Good news as Netflix revive 'Designated Survivor' for a third season

Netflix revives Designated Survivor for a third season to tackle democracy and fake news. The streaming service revived the series after ABC canceled the political drama in May due to low ratings.
The third season will have 10 episodes and be a global Netflix original. The series will take on a new direction under Law & Order: SVU alum Neal Baer, who will serve as its fifth showrunner. Core cast members are set to return, including Sutherland, Kal Penn, Adan Canto, and Italia Ricci. Production is set to begin later this year for a season premiere in 2019, so you won't have to wait long to see more of the story.

Sutherland said in a statement "I am thrilled to have the opportunity to play President Kirkman for season three of Designated Survivor, I believe this format will allow us to continue to delve deeply into storylines and issues concerning the American electorate that were not previously possible."

The third season is expected to focus on President Kirkman's bid for re-election. According to the synopsis, the season will explore today's world of campaigning, smear tactics, debates, campaign finance, and fake news. Democracy, as we know it, will hang in the balance.
