Word is out this evening that ABC has renewed Designated Survivor for a second season. The good news was somewhat expected, as the freshman series has been one of the network's best-performing new entries this season.

The political drama marks Kiefer Sutherland's first return to a starring role on television since 2014's 24: Live Another Day. Sutherland plays a Cabinet member who is unexpectedly thrust into the role of President of the United States after a bombing at the Capitol kills a number of key government figures. After being sworn in as President, he starts to learn that the catastrophic attack was only the beginning of a much larger plan.

Look for Season 2 of Designated Survivor this fall.
