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.
Are you a fan of Sutherland’s latest series? Tell us what you think.
I loved this show .Each episode kept me on the edge of my seat, and I have been awaiting its return. Keifer Sutherland was made for this role. President Kirkland reminds me of Jack Bauer;his mannerisms and facial expressions are the same. I hope ABC keeps the series going.
Omg this tv show is mesmerising I am from Britain, I can’t wait for the next episode what a fantastic actor kiefer
sutherland is. His father should be very proud of him, his 24 series was brilliant, but designated survivor, is outstanding, monumental,
phenomenal, I could go on and on. I have got all my friends and family watching, short of putting flyers out for everyone to watch it.
You are incredible Mr. Sutherland and I wish you even more success for the future you are a man of many talents.
I think it is a tremmendous drama. I hope the network gives it time yo develop. It has captured my attention right of the get go.
I am still waiting to hear about the status of my shows on A&E. I miss watching them. I am talking about Wahlburgers and Donnie loves Jenny. When will I hear the fate of these two??????????????
