Designated Survivor has some new company. Deadline reports Anthony Edwards and Julie White have joined the Netflix revival for season three.
As reported earlier, the streaming service had picked up the political drama after it was cancelled by ABC. The series stars Kiefer Sutherland as Tom Kirkman, a low-level Cabinet member who becomes President of the United States after a major attack on the capital.
On Designated Survivor, Edwards will be playing “Mars Harper, the President’s Chief of Staff. Harper is likable and folksy in his manner, and uses that gentility to impose his will.”
Meanwhile, White has been cast as Lorraine Zimmer, the President’s bold, new campaign manager. Season three of Designated Survivor is slated to debut on Netflix in 2019.
