After nailing the streaming platform in 2019, Designated Survivor season Four is all set for more excitement and curiosity as to what season 4 unfolds. Regardless of the expectations that take for President Tom Kirkman, the supporters have indeed acknowledged the otherwise stated desires for the further extension of the collection.
The American political thriller, Designated Survivor, created by David Guggenheim, is an amazing contribution to the drama genre which has continued to please its fanbase with a successful three seasons- two that aired on ABC and the third season exclusively and globally on Netflix.
The story revolves around an American politician named as the designated survivor for the State of the Union address, who promoted from the position of U.S Secretary of Housing and Urban Development to President of the United States post an explosion that kills everyone ahead of him in the presidential line of succession.
The thriller features Kiefer Sutherland as Thomas Kirkman who is the protagonist in the show where he deals with his inexperience as head of state and balancing all his duties while investigating the attack.
With an audience of over 10 million viewers, it is a major bummer that there hasn’t been any confirmation news about the release or production of the successive season.
Apart from Netflix’s declaration to hold the showcasing of the thriller series for the years to would come, there hasn’t been much of a hubbub regarding the release apart from the gratitude and thanking of the crew, cast and the audience.
While the chances are quite bleak, it is for sure that it won’t be showcased on any other network after Netflix. The season three concluded with President Tom Kirkman being re-selected, however, Kiefer Sutherland’s return is still a question if the collection was conserved for a second time.
There’s a possibility that Tanner Buchanan may return if the series were to continue, like Tom’s son Leo who did not arrive in season three as he was learning at Stanford College. Moving ahead, the same can be said for the remainder of the cast of the thriller- Adan Canto as Aaron, Elena Tovar as Isabel, McKenna Grace as Penny, Anthony Edwards as Mars, Jamie Clayton as Sasha, along with Benjamin Charles Watson as Dontae.
Emily’s account which is played by Italia Ricci is technically concluded by the end of season three where she is terrified by the deep intrigues found all through the presidential marketing campaign. Nevertheless, the role may be resumed into a model unspoiled season if such a scenario arises.
Julie White as Lorraine was shown captured by the FBI which probably orders her out as well. As for Seth’s character, Kal Penn is showcased with altogether different plans which drops his place in disbelief, too.
With such paralleled plots, unless the season production takes place, it can be safely said that the story of Thomas Kirkman is sadly over.
