It was indeed a controversial TV series and the least appreciated on the political front. The series indeed made its way to three seasons, but finally, the time has come when the series won’t be renewed any further. Netflix has confirmed the announcement regarding the cancellation of the series, and there is no chance that there will be another season of Designated Survivor. So if you were among the pool of audience waiting for a thumbs up to the fourth season, then it is indeed bad news for you.
The first three seasons did give an insight that the series may have some big changes, but the cancellation wasn’t anticipated, but anyway, this is the reality. The announcement came in July 2019, but the reasons weren’t disclosed, so rumors kept on emerging about a possible fourth season.
What was Designated Survivor all about?
It was one of the most controversial politico-drama, and this made it popular among people across the age bracket and regions. The series had ups and downs right from the beginning. The series premiered on ABC studios in the year 2018, but after a while, it was shifted to Netflix. After getting the reigns of the series, Netflix revamped the series and brought it under the Netflix originals.
After its inception on the streaming giant, the series gained way more publicity than it had gained on ABC studios. And the next two seasons were released by Netflix, but finally, they also parted their ways with the series, and now it has been officially canceled. The series showcase high profile political drama where outrageous things began to happen. Over time a low ranking politician in a sudden turn of events rose to the highest office of the country and becomes the president of the United States of America.
The series depicts the conflict of a president’s political and personal lives. He was made the president at such a crucial juncture that his credibility was at stake.
What’s the possibility of having a fourth season of Designated Survivor?
The first season of Designated Survivor was indeed phenomenal, but the subsequent season couldn’t hold up to the expectations. The series of things happening around the political sphere was simply way too outrageous, and at times things were hyperbolic too. There were instances where fans rightly thought that the actions were not only uncalled for but illogical too. So there was a lot of disappointment with the series.
Certain expectations are paramount in any series, as we choose a series by its genesis, and then we have complimentary stuff to avoid the monotonicity. In further seasons, the series relied more on complimentary stuff than the core issues at hand. This was something that seems to have worsened the essence of the series.
It would have been great if they could have thought about the storyline and came up with something more sensible.
