Many Doubt New President Claire Underwood in ‘House of Cards’ Final Season Trailer

Season 6 of “House of Cards” will see Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) taking over the duty as the president of the U.S. after her husband Frank Underwood resigned. However, things won’t go smoothly as the media question her ability to lead the country, according to the new trailer of the upcoming sixth and final season of the Netflix series.

“They are trying to strip me of my constitutional power as your Commander in Chief,” she says in a public speech,” Claire says in a public speech.

Claire seemingly isn’t trying to simply follow in her late husband’s footsteps as she is seen cutting ties with Frank’s former right-hand man Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly). “I’m not going to be told what to do anymore, Doug,” she tells him. “Not by you or any man, ever again.”

Despite the backlash from the public, the new president also vows not to keep her mouth shut. “The first female president of the United States is not going to keep her mouth shut,” she declares.

The trailer also reveals that Frank used to have an affair with Annette Shepherd (Diane Lane), the sister of Greg Kinnear‘s Bill Shepherd from massive industrial corporation named Shepherd Unlimited. “You know I slept with him once, your husband,” Annette tells Claire.

Wright will lead the 8-part season 6 following the exit of Kevin Spacey, who was fired over sexual misconduct allegations. Production on the sixth season was halted last year following multiple misconduct allegation against the actor, which later led to him being fired from the series.

Also starring in the new season are Jayne Atkinson, Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer, Derek Cecil and Campbell Scott. Season 6 of “House of Cards” is slated to premiere on November 2 on Netflix.
