President Tom Kirkman is headed to Netflix.After being canceled by ABC earlier this year, &#8220;Designated Survivor&#8221; has been picked up for a third season by the streaming giant. Entertainment One&#8217;s Neal Baer will serve as the new showrunner for the Kiefer Sutherland-led political drama.&#8220;The continuation of the show via Netflix is a win-win for all involved,&#8221; said executive producer Mark Gordon in a statement. &#8220;The story of President Kirkman and those around him has not been fully told, and we look forward to working with our new partner in continuing the show for a global audience.&#8221;The 10-episode &#8220;Designated Survivor&#8221; Season 3 will follow the president as he is thrust into the world of political campaigning, which means tackling smear tactics, debates, campaign finance and more.&#8220;I am thrilled to have the opportunity to play President Kirkman for Season 3,&#8221; Sutherland said in a statement. &#8220;I believe this format will allow us to continue to delve deeply into story lines and issues concerning the American electorate that were not previously possible.&#8221;The third season will be produced as a Netflix original and will go into production later this year for a 2019 debut. For U.S. and Canadian viewers, the first two seasons of &#8220;Designated Survivor&#8221; will hit the streaming service this fall.Baer will also serve as executive producer on &#8220;Designated Survivor&#8221; along with creator David Guggenheim.
