A lot of people are excited for the release of “House of Cards” Season 5, and the cast are keeping the hype alive by praising the show and teasing the “crazy” things their characters have in store.

Michael Kelly, who plays Doug Stamper in the Netflix series, told Salon that this Season 5 will stay true to the show’s trademark political twists and turns. “Like every season of ‘House of Cards,’ there’s going to the Machiavellian and the backstabbing and the high drama and all that is definitely in store for audiences this season,” Kelly said, adding, “I do some crazy [things].”

As for Neve Campbell, who plays political consultant LeAnn Harvey, she teased that her character might follow suit with the evil mechanisms of Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and his wife, Claire (Robin Wright). “I’m not sure necessarily about LeAnn,” Campbell said. “I think she wasn’t really into politics on her own. She wasn’t even in Washington at the beginning of her character last season. She said, ‘I don’t want to get between the president and the first lady. I’ve been invited to D.C. I don’t need to be in D.C. I’m powerful in my own right.’ I think she gets to Washington and she gets the itch. I think she sees that power and feels what it is to be in the White House and starts to have that drive,” she said.

Season 5 will be the first “House of Cards” installment without showrunner Beau Willimon. He was replaced by Frank Pugliese and Melissa James Gibson, who joined the series as senior writers in Season 3.

Campbell said they all felt the loss of Willimon deeply, but they are happy with the work Pugliese and Gibson did. “It felt different in the sense that we love Beau. He became a dear friend to all of us. And it’s a family on the show. So in that way it's challenging, and the man’s a genius,” she said, according to Cinema Blend.

“House of Cards” Season 5 premieres May 30 on Netflix.
