francis says. The 45-second video ends with Claire telling Francis, "We are murderers," to which he adds: "We are survivors." The trailer also hints at tensions between Francis and Claire.
"I can tell you exclusively that there will be scenes and dialogue, movement, surprises -- some of it taking place in the White House -- some of it taking place somewhere else. There are shocks surprises, holes and turns. Yes, you got it from me here,” Spacey told reporters backstage about the upcoming season, after his win at the Golden Globes.
The 55-year-old actor has been nominated for the Golden Globes eight times, including two nominations for his role in “House of Cards,” and this was his first win.
“This is just the beginning of my revenge,” Spacey said in his acceptance speech, in reference to his character.
“I want to thanks Netflix for their incredible support of this series,” he said. “I have an extraordinary time coming to work every day.”
