Robin Wright’s character Claire Underwood declared that the “reign of the middle-aged white man is over” in the trailer for the final season of “House of Cards.”

“My first 100 days as president have been difficult,” the 52-year-old actress shared in a video posted on YouTube by Netflix Thursday(RELATED: Robin Wright: ‘House Of Cards’ Came ‘Very Close’ To Being Canceled)


“I lost my husband. We were about to celebrate 30 years together,” she added. “Here’s the thing. Whatever Francis [Underwood] told you in the last five years, don’t believe a word of it.”

Wright continued, “The reign of the middle-aged white man is over. The world is either with us or against us. It’s going to be different for you and me.”

The 59-year-old actor — who played the lead character Francis Underwood on the streaming site’s popular political drama — was fired from the series after sexual misconduct allegations surfaced last October by members on the production staff of the show.

They also came following an accusation by “Star Trek” star Anthony Rapp who alleged that the “American Beauty” star had made a sexual advance at him when he was 14. Spacey at the time was 26.

In an earlier promo, fans learned that Spacey’s character has been killed off as Madame President stood talking to his gravestone in the clip.

Two newcomers to the show, Dianne Lane and Greg Kinnear also appear in the one-minute trailer. They will be joined by returning members of the cast like Campbell Scott, Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer and Boris McGiver.

“House of Cards” final season hits Netflix November 2.
