There's no reconciliation in the cards for the Underwoods. At least not yet.

On Wednesday, Netflix released the first House of Cards season trailer containing actual new footage from the upcoming fourth season, and it's clear Frank (Kevin Spacey) and Claire (Robin Wright) are still very much on opposite sides in the show's return.

"You have no idea what it means to have nothing. You don't value what we have achieved," Frank says in the pulse-pounding video. "I have had to fight for everything my entire life."

So does that mean Frank is going to fight to win back his right-hand woman? Or is he going to fight to take her down once and for all? It's hard to tell with someone as two-faced as Frank Underwood. However, that's hardly the only burning question that comes from the new promo.

The footage also reveals that Ellen Burstyn will guest-star, as will Emmy winner Cicely Tyson, according to the confirmed cast list, which was also released Wednesday.

The trailer contains fresh clues as to who new, previously announced guest stars Neve Campbell and Joel Kinnaman will play. The former at least looks to be on Claire's side in one tense standoff with Frank. 

The rest of the Season 4 cast includes Michael Kelly, Mahershala Ali, Jayne Atkinson, Derek Cecil, Nathan Darrow, Kim Dickens, Elizabeth Marvel, Dominique McElligott, Molly Parker and Paul Sparks.
