With the last batch of Netflix April content showing up this week, it’s only appropriate that Sony announced the House of Cards Season 2 Blu-ray release date. On June 17, House of Cards: The Complete Second Season will see a street date on both the Blu-ray and DVD format. All 13 episodes will be available on the four-disc Blu-ray and four-disc DVD sets. Pre-orders are hit-and-miss on Amazon; you should check this link periodically and place your pre-order ASAP, as they may disappear again.
The House of Cards Season 2 Blu-ray and DVD box sets have collectible packaging and five bonus featurettes in addition to the 13 episodes. Two Houses explores the differences between the classic ‘90s British mini-series, as well as the history of how this project came together.
Table Read gives a behind-the-scenes look at table reads cut together with the actual scenes from the show, demonstrating how the scene changes from script to screen. Direct Address focuses on the way Francis talks directly to viewers, breaking the 4th wall, and the differences between how it’s done in the original show versus how it is used in this series.
The last two featurettes are Politics for Politics Sake, which explores the universal themes of the show, including relationships and power, not just politics; and Line of Succession, in which fans can get a closer look at the creative process that goes into producing an episode.
In House of Cards Season 2, two-time Academy Award-winner Kevin Spacey returns as the newly appointed Vice President of the United States, along with Robin Wright, this year’s Golden Globe winner for her role as his wife, Claire Underwood. In Season 2, the series continues to sizzle as the ruthless Underwoods stop at nothing to climb the political food chain.
