Netflix Sets UK Return Date For ‘Designated Survivor’ Season 2

ABC’s drama series Designated Survivor will return to Netflix UK to finish airing its second season from Thursday March 1st, it has been announced.

New episodes will then continue to be made available to stream every Thursday, less than 24 hours after they initially air on ABC in the United States.

From David Guggenheim & Mark Gordon, Designated Survivor follows Tom Kirkman, the Secretary of Housing & Urban Development, who succeeds to the Presidency when everyone above him in the line of succession is killed during a catastrophic terrorist attack during the State of the Union. The drama series is produced by Entertainment One (eOne) & The Mark Gordon Company and stars Kiefer Sutherland, Maggie Q, Adan Canto, Italia Ricci, Kal Penn and LaMonica Garrett.

In the next new episode, titled Grief, it’s been ten weeks since his wife, Alex, was killed in a car accident; and President Kirkman’s senior staff insist he seek professional help in dealing with his loss, forcing him to reluctantly see therapist Dr. Adam Louden (Timothy Busfield). Meanwhile, FBI Agent Hannah Wells and Aaron Shore travel to Cuba as part of a trade delegation, but the trip does not go according to plan. With lives in the balance, Kirkman is challenged with a decision that will test his role as commander in chief during this time of personal tragedy.
