Since the unsightly removal of Kevin Spacey following allegations of sexual harassment, Netflix has confirmed that Robin Wright would be returning solo to the White House this year as Commander in Chief.
Fortunately, the fierce Claire Underwood already had her talon's dug deep into the shiny mahogany wood of the Oval Office desk by the end of season five, having outmanoeuvred her scheming husband and toppled him off the Presidential top spot.
With so much real-life drama having taken place between the end of season five and the return of season six, many eyes will be watching to see how House of Cards gets on with woman at the helm, and how the show will explain away the absence of their previous President.
It's been a long wait, but finally we have our first look at House of Cards season six. Early release images show Robin Wright centre stage.
An early trailer released by Netflix shows the camera panning through the White House (is that a portrait of President Frank Underwood that hangs in the background?), sweeping through corridors until we meet the perfectly polished Madam President, who turns in her chair and addresses the camera (a Machiavellian stylistic devise that has become synonymous with House of Cards): 'We're just getting started'.
Damn Wright.... We've waited too long. Read our review of season five here.
