The sixth and final season of “House of Cards” will revolve around Wright’s Claire in the Oval Office, having taken over the reins from her husband, Frank.

With her hands planted firmly on the desk, she declared: “We’re just getting started.”

Executive producers for “House of Cards” are Melissa James Gibson, Frank Pugliese, Robin Wright, David Fincher​, Joshua Donen​, Dana Brunetti​, Eric Roth​, Michael Dobbs​ and Andrew Davies​. The series, which was created by Beau Willimon​, hails from studio MRC.

The final season of “House of Cards” will stream on Netflix later this year.
