There is time yet for Netflix's political drama, "House of Cards" Season 5's premiere, but Michael Kelly provided a clue about what's in store.

During a recent interview, the actor who plays the role of Doug Stamper said that the political thriller has always included "crazy s---" and that fans can expect "radical changes" as the show progresses.

"I feel like any big changes that have happened on the show, it's always well-warranted or well-deserved, that the audience will get it. They might have to wait longer than on your typical TV show, but they will bring you back," Deadline quoted him as saying.

Kelly also spoke about his time on the political thriller and added that he fashioned his character, Doug Stamper's personality based on a piece of advice he received from Beau Willimon. According to Kelly, Willimon asked him not to emote, especially in the show's pilot season.

And in many ways, Willimon's advice has paid off. Doug's lack of expression and a sense of self-restraint have become his quintessential traits. Fans often remember Doug for his calm demeanour, which hides just how diabolical and dangerous he can be. However, Kelly owes much of this success to Willimon, who gifted him a role that's the "greatest gift" he's ever received. 

Earlier, spoilers and speculations for "House of Cards" Season 5 suggested that Kelly's character would die in the new instalment of the political thriller. Although Kelly didn't comment on the rumours, he negated them by stating that he's grateful his character isn't yet dead on the show. 

While talking to Deadline, Kelly added that he's currently filming episode 1 and 2 of "House of Cards" Season 5, and said he's looking forward to how it will play out the rest of the year. 

"House of Cards" Season 5 will premiere in the first half of 2017.
