What May Possibly Happen in Designated Survivor Season 3?
The official Netflix outline for third season states, “President Kirkman will face a political reality… campaigning. What does it take to make a leader? What price will he be willing to pay? This season will explore today’s world of campaigning, smear tactics, debates, campaign finance, and ‘fake news.’ Democracy, as we know it, will hang in the balance.”
Sutherland said in a recent interview, “Next season would undoubtedly have to be the beginning of an election [campaign] – just the timing alone would dictate that and then I think you’re going to have to deal with a character who has to make the decision if he really wants to run in the first place.”
He also further added, “He’s gone through the loss of his wife. He’s spent less and less time with his children, and the one thing that character valued more than anything at the very opening of that show was his family – and it’s been not that slowly pulled apart. So, there are more decisions that will have to be made.”
