house of cards series 4 teaser

Series four of hit US political drama 'House of Cards' starts on Friday, but here's some news on series five.

Two co-showrunners will take over the drama from series five. They are Melissa James Gibson and Frank Pugliese.

Both have been involved with the story side of the show up to this point.

They replace Beau Willimon, who has overseen the show since it started. In fact, it was his pitch – for a US take on the classic BBC series focussed on the British political establishment – that attracted Netflix and star Kevin Spacey.

Spacey said: "I welcome Frank and Melissa in their new roles on 'House of Cards' and look forward to collaborating with them and our creative team on season five."

Series four will hit Netflix on Friday. Series three ended on a huge cliffhanger, so we'll have to see if Frank Underwood (Spacey) can be re-elected.

According to the show's Michael Kelly (who plays chief of staff and fixer Doug Stamper) and Neve Campbell (who plays Leann Harvey), Donald Trump is worse than Frank Underwood, and much, much scarier.
