For Robin Wright, longtime star of Netflix’s House of Cards remake, the show’s sixth and final season is #MyTurn.
A tweet announcing the Nov. 2 premiere date â timely, just a few short days before Election Day â also features a grim, new poster and a wholly appropriate hashtag: #MyTurn. In Season 6, Wright steps into the show’s lead role â and the Oval Office â after her disgraced former co-star Kevin Spacey was ousted from the series.
The poster shows us Wright sitting in a classical chair resembling the one from the Abraham Lincoln statue at Washington, D.C.’s Lincoln Memorial. Blood drips from her right hand, beckoning back to a moment from the end of Season 5 that is sure to have repercussions moving forward.
The hashtag holds a double meaning. It is indeed Claire Underwood’s turn to run the country, with Spacey’s Frank Underwood having resigned his post. But the comment is also the last one Wright makes in Season 5, a pivotal moment in which she turns to the camera and breaks the fourth wall, much like Spacey frequently did when his character was the show’s focus.
The last dance for Netflix’s House of Cards begins (and ends, with all episodes premiering at once) on Nov. 2.
