It was an instant Netflix hit when it first landed earlier this year and now there's some very good news for House of Cards fans because the show's return date has been officially confirmed.

It seems as though Kevin Spacey and co will be back in action on Netflix just in time for Valentine's Day, with 13 new episodes available to stream from February 14th 2014. It all sounds rather angsty, and if the teaser trailer Netflix dropped on YouTube is anything to go by it most definitely will be.

In the second season, Francis (Spacey) and Claire (Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. However, Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara), an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes, while President Walker’s billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney) demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution. And Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis’s once private existence. The Underwood’s must overcome these dangers - past and present - to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.

After a sneaky peek at the trailer and the brand new poster (check it out below) we're guessing fans will be counting down the days. Who'd have ever thought Valentine's Day could be so appealing?
