The Underwoods are back in the game in a first-look preview of House of Cards season 5.

The scheming couple have spent the better part of a season-and-a-half trying tear each other apart in every conceivable way, but it looks like they're finally back on the same page in the photos below:

A truce is particularly timely, with US president Frank Underwood's tough election fight with equally-cunning Republican opponent Will Conway (Joel Kinnaman) looming this season.

"They are a couple of survivors, and power is the Underwoods' religion," new co-showrunner Melissa James Gibson told Entertainment Weekly. "They need each other as much as ever and are constantly navigating the other's character."

Gibson added: "Francis wasn't elected president, so this is the real test: What is the will of the people, and can he work his Machiavellian magic on them?"

Unfortunately, it won't be all smooth sailing for the president and his Veep-wife Claire (Robin Wright) - Claire's former fling Tom Yates (Paul Sparks) will return to cause trouble at the worst possible time.

They'll also have to account for Patricia Clarkson (The Green Mile) and Campbell Scott (The Amazing Spider-Man), who are both joining Netflix's hit political thriller for its next run.
