Stop the presses! President Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) has an announcement to make. And hopefully it will have something to do with the Season 4 premiere date of our favorite Netflix political drama “House of Cards.”
Tuesday morning, the official Twitter account for “House of Cards” posted a curious tweet -- one that revealed President Underwood would be making a “special” statement during Tuesday's GOP debate. The fifth Republican presidential debate will begin airing on CNN at 8:30 p.m. EST.

That means candidates like Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush might have to take a break from the debate so that everyone’s favorite fictional Commander-in-Chief can make his anticipation declaration (and fingers crossed Underwood will be revealing just when Beau Willimon’s Emmy Award-winning series will return to the small screen).
This wouldn’t be the first time that Netflix unveiled the premiere date of “House of Cards” through a message from the fictional president. On Dec. 1, 2014, Twitter users received a “special message from the White House,” which revealed that the third season of the political drama would be streamed to Netflix on Feb. 27, 2015.
And considering were 15 days into December, it seems safe to assume that it’ll only be a matter of time before audiences are alerted when Frank, Claire (Robin Wright) and the rest of the gang will make their way back to Washington D.C.
But like Frank has previously stated, we don’t want to assume … we want to know!
We advise that “House of Cards” fans keep on eye on the show’s official Twitter handle because chances are, Frank’s important announcement will be posted to the account, as well as many others. He is the president, after all.
