The 'Designated Survivor' Netflix Cancellation Explained

By

Why was Designated Survivor cancelled? The future of the show previously looked dismal after Season 2 when ABC decided that they wouldn't re-run the series. Fans were outraged, and then overjoyed when they discovered that streaming giant Netflix was going to pick it up and extend it for another season, which they did.

But when word got out that the show, starring Kiefer Sutherland as an unlikely President, wouldn't be renewed, along with the adult-themed comedy Tuca & Bertie, people were shook.

The news came as a shock to fans, who were probably still reeling from the ABC's previous announcement that they wouldn't be carrying the show forward any longer.
