Designated Survivor premiered just a few short weeks ago, but the Kiefer Sutherland is already set for a full season. Jon Harmon Feldman, the man behind the new ABC drama, spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the new series and the full season order.
He said the following about the impact the full season order has on the rest of the season:
“It doesn’t change things. We always had different signposts we were building to. We had a longer arc in mind if we were going to get the opportunity to tell those stories. Now that we are, we’ll just dive into that. But it’s not changing the short-term, and it allows us to fully explore the long term.”
A previous interview with Kiefer Sutherland revealed ABC’s plans to pick up Designated Survivor for a full season.
