All 13 episodes of the series will be available to stream starting on Valentine's Day, a Friday, ensuring that single people everywhere will have viable weekend plans.
After all, what better way to protest a holiday that celebrates love than binge-watching a show about corrupt politicians, cheating spouses and ethically dubious reporters?
In the season ahead, according to a Netflix press release, Machiavellian D.C. couple Francis and Claire Underwood (Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright) will "continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts."
Those threats include reporter Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara) and her colleague, Lucas (Sebastian Arcelus), who at the close of Season 1 were hot on the trail of the Underwoods' various misdeeds.
In Season 2, newly appointed Vice President Francis will also continue to lock horns with the president's billionaire pal, Raymond Tusk played by Gerald McRaney.
