'Designated Survivor' renewed for second season by ABC
UPI News Service, 05/16/2017
ABC said Tuesday it has ordered a second season of Kiefer Sutherland's political thriller "Designated Survivor" to air in the 2017-18 television year.
Sutherland plays Tom Kirkman, a low-level Cabinet member suddenly appointed president of the United States after an attack on the U.S. Capitol during the State of the Union kills most members of the government.
Season 1 -- in which Kirkman learns to lead while also trying to figure out who was behind the atrocity -- is to wrap up Wednesday.
