Many fans are now getting pretty hyped for the return of Netflix's popular political drama series "House of Cards" but sadly, the network has yet to make any official statement regarding its potential release date or even its plot details.

However, there have been some rumors going around the internet which suggest that Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) may run for another term as president next season.

According to reports, "House of Cards" season 4 has somehow hinted that Frank will run for another term, but it seems like the events that will happen in the series might somehow mimic the real world presidential seat race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump at the 2016 presidential elections.

There is also another rumor suggesting that a new character is about to get introduced in "House of Cards" season 5 who is inspired by the Republican President-elect Trump. It is unclear, however, if this allegedly new character will try to take on Frank Underwood in the next election in "House of Cards." 

Meanwhile, Michael Kelly — who plays Doug Stamper in the show — has recently shared some interesting bits of information regarding his character, particularly the big changes that have happened (and will possibly continue to happen) in the show.

"I remember [Beau Willimon] saying to me, "Look, I can have you and Francis twirling your mustaches forever and destroying everything in your wake. People love it. But I want to challenge myself. I want to see what happens when these people fail," he said during an interview with Deadline last August.

"I feel like any big changes that have happened on the show, it's always well-warranted or well-deserved, that the audience will get it. They might have to wait longer than on your typical TV show, but they will bring you back," Kelly continued.

"House of Cards" season 5 will allegedly air on Netflix sometime in February 2017, or even early March next year, as some reports suggest.
