Kevin Spacey will reprise his role as President Frank Underwood in “House of Cards” Season 5. Netflix

As if “House of Cards” fans aren’t excited enough for Season 5, Kevin Spacey had to fan the flames further by saying that the upcoming season is “one of the best” they have ever done.

“This year, in particular, there’s been a lot of commentary about how we can't compete in the real world, so it’s not going to be as interesting and the show can’t possibly be as crazy as the real world. And my answer to that is, just you wait. Just you wait,” he told Bloomberg.

As crazy as the show might be, what with Spacey’s character President Frank Underwood’s devious manipulations and constant betrayal, the actor is encouraging viewers to get involved in politics. “It’s really worthwhile, it's really worth doing,” he said. “Whether that's stuffing envelopes for something you believe in or finding out what your community center needs.”

Meanwhile, Spacey’s co-stars Michael Kelly and Neve Campbell, who play Doug Stamper and Leann Harvey, respectively, admitted that “House of Cards” is actually pretty tame compared to what’s happening with the Donald Trump administration. “The madness that’s happening with this current administration… people are going to watch ‘House of Cards’ and go, ‘that's not so crazy,’” he told CNN Entertainment.

“This is insane, what's happening in the real world,” he continued. “This is crazy town right now. It’s disturbing. We’ve always been a country, except for in television, that has someone who can represent the American people with knowledge and respect and proper decorum. This is the first time that we’ve not had that and that’s incredibly troubling.”

Campbell, on the other hand, added that they felt a certain responsibility with real-life politics after doing the show. “I think we are all feeling, 'Oh, I can’t checkout now.’Checking out is not the appropriate reaction.”

However, Spacey clarified with The Hollywood Reporter that the similarities between the show and real life are all coincidental, and they never planned on shaping Underwood the same as Trump. “That was never our intention to play into the real world of politics. We wanted to be an alternative universe,” he said. But in a time of “alternative facts,” he agreed that it’s difficult to separate the two.

In the brand new trailer for “House of Cards” Season 5, Frank can be heard talking to his wife Claire (Robin Wright) while several scenes play out simultaneously. “The American people don’t know what’s best for them,“ he tells her. ”I do. I know exactly what they need.”

“They’re like little children, Claire,” Frank continues in his spiel. “We have to hold their sticky fingers and wipe their filthy mouths. Teach them right from wrong. Tell what to think and how to feel and what to want. They even need help writing their wildest dreams. Crafting their worst fears. Lucky for them, they have me. They have you.”

It seemed like Frank is planning to lead America not just today, but in the years to come as he promises to hold office for six terms. “Underwood, 2016. 2020. 2024. 2028. 2032. 2036. One nation, Underwood,” he says.

"House of Cards" Season 5 premieres May 30 on Netflix.
