A TV cancellation hurts, but every once in a while, fans get to see their favorite show saved.
The "Designated Survivor" devoted were lucky enough to have just that happen. Netflix has officially picked up Season 3 after ABC pulled the plug in May, Deadline reports. There had been reports that the streamer might come through for fans, but for months, fans of the Kiefer Sutherland drama have been in limbo.
Needless to say, the fan base is pretty excited right now, as their tweets show.
With the show set to continue, Neal Bauer, who previously worked on "Law & Order: SVU," is taking over as showrunner; he was selected for the job before ABC opted not to go ahead with more episodes, and he'll now get to actually do it. His stars haven't changed; Sutherland, Kal Penn, Italia Ricci, and Adan Canto will all be back.
"Designated Survivor" Season 3 will premiere on Netflix in 2019.
