‘Designated Survivor’ Season 3 Awaited Premiere To Unravel Very Soon

Netflix has officially extended and completed the third run of Designated Survivor. After the popular TV and film streaming franchise took over from the ABC network, actor Kiefer Sutherland will continue to be at the helm as US President Tom Kirkman.

The upcoming 10-part episode season has just been concluded around the middle of February 2019 in Toronto. Judging from the four million weekly views the show garnered during season two, the excitement is on as to how it will sustain the volatile handling of a terrorist-intruded political drama.

Although the average ratings had been down after season one, Sutherland has been optimistic and confident that a third stretch under the limelight is in tow following an interview with Digital Spy in April last year. With that in mind, season three is finally underway and ready to go.

Coming back for another run are Kal Penn, Maggie Q and Adan Canto as Seth Wright, Hannah Wells, and Aaron Shore, respectively. Italia Ricci will also continue playing Emily Rhodes. Meanwhile, noteworthy additions from last season Zoe McLellan and Paolo Constanzo will also be back.

Of course, Natascha McElhonne, who portrayed First Lady Alex Kirkman, will no longer be on phase three after being killed last season. However, there are a couple of interesting characters to build on from the second stretch.

First, Sutherland gets reunited with 24 co-star Kim Raver who assumed the entrepreneur role for Andrea Frost. However, there is no guarantee if the plot surrounding her will be sustained into the new season. Still, it will be quite interesting how the relationship with Kirkman will play out.

Second, the Emily Rhodes character is worth following. Her abrupt decision to severe ties with the administration during the second season can turn out to be a nail-biter judging from a captured secret data exchange between her and a Russian spy named Valeria.

Overall, season three of the Designated Survivor will revolve around a political minefield where sustaining the President’s works and stature become the main focus and concern. There is more character building here considering the circumstances which Tom Kirkman had undergone in parts one and two.

Netflix has pointed out that maneuverings or machinations in the bureaucratic state will spell the Presidency of Kiefer Sutherland. Pretty much, the realities of political campaigns will be tackled and delved into.

Taking a cue on what actor Kal Penn has noted, there is a tense tone heading into the down-the-wire scenes of the new season Designated Survivor.

“Designated Survivor” Moving to Netflix for Season 3!

“Designated Survivor” is officially moving from ABC to Netflix for its third season, Variety has learned.

The political drama starring Kiefer Sutherland was cancelled by ABC back in May, but rumors began to swirl almost immediately that series producer eOne were looking to continue the show with the streaming giant. Neal Baer will join the series as showrunner for the third season, which will consist of 10 episodes. Baer will now be the fifth showrunner on “Designated Survivor” since it began.

In the new season, President Kirkman (Sutherland) 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.”

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to play President Kirkman for season 3 of ‘Designated Survivor’ with Netflix, eOne and Neal Baer,” Sutherland said. “I believe this format will allow us to continue to delve deeply into storylines and issues concerning the American electorate that were not previously possible.”

Along with Baer and series creator Mark Guggenheim, Mark Gordon, Sutherland, Suzan Bymel, Simon Kinberg, Aditya Sood, and Peter Noah will all serve as executive producers. The new season will go into production later this year for a 2019 launch, with Seasons 1 and 2 of the show coming exclusively to Netflix this fall.

As Variety reported at the time of the ABC cancellation, the show was ultimately axed by the broadcaster due in part to a potential significant rise in production costs going into the third season as well as declining ratings.

The Season 3 pick up for the show marks the second time in just three months that Netflix has saved a broadcast show after its cancellation. Back in June, Netflix ordered a fourth season of “Lucifer” after it was cancelled by Fox.

‘Designated Survivor’ Episode Stills Added

Hey guys! So sorry for the lack of updates, but life’s been crazy busy for me! Well, I’ve just updated the gallery with some episode stills from season 2 of Designated Survivor and I hope to add more over the next coming week. Hope y’all enjoy!

‘Designated Survivor’ Episode Captures Added

Hey everyone. Sorry again for the delay. I’ve been dealing with a busy schedule on top of a horrible cold, which leads to not a lot of time spent on the computer. I’ve been keeping up with the Designated Survivor gallery over at Screencapped.net so if you’re desperate for caps, go ahead and grab them from there if I’m a little slow at uploading here. It takes a lot of time to cap each episode, sort out the blurry pics, upload to SCNET and then go back and sort the episode all over again to delete everything that isn’t Kiefer and upload here. So, I’m sorry if I’m not up to date each week. Anyway, I’ll be updating the screen captures over the next few days to get us back up to date. <3

“The Lost Boys” Had an Alternate Ending?

Long before the MCU made mid- and post-credits sequences the norm, Joel Schumacher’s comedy horror The Lost Boys planned to have one.

The 1987 vampire movie starring Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric was originally intended to have an additional sting that would add a cheeky bonus for the audiences. What’s more, at one point this planned sting was actually going to be the end of the movie.

A new book giving an in depth retrospective on the movie – Lost in the Shadows: The Story of The Lost Boys by Paul Davis – reveals that this was one of several major changes.

Davis explains:

“The screenplay for LOST BOYS (its original title – the ‘The’ was added in marketing), went through a magnitude of changes between the April 1986 ‘green light’ draft and the May 27th shooting draft. Alex Winter’s vampire, Marko, originally joined the rest of the boys in the siege on Grandpa’s house (only to be killed by Corey Haim’s character Sam, by stuffing garlic into his mouth), and Star was originally going to kill David (Kiefer Sutherland).

“Even once they made the changes in the shooting draft, Joel Schumacher admitted to me that both he, and screenwriter Jeff Boam, felt they didn’t have a satisfactory ending to the movie, and were scrambling to come up with something better during production. For example, in no draft of the script does Michael (Jason Patric) turn into a vampire – something that Patric was not thrilled about when informed three quarters of the way through that he would be hitting the make-up chair.

New TV spot for “Flatliners” features the returning Kiefer Sutherland

Last week we got a final trailer for Flatliners [watch it here], and now new TV spot has arrived online for the upcoming sci-fi thriller reboot/sequel which features a very brief look at Kiefer Sutherland in his returning role as Nelson Wright; check it out below…

“I play a professor at the medical university,” Sutherland told Metro. “It is never stated but it will probably be very clearly understood that I’m the same character I was in the original Flatliners but that I have changed my name and I’ve done some things to move on from the experiments that we were doing in the original film. I loved making the first film and when I was asked if I would be interested in taking part in this, it didn’t take more than a minute to say yes.”

In Flatliners, five medical students, obsessed by the mystery of what lies beyond the confines of life, embark on a daring and dangerous experiment: by stopping their hearts for short periods of time, each triggers a near-death experience – giving them a firsthand account of the afterlife. But as their experiments become increasingly dangerous, they are each haunted by the sins of their pasts, brought on by the paranormal consequences of trespassing to the other side.

Flatliners is set for release on September 29th
