Neve Campbell shot down speculation that the fifth season of Netflix's "House of Cards" borrowed from actual events surrounding the 2016 presidential election and Donald Trump's administration.

"Every season seems to have something that is true to life or true to some event that’s happening in the real world.

The show has not gone out and actually tried to tear stories from the newspapers," Campbell told Business Insider on Friday.

There are certainly aspects of the show, which returns on Tuesday, that do echo some themes from the presidential election.

That was also a popular chant for Trump protesters after he won the presidential election with Electoral College votes but did not win the popular vote.

But Campbell calls those kinds of similarities between the show and reality "accidental."
