If you thought you'd seen the last of Kevin Spacey, you're wrong.

The embattled actor is back posting another video online to wrap up the year, but this time, his video carried eerie undertones reminiscent of his "House of Cards" character, Frank Underwood.

Spacey, who has very little social media presence, titled the minutelong video "KTWK," or Kill Them With Kindness." The title set the tone for the clip.

“You didn’t think I would miss the opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas, did you?” Spacey asks in the video. “It’s been a pretty good year.”

Spacey says he’s made a couple of changes in his life, alluding to an even better 2020.

“As we walk into 2020, I want to cast my vote for more good in this world,” he continues. “The next time someone does something you don’t like, you can go on the attack or you can hold your fire and do something they don’t like -- you can kill them with kindness.”

The former “House of Cards” star recognizes the strange nature of the video when he breaks the fourth wall slightly to respond to viewers who might be asking if he's serious with his message.

"I’m dead serious,” Spacey says as he stares back into the camera.

Spacey’s video and the one he posted for Christmas last year garnered millions of views. Outside of them, the actor has said little in public as he fights allegations of sexual misconduct.

Earlier this year, prosecutors dropped an indecent assault and battery charge against the actor after his accuser declined to testify in connection to a 2016 incident at a Nantucket bar.

In October, prosecutors dropped another case against Spacey after the accuser died.
