A political drama following a Cabinet member who is appointed President after a deadly attack on the Capitol.

After a deadly explosion kills the President and members of the Cabinet on the night of the State of the Union address, the nation is suddenly left without a Commander in Chief.

Tom Kirkman, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, had been named the designated survivor and is therefore the next in the chain of command. He is promptly sworn in as President, though he has no way of knowing that the catastrophic attack was only the beginning of a much larger plan.

Certainly a disappointment that this show was canceled. Certainly a good show and a lot better quality than some of thee shows on now. Please consider another season. Please ask Kiefer Sutherland to be a candidate for President.

Thank you

Designated survivor is so incredibly well done and action packed! Acting is superb and the premise is different. Ive never been onnthe edge of my seat, anxious, elated, tearful from a political thriller before. NETFLIX. Bravo for taking this show on your network. Please make another season. I want to see Moss and Kirkman vie for the presidency!!!!!!!!!

Shouldn’t be cancelled! When will Netflix produce their own series and continue those cancelled by network tv? Didn’t watch 24. This is much better! Keep Keizer Sutherland in the whitehouse!

I can't believe this show has been cancelled. It was the best show on tv. If it wasn't for General Hospital, I would never watch ABC again! All of you, that work for the network, need to rethink your actions!!!
