Kevin Spacey Promises Scariest House Of Cards Season Ever

In terms of real-world analogies, not werewolves and stuff

House of Cards returns for a highly anticipated fifth season on Netflix tomorrow (May 30), and Kevin Spacey has promised it will be the 'scariest' run yet.

No, the show hasn't jumped the shark and turned into a slasher, but the parallels between the events of the show and the real-world political climate will send chills down your spine.

Speaking to Late Night's Seth Meyers, the Frank Underwood actor said: "There are people who watch the show, as an example, last year and thought, 'Oh that's crazy. That could never happen'.

"And then suddenly 18 months later it's like, 'Oh, wait a second. That actually could happen'. Or it is happening. I think that we're scarier than we've ever been before."

What Spacey finds even scarier is that the show isn't following or reflecting certain political events, it predicted them.

"At some point between when we shot the season and before it dropped," he said on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, "three or four or five things that we have dealt with happened in the real world, and we go, 'OK, everyone's going to assume we stole it from the headlines', but in fact, we did it first."

Spacey's co-star Robin Wright recently joked that House of Cards had now run out of ideas for season six because President Trump had stolen them all.
