[ # ] Designated Survivor is designated to survive on Netflix
September 5th, 2018 under Kiefer Sutherland, Netflix
Back in May, ABC cancelled Designated Survivor. Today, nearly 4 months later, Netflix announced that they elected the show for a third term, I mean season.

According to the press release, “President Kirkman (Kiefer Sutherland) will face a political reality. campaigning. What does it take to make a leader? What price will he be willing to pay? This season will explore today’s world of campaigning, smear tactics, debates, campaign finance and ‘fake news.’ Democracy, as we know it, will hang in the balance.”

The show will begin filming its 10 episodes later this year and air sometime in 2019. No word if the series’ other stars like Kal Penn and Italia Ricci will also be returning to the White House with Sutherland. Without them, it just will not be the same.

A big change that was already in the works is still happening behind-the-scenes. Neal Bear, who was the executive producer on Law & Order: SVU and Under the Dome, will take over as EP of this show. The doctor turned producer is someone whose politics I admire. Thus, I cannot wait to see what changes he brings to the political drama.

If you never saw the show on ABC, then you will be able to stream the first two seasons on Netflix.

UPDATE: Italia Ricci posted a cryptic message on Instagram about the show being saved from cancellation. She wrote, “Wait. What? 😏” Did they not tell her about the revival? Time will tell…

UPDATE 2: Kal Penn wrote, “I AM SO EXCITED THAT WE CAN FINALLY TALK ABOUT THIS! Season 3 baby! Thank you to all the fans. We love you guys.” Then he followed up with, “My mom is gonna be so relieved that I have a job for another few months.”
