“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

More ‘Designated Survivor’ Season 2 Spoilers

With Kirkman (Kiefer Sutherland) becoming the President of the United States come “Designated Survivor” season 2, the show will also make quite the transition.

According to showrunner Keith Eisner, as Kirkman gets ready to be the leader of the country, the show will reflect this change in the character’s life.

The show is going in a new direction this year. We’re keeping what people loved last year and just adding to it. It’s much more West Wing-focused, with a lot more characters, with standalone White House A-stories every week.

Eisner teased that “Designated Survivor” season 2 will be all about how “an outsider becomes an insider.” Helping him that is White House Political Director Lyor Boone to be played by “Royal Pains” star Paulo Costanzo.

Lyor is a whiz kid that has the credentials and the skills to make Kirkman the man he needs to be for America. However, the President himself is not quick to trust him.

Eisner also promised that “Designated Survivor” season 2 will not waste time in tying loose ends in the Patrick Lloyd (Terry Serpico) storyline.

In fact, the second episode will provide a “thrilling conclusion” to it. However, he teased that whatever that comes out of it might have a lasting effect.

There will be a hangover, and there will be a thread we’re drawing through from the whole Patrick Lloyd story as well.

From the looks of it, “Designated Survivor” season 2 will give fans a breather, but the danger might not be eradicated permanently just yet.

Lloyd remains a free man by the end of the first season, but it looks like things will soon change for him. However, it does not look like it will be downhill for him all the way.

“Designated Survivor” season 2 will premiere Wednesday, Sept. 27, at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
