We’ve been waiting all year for new episodes of House of Cards, and the day is finally here. Valentines Day marks the day when you’re supposed to make your loved one feel special, but men and women everywhere will be working their day around viewing the new season of House of Cards.
If you want to get a jump on the rest of the world, you’ll want to start watching episodes as soon as they’re available, but if the clock has struck midnight you may not be seeing the new episodes yet.
Never fear, as the new episodes of the show will be coming, they’ll just be doing so on Pacific time. House of Cards season two will premiere at 3:01am ET on Netflix and not a minute sooner.
If you can’t wait that long and need a teaser, here’s a synopsis of season 2 of House of Cards:
In the second season, Francis (Spacey) and Claire (Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara, “American Horror Story”), an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes. President Walker’s (Michel Gill, “The Good Wife”) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney, “Southland”) demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution. And Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis’s once private existence. The Underwood’s must overcome these dangers — past and present — to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.
All episodes from the first two seasons will be available at 3:01am ET, so be sure to get your viewing in early so your Valentines date doesn’t hate you too much by the end of the night.
