Designated Survivor season 3 starring Kiefer Sutherland is coming to Netflix on June 7, 2019. This is the first season of the series as a Netflix original.

Designated Survivor season 3 is coming to Netflix on June 7, 2019!

Netflix announced the news in a video posted on social media and YouTube. In the video, Kiefer Sutherland, star of the now-Netflix original series, shares the new season release date and also recaps the first two seasons of the series. You can watch the video below!

Netflix saved this series after it was canceled by ABC after two seasons. Netflix picked up the show for a third season, and there’s probably more on the way.

The first two seasons of Designated Survivor are now streaming on Netflix. The seasons were not there when Netflix ordered this new season and saved the show from cancellation, but they are now, and you have less than two months to get caught up before season 3 premieres.

For those who don’t know, the series is a political thriller that tells the story of Tom Kirkman, who takes over as President of the United States after the President and Vice President are killed in an attack.

Check out the release date announcement and recap, via Netflix:

The series was created by David Guggenheim and stars Sutherland, Kal Penn, Adan Canto, Italia Ricci, and Maggie Q.

When Designated Survivor was on ABC, the show aired weekly. Of course, that won’t be the case with season 3. Netflix almost always releases new seasons of their shows at one time, and that will happen with Designated Survivor. That means you can binge-watch the new season as fast as you want or slow it down and stretch this season out as long as you want. The choice is yours!
