ABC political thriller Designated Survivor doesn’t yet have a premiere date, but Kiefer Suthgerland has already alluded to the possibility of future seasons while describing the plot of the “first season” in an interview with Rolling Stone:
After a “terrible attack,” he is appointed president and faces three problems: How does his family adapt to his new role? How does he deal with political rivals and a power-hungry military? And how will he find the person or persons responsible for the attack. “The character has to face all of these fights and figure out the appropriate response. That’s what the first season is about.”
While it’s not much to go on, the emphasis on “first season” suggests some thought has been given to where the show will go in Season 2, should it survive the cancellation reaper.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the status of Designated Survivor Season 2…
