House of Cards Season 5 Major Spoilers Ahead – Stop reading if you don’t want to see Frank Underwood’s (Kevin Spacey) fate for Season 5 of the popular political drama series House of Cards.
Netflix has been secretive about their House of Cards Season 5 plans but there are already speculations on what will happen to Frank Underwood, or another major character, when it returns airing in 2017.
“You lose characters that you love. We almost lost Frank, and I always have faith in the writers that no matter what road we go down, we’re going to come back to what the show is,” Micheal Kelly, who plays Doug Stumper, the Frank Underwood loyalist, stated to deadline.com.
Some seasons ago in House of Cards, Frank Underwood was assassinated and almost died. Kelly referred to that but also referred to something even more deadly for one of the characters in the future, or as early as Season 5.
For the fifth season, there are speculations that a major House of Cards character will lose his life and leave the show. The producers have been mum about any clues on which major protagonist will die but senior writers Melissa James Gibson and Frank Pugliese will be taking over as showrunners starting Season 5. Beau Willimon, who was in charge the first four seasons, have left the show.
It could be Frank Underwood facing death again or with Kelly being emotional in the interview it could be Doug Stumper leaving the show. Claire Underwood is also a good candidate since all the sins of the past four seasons should finally get to her.
House of Cards Season 5 is expected to return by February or March 2017
