‘DESIGNATED SURVIVOR’ TO RETURN ON NETFLIX FOLLOWING ABC CANCELLATION
Written by Rick Rizer on September 7, 2018
“Designated Survivor” is the latest canceled TV show to be revived by a streaming service. ABC axed the Kiefer Sutherland-starring political thriller back in May due to low ratings. Four months later, Netflix has decided to pick it up for a third season. The third season is only going to consist of 10 episodes, whereas season one and season two had 21 and 22 episodes, respectively. The showrunner is also being replaced, with veteran ER scribe Neal Baer taking over for Keith Eisner.
