ABC wasn't "confident about the creative path" — Designated Survivor' cancellation

ABC  Ben Mark Holzberg

Does the line of succession for Designated Survivor lead to Netflix?

After NBC let it go, Netflix ostensibly showed immediate interest in continuing Kiefer Sutherland-starring political thriller "Designated Survivor" on its streaming service.

As Netflix don't release viewing figures, we don't really know how popular the series is outside of the States, but, the words of ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey suggest that the addition of USA and Canadian markets to the fold in the event of a pick-up could make it a worthwhile move. However, the site notes that one sticking block may be the fact that Netflix rival Hulu has the US VOD rights to the first two seasons, something which the parties are looking to untangle.

Plus, say goodbye to 'Kevin Can Wait, ' Fox's 'Lucifer, ' ABC's 'Designated Survivor, ' and many more.

EU's Tusk hits out at Trump's 'capricious assertiveness'
Tusk said the European Union must be more united than ever before to face off against Trump's "capricious assertiveness". Therefore US tariffs can not be justified on the basis of national security. "The EU and U.S. are friends and partners".

"It did do well in delayed viewing". "We were less confident about the creative path forward than the other shows we brought back".

The production of the show has been turbulent with four showrunners in two seasons, and a fifth signing on for a potential third season.

Sutherland stars in the series alongside Natasha McElhone, Adan Canto, Italia Ricci, LaMonica Garrett, Tanner Buchanan, Kal Penn, Maggie Q and Paulo Costanzo.
