Designated Survivor: Netflix in talks for season 3

Guns, nuclear bombs, poison, torture and countless terrorists couldn't stop Jack but as reported previously, those pesky suits appear to have put an end to Sutherland's most recent show, Designated Survivor, after ABC cancelled the show. It means tomorrow's Season 2 finale is serving as the series finale - at least on the broadcast network, as co-producer eOne is now shopping the series.

In fact, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey stated that the high turnover of showrunners was one of the main reasons for its cancellation.

The news was somewhat surprising, as the show had been expected to receive a season three renewal; although live ratings weren't particularly strong, its delayed viewing numbers were impressive, and it had been profitable for the network thanks to its worldwide distribution deal with Netflix.

"Creatively, we've had a lot of behind-the-scenes churn on the show in terms of the number of showrunners involved", she reportedly noted. "We were less confident about the creative path forward than the other shows we brought back".

Sutherland stars in the series alongside Natasha McElhone, Adan Canto, Italia Ricci, LaMonica Garrett, Tanner Buchanan, Kal Penn, Maggie Q and Paulo Costanzo.
