Netflix Drops Dramatic 'House of Cards' Trailer: It's President Claire Underwood v The World After Kevin Spacey's Departure

Frank Underwood’s wife and successor has no shortage of enemies ready to stab her in the back as she becomes first female president of the United States.

The first full trailer for Netflix’s "House of Cards" is setting up the final season to be the most dramatic yet as Frank Underwood’s wife, Claire, assumes the presidency after his death.

That’s no spoiler, either. It was revealed weeks ago that Kevin Spacey’s character would be killed off after he was fired from Netflix following the outpouring of sexual harassment, misconduct and assault allegations against him last year. "I’ll tell you this though, Francis," Robin Wright’s character says while speaking to her husband’s grave. "When they bury me, it won’t be in my backyard. And when they pay their respects, they’ll have to wait in line."

Well, she may have spoken too soon. The new 2-minute trailer that dropped Monday shows President Underwood coming under fire from the media, the American oligarchy, the president of Russia and even Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly) — who clearly has turned against Claire in wake of the death of his former boss.

"I’m not going to be told what to do anymore, Doug," the first female POTUS tells her husband’s chief of staff. "Not by you, or any man."

"Who do you fear most?" Russian president Viktor Petrov asks Stamper. His response? "Her."

The trailer is light on any details about how Frank Underwood meets his maker, but heavy on talk about death and two new additions: Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear.

They play a wealthy couple who seem to be advising Claire Underwood as she assumes the presidency, but they don’t seem to be friendly.

"House of Cards" returns for its final season on Nov. 2.
