When last we saw House of Cards antihero Frank Underwood, he was declaring a new war on terror in an effort to distract the nation from a devastating exposé of his misdeeds by journalist Tom Hammerschmidt. As showrunner Melissa James Gibson told Yahoo TV in our Spring TV Preview, “Season 5 picks up on that, and we see the Underwoods using fear and terror to maintain power at all costs.”

As you’ll see from these exclusive photos  — shot by Pete Souza, chief official White House photographer for Presidents Ronald Regan and Barack Obama — President Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) remains focused on pressing the flesh and working hard for (against?) the American people today. That includes a stop at a D.C. chili joint, of course. Souza’s images are being shot in Washington, D.C., today for a “Day in the Life of Frank Underwood” portfolio commissioned by Netflix.

House of Cards Season 5 premieres Tuesday, May 30, on Netflix.
