Wait, Is Designated Survivor Season 3 Actually Happening Now?
BY NICK VENABLE  

When Kiefer Sutherland returned to TV for his non-Jack Bauer role on Designated Survivor, it seemed possible the show could easily last longer than an actual U.S. President's official term in office. Unfortunately, so-so ratings and behind-the-scenes issues caused ABC to cancel the drama after just two seasons, leaving its cliffhanger completely unresolved. But it now appears that Designated Survivor Season 3 in in active development and may indeed be going into production soon, although it's not immediately clear how, or where it would be airing. And those aren't the only mysteries.

Rather than Kiefer Sutherland himself sharing the news himself, or ABC putting out some cryptic teasers, the potential Designated Survivor reveal comes from the most recent report from the reliable publication Production Weekly. It's listed that Designated Survivor Season 3 is set to kick off production in Toronto, which is also where the previous seasons were filmed. As well, no cast members are listed for Season 3, although Keith Eisner is listed once again as showrunner, a role he filled in Season 2, even though Neal Baer was reportedly going to take over showrunning duties in Season 3. And finally, it's stated that the show is going under the working title of The White House Project, presumably to discourage onlookers from taking pics and leaking spoilers. Of course, onlookers probably wouldn't be paying attention to a show if they aren't even aware it's back on the air.

Unfortunately, the news about the cast was comparable to the news about where Designated Survivor would even be planning to air Season 3, in that it was fully absent. One would think ABC would go public with news about resurrecting Designated Survivor for another season, so it's probably not the network. There were rumors going a while back that said Netflix would step in to renew the political thriller, but unless the streaming giant is also being coy for no real reason, then it's probably not heading to Netflix, either. ABC is presumably still one of the production companies behind the drama, so perhaps there are active discussions behind had amongst execs about where Kiefer Sutherland's Tom Kirkman should show up next.

Kiefer Sutherland Addresses Fans Directly as 'Designated Survivor' Gets Resuscitated by Netflix
By STEPHEN ANDREW - September 7, 2018

Kiefer Sutherland has directly addressed fans of Designated Survivor, thinking them for helping to get the show resuscitated by Netflix.

As has been reported, the political-drama was cancelled by ABC after two seasons, but was recently picked up by the streaming giant for a 10-episode third season.

We are so excited that Designated Survivor is coming back for the third season, largely in-part because fans of the show really petitioned for its return," Sutherland said in his message posted to Twitter.


At this time there is no word on whether or not this will be the final season of Designated Survivor, but if the third season does well for Netflix they could be inclined to go further with it.


Following the announcement of the show's revival, many fans have taken to social media to express their excitement over the new season.


"Netflix has done the right thing and picked up Designated Survivor for a third season," one person tweeted. "All is well with the world."
