Some series end abruptly and leave the fans with heartbreak. Designated Survivor was formally announced in May 2016 by ABC. The political thriller drama served an overwhelming conspiracy in the plot. The show was created by David Guggenheim while Sean Callery, Paul Leonard-Morgan, and Robert Lydecker composed the series. The third season of Designated Survivor aired in June 2019, now is it time for Designated Survivor Season 4? Here are the updates for the fans.
Release Date: Designated Survivor Season 4
The first season of Designated Survivor aired on ABC on 21 September 2016, followed by a second season that aired on 27 September 2017. The network then canceled the production for the next seasons. But Netflix and the studio Entertainment One revived the series for a third season which streamed exclusively on Netflix for ten episodes.
For the fans who are wondering about when season 4 of Designated Survivor will arrive, we have a piece of bad news. However, the streamer also canceled the series, so there is no release date for Designated Survivor Season 4.
Cast: Designated Survivor Season 4
Even though the series is canceled for the next season, the previous seasons had an amazing cast. It consisted of Kiefer Sutherland portraying the character of Tom Kirkman. Adan Canto played the role of Aaron Shore, while Italia Ricci played the character of Emily Rhodes. Kal Penn and Maggie Q portrayed the characters of Seth Wright and Hannah Wells respectively. The artists left a mark on the viewers’ minds, thus making it hard for the fans to let go of the series.
Reason for Cancellation: Designated Survivor Season 4
Almost every series that Netflix canceled were mostly due to degrading viewership or ratings of the show. Apparently, this wasn’t the case with Designated Survivor Season 4’s cancellation. The series was canceled due to some contract issues. While we know that Netflix only signs a one-year contract with the actors, which is different from those television contracts.
Understandably, Netflix doesn’t make long-term contracts. The showrunners of Designated Survivors also understand the reason why Netflix does so. But due to this, the actors got involved in other commitments which adds up to the cancellation of the series. However, fans and some of the cast members were not ready to let the show go, not just yet.
Storyline: Designated Survivor Season 4
Throughout the series, we follow the character of Thomas Kirkman. An explosion on the night of the State of Union at Capitol Building ended up killing the President and everyone else in the line, except Kirkman. At that time, Thomas Kirkman was holding the position of Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. After the tragedy, Kirkman is sworn as the President. But we see that it was not easy for Kirkman to balance his aspirations as a politician and be seen as a capable president.
