CULVER CITY, CALIF. (April 14, 2014) - The highly anticipated and critically acclaimed political drama, HOUSE OF CARDS: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON, produced by Media Rights Capital, arrives on Blu-ray and DVD June 17 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The series returns with two-time Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey (American Beauty, Best Actor in a Leading Role, 1999; The Usual Suspects, Best Actor in a Supporting Role; 1995) 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 (Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Drama). This series continues to sizzle with intensity as the ruthless Underwoods stop at nothing to climb the political food chain.

All 13 episodes will be available on the four-disc Blu-ray and four-disc DVD sets for HOUSE OF CARDS: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON with stunning collectible packaging on both releases, along with five bonus featurettes. "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. "Politics for Politics Sake" explores the universal themes of the show, including relationships and power, not just politics. Finally, in "Line of Succession," fans can get a closer look at the creative process that goes into producing an episode.

HOUSE OF CARDS: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON features an exceptional cast, including Kate Mara (TV's "American Horror Story"), Michael Kelly (TV's "Person of Interest"), Sakina Jaffrey (The Domino Effect), Sebastian Arcelus (TV's "Dora the Explorer"), Michael Gill (TV's "Guiding Light"), Gerald McRaney (TV's "Mike & Molly"), Molly Parker (TV's "Dexter"), Nathan Darrow (Rigged), Jayne Atkinson (TV's "Criminal Minds"), David Clennon (J. Edgar), Boris McGiver (TV's "Person of Interest"), Larry Pine (TV's "Hostages"), Curtiss Cook (TV's "Blue Bloods" ), Spencer Garrett (TV's "Masters of Sex") and John Scurti (TV's "Rescue Me").

Written by award-winning playwright and Academy Award nominated screenwriter Beau Willimon ("Farragut North;" The Ides of March, Best Writing, Adapted Screenplay, 2011), HOUSE OF CARDS: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON is executive produced by David Fincher, Beau Willimon, Eric Roth, Joshua Donen, Kevin Spacey, Dana Brunetti, Andrew Davies, Michael Dobbs and John Melfi. The one-hour drama is produced by Wade/Thomas Productions and Trigger Street Productions, Inc. in association with Media Rights Capital.
