Netflix has released a trailer for the third series of 'House of Cards', ushering in a fresh dose of skullduggery and chicanery.

The new series of the political thriller starts on February 27 wherever Netflix is available.

Blimey. Doesn't look like a barrel of laughs.

The end of the clip has the biggest clue of what might happen. It sees Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) say to her husband Francis (Kevin Spacey): "We're murderers Francis." He replies: "We're survivors."

It's pretty intense all round, with plenty of the series' trademark moody lighting and a feverish score. But can Frank and Claire stay on top? Tune in on the 27th to find out.

The series is one of Netflix's own homegrown efforts, and has won plaudits from critics all around the world.

Despite looking thoroughly American in its tone and outlook, it's a remake of a 1990 BBC mini series of the same name, based on the novel by Michael Dobbs.

It also stars Michael Kelly, Kate Mara, Corey Stoll and Michel Gill.

Its sillier equivalent, 'Veep', also returns for a new series on HBO on April 12 in the US.

That's the same night as 'Game of Thrones' series five debuts, though Sky won't simulcast it like last year, so we'll have to wait a day for it to hit UK screens.
