We are not clear if there is going to season 7 or not. The producers have shared that season 6 was the last. However, as many talks are going about season 7 we may hope for it. But there is no news at the present.
The plotline of House of Cards
The House of Cards plot is from a novel written by Michael Dobbs in 1989. The drama is set in Washington, D.C. The story follows a Congressman Frank Underwood who is a Democrat from South Carolina and his wife Claire Underwood who is an ambitious woman. As Frank misses the post of Secretary of State he makes plans to get power.
Moreover, Claire also wants her husband to be in a powerful post so she assists him in his ambitions. The series delves on the aspects like manipulation, betrayal and pragmatism which the people in the show use to attain power.
In the following seasons, the character of Frank gets killed off because of the sexual misconduct case against Kevin Spacey. The storyline continued without him in season 5 and 6. In these seasons we saw how Frank’s wife Claire’s plans get disrupted because of the sudden death of her husband. Many investigations also happen because of Frank’s crimes.
Claire also gets influenced by rich families that have a major influence in politics for their selfish agendas. At the end of the series, Claire kills Doug and sees the audience to say “no more pain”.
What may happen in season 7?
In season 7 we may get to see the schemes and machinations of Claire. As she has her own political ambitions she may try to enter the political scene again after her husband’s death. She blames all the wrongs on her husband so she can escape the authorities. She acts as an innocent and lonely female but really she is more cold-hearted and manipulative than her husband.

Greg Kinnear will play as Bill Shepherd millionaire playing games in politics.
