It’s hard to keep track whether House of Cards is political escapism or a documentary at this point, but Season 5 looks nonetheless like the darkest year yet. See for yourself in a chilling new teaser, as First Lady Underwood urges America to keep close watch on itself.

Following the prior trailer, a new campaign ad for House of Cards Season 5 sees Robin Wright’s Claire directly addressing the American people; asking them to report on one another and ignore the media for the administration nation’s benefit. As the closing moments of Season 4 made clear, Frank and Claire intend to “make the terror” to keep their grip on power, and Claire is certainly off to a good start.

Thus far, relatively few details of House of Cards Season 5 are known, other than the announced departure of showrunner Beau Willimon, who will be succeeded by writers Frank Pugliese and Melissa James Gibson. New guest stars will include Oscar-nominee Patricia Clarkson and Campbell Scott, while Joel Kinnaman, Neve Campbell and Lars Mikkelsen will all reprise their roles.

House of Cards Season 5 will debut on Tuesday, May 30, so watch the first trailer below and stay tuned in the meantime.
