In its first months on the air, Designated Survivor drew large audiences, setting DVR lift records and snagging the Critics' Choice Award for most exciting new series in its first season.
We had recently reported that Designated Survivor, the ABC drama that stars Kiefer Sutherland, had been canceled by the network after two seasons.
Well, it appears that might not be the case because Netflix are seriously considering the idea of making a third season. However, Hulu now has the streaming rights for the first two season, so this could all get very complicated.

The offensive tackle also said Pats owner Robert Kraft and coach Bill Belichick were talking trash ahead of the Super Bowl . And that's what I got mad at, the arrogance of them. "There was obviously some stuff behind closed doors", he explained.
Meanwhile, at the 2018 ABC Upfronts on May 15 in New York City, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said the decision to cancel Designated Survivor was "a hard one". "I think, creatively, we've also had a lot of behind-the-scenes turn on that show in terms of the number of showrunners that were involved".
As Netflix don't release viewing figures, we don't really know how popular the series is outside of the States, but, the words of ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey suggest that the addition of U.S. and Canadian markets to the fold in the event of a pick-up could make it a worthwhile move.
Ratings-wise, the show did fairly well early on, averaging nearly six million viewers, but more recently it had only been averaging around four million viewers, which placed it near the bottom of ABC's top drama series.
