Designated Survivor may survive after all. The axed ABC political thriller is actively being shopped to other outlets for a Season 3 revival, Deadine reports:
eOne sources have told Deadline that “it’s not over” and that it’s starting to look at whether there is another home for the thriller. “We’re right at the beginning but there’s more to play on that one,” said the exec. If the producer and distributor did find a deal, it would be the latest high-profile series, following Brooklyn Nine-Nine, this season to find a new home after cancellation.
In fact, the company, which is listed on the London Stock Exchange, has just put out a regulatory statement, confirming that it is “in active discussions with other parties for further series of the show”.
