Netflix's award-winning political thriller "House of Cards" Season 5 has come under intense scrutiny as cancellation rumors floated on the internet. Following showrunner Beau Willimon's exit from the show, it's been nonstop speculations of the show's cancellation despite previous announcements that it's renewed for a fifth season this January.

Thankfully, fans can now breathe in relief. Michael Kelly, who plays Doug Stamper on the series, was reported to have already been working on the first few episodes of "House of Cards" Season 5. But what else can fans  find out "House of Cards" Season 5? Here's a roundup of everything to expect from the show's upcoming fifth season: spoilers, leaks, updates, release dates and more.

Frank Underwood to die in 'House of Cards' Season 5

The biggest theory so far regarding "House of Cards" Season 5 is that President Frank Underwood, played by veteran actor Kevin Spacey, is slated to die. Some fans believed that it's about time that a strong woman take over the United States, and his wife Claire (Robin Wright) is just the right person for the job.

Ever since the show's inception, Claire has been shown as a kind of mastermind behind Frank's political moves, even when he was sleeping with someone else to gain advantage. As such, it won't be surprising if, in "House of Cards" Season 5, Claire teams up with Doug to gain access to the White House--this time, as the president of the United States.

Doug Stamper to die?

Of course, another popular theory regarding "House of Cards" Season 5 is that Doug Stamper is the one to die, Daily Star reported. He's slowly made his way into the centerpiece of the show, and if Frank and Claire Underwood are as smart as they think they are, they would see him for what he is: a threat. Stay tuned for more "House of Cards" Season 5.
