Unfortunately, House of Cars appears to be stuck in a boring, drawn out cycle...
"Let's get this out of the way up top: The lunacy of real-world politics and the Donald Trump presidency have not made House of Cards dull; repetitive plotting, too many one-dimensional characters and an increasingly broad and hammy lead performance have made House of Cardsdull. The lunacy of real-world politics and the Trump presidency have just made House of Cardsfeel redundant and pleasant, which isn't the same thing at all.Premiering Tuesday, May 30, the fifth season of House of Cards is the first without longtime showrunner Beau Willimon.
Fans of the series will be relieved to know that new showrunners Melissa James Gibson and Frank Pugliese have kept the trains moving on time, while more tentative or wearied viewers should be warned that the frustrating aspects of the series have only grown worse and House of Cards spends at least seven or eight episodes of the new season spinning its wheels and running on forgettable fumes."

If the show is running on fumes, why watch it? Who can top the reality TV surrounding Donald Trump and his propaganda press anyway?
