Netflix has released the Season 3 trailer for DC political thriller Designated Survivor, its first season on the internet TV network. Netflix picked up the drama series last September after its cancellation by ABC.
Kiefer Sutherland stars as a low-level cabinet member who is suddenly catapulted to the position of President of the United States after a devastating terrorist attack strikes during the State of the Union, killing all those ahead of him in the presidential succession line.
In season 3 President Kirkman (Sutherland) faces 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. (Sound familiar?)
The series also stars Adan Canto as Aaron Shore, Italia Ricci as Emily Rhodes, with Kal Penn as Seth Wright and Maggie Q as Hannah Wells. New series regulars include Anthony Edwards as Mars Harper, Julie White as Lorraine Zimmer, Ben Watson as Dontae Evans and Elena Tovar as Isabel Pardo.
