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.

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!!!

I was surprised and disappointed to see this was cancelled. It was definitely one of the smarter, more interesting shows on television.

This was a great show-- and that's the problem-- it was not conveying the "message" that ABC wants to portray. Do your own research-- the (formerly) top TV networks, the (formerly) top radio stations, the (formerly) top newspapers, the (formerly) top news magazines, and many of the currently popular websites are owned by a small group of people and/or corporations that have a singular point of view and a singular goal that they also want YOU to have. What better way to do that, then to pound your brain day in and day out with their message? They don't call it TV "programming" for nothing! They are "programming" your subconscious mind! TH!NK ABOUT IT !!! Why did they ban and/or de-platform the website? Same reason. WAKE UP people!!! STOP watching the "FakeStream News", and do your OWN research!

Why is it that all the really good shows go off the air and are replaced with a ZOMBIE show or a DIM WITTED show. Are you related to the same people that took LONGMIRE off the air and replaced it with another DIM WITTED show. How pathetic some of these shows have become, and of course they are aimed more at the so called younger generation. We maybe older but we still are able to watch are favorite shows unless you cancel them.

I can’t believe you cancelled the best show on your station. There are so few decent, intelligent shows to watch. I absolutely hate zombie or soft or reality shows. What is it with you guys. Who is running the show? Please bring it back.

Designated Survivor was one of the best shows on TV and one that my husband and I looked forward to. Can't believe that it is being cancelled since there are so very good shows on TV these days. We're not interested is Syfi, Zombies or Supernatural shows and I'll bet there are many other people who are disappointed with this cancellation.

Cancelled you say.... ARE YOU SERIOUS? I wouldn't mind if you cancelled the show because KS has decided to revive 24 and be Jack Baurer again. That sh*t would make my day and I will forgive you for cancelling this :D
