But the newly released Season 5 finally shines a larger light on Frank's probable bisexuality by giving him a new male character to hook up with.

House of Cards showrunner Beau Willimon has spoken out about one of the show's most-talked about mysteries - President Underwood's sexuality. Married to Claire but enjoying threesomes with his bodyguard and having mildly homoerotic moments with author Tom Yates and former Chief of Staff Doug Stamper, Frank avoids talking about his sexuality, even in his asides. I quite like how unexplained it is, suggesting Frank follows his desires wherever they come and is not concerned with labels. Is he gay? Not necessarily a sexual one, but it could be.
