Designated Survivor is nearing the end of its second season, but will it get a third? Recently, star Kiefer Sutherland spoke with Digital Spy about the future of the ABC TV show.
The political drama follows Tom Kirkman (Kiefer Sutherland), a lower-level Cabinet member who ends up becoming the President of the United States after an attack on Washington D.C. The cast also includes Adan Canto, LaMonica Garrett, Kal Penn, Maggie Q, Malik Yoba, Paulo Costanzo, Zoe McLellan, Ben Lawson, Tanner Buchanan, and Mckenna Grace.
“I do believe it is [coming back], but nothing is ever written in stone. I think television is such an exciting format right now, and so much great work is being done. [But] I think networks are very challenged by how to keep up.”
And when will we know? Sutherland says sometime in May:
Do I believe we’re going to do a third season? Yes. Is that a guarantee? Not until, I think, May 15. So we’ll see, we’ll see.”
What do you think? Do you watch Designated Survivor? Do you want a third season?
