The upcoming Season 4 of “House of Cards” is set to introduce a new couple who are quite similar to Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) and Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey). There is no information about the actors who have been cast to play the two new characters.

“… ‘House of Cards’ Season 4 will introduce a couple who are the mirror image of Frank and Claire, only younger and (possibly) more British,” according to TV Line.

Netflix original political drama series “House of the Cards,” created by Beau Willimon, is an adaptation of BBC’s miniseries of the same name. The British couple’s entry in the American version may probably mean that the Prime Minister of U.K. and his wife are visiting Washington, D.C., though there is no official confirmation on that.    

Meanwhile, “House of Cards” Season 3 saw tension rising between Claire and Frank, and in the final episode she refused to accompany him to New Hampshire for the Democratic nomination campaign. When Frank said, “yes, you are [going with me to New Hampshire]. I’ll see you in the car,” Claire told him, “I’m leaving you” and walked away. Willimon told The Hollywood Reporter (THR), whether Frank can function without Claire is “one of the big questions going into season four."

The previous season also saw Doug (Michael Kelly) becoming Frank’s chief of staff. THR quoted Kelly as saying that Frank is more efficient with Doug by his side. He also said, “I can only hope that next season it'll bring more of a 'let's get some sh-- done.' "

“House of Cards” Season 4 is set to focus on Presidential elections. Willimon has said that they will not be including real-life political events in the show. The political news may influence them in a “subliminal way” but they will deliberately not incorporate those political stories in the new season of “House of Cards," according to E Online's report.

And writer of “House of Cards” Michael Dobbs has hinted that Season 4 of Netflix series will see more “wickedness.” He told Sunday Express that the audience can expect “much more wickedness, great acting. Great dialogue …”
