The designated survivor is an American political thriller television series created by David Guggenheim. The show’s story spins around the life of the protagonist, Thomas Kirkman.
He was working at the post-Secretary of Housing and Urban development in the US cabinet. Due to certain tragic accidents in the Us Cabinet, he became the President of the United States of America.
The above happened because everybody, who was in the presidential line of succession and above him in the rank in the cabinet got killed. He became the president and was called “Designated Survivor”.
The show revealed how he handled the responsibility as president and solved the mystery of the attack on the White House.
Season 1 of the show was aired in 2016 on ABC Network. This show has 3 seasons until now and is streaming on Netflix to watch.

Why Designated Survivor’s season 4 got canceled?
ABC network dropped the show after season 2 but seeing the popularity of the show Netflix picked the show for another season. But what happened now? why season 4 got canceled?
Well, rumors are there that viewership of the show was continuously declining. The streaming service of Netflix observes the viewership of the show and accordingly, the shows are renewed. Perhaps the less viewership is the reason to cast off the show.
From other sources, we also got to know shortly before the cancellation of the show, Sutherland said in an interview on Scala Radio that he was not hoping the show to be returned the actors had complicated contracts with Netflix and the contracts were very different from the television network.
Netflix did not book lots of actors for the show and they undertook other shows. He also said that he thought season 4 would be difficult due to the above mentioned reason. Although Netflix has not said anything about the above statement of Sutherland. Probably the Netflix has canceled the show due to the unavailability of the actors.
