Designated Survivor: Season 2 - Preview

Designated Survivor Series 2

Preview by Jack Foley

THE inimitable Kiefer Sutherland returns as the all-powerful, accidental Commander-in-Chief, Tom Kirkman, for the enthralling Second Season of the award-winning hit series Designated Survivor, from renowned US network ABC.

Designated Survivor: The Complete Second Season is set to arrive on DVD as a bumper six-disc Box Set thanks to eOne.

Following on from the thrilling first season – where lower-level cabinet minister and ‘Designated Survivor’ Tom Kirkman (Sutherland – 24), is suddenly appointed President of the United States, when a devastating attack on the US Capitol wipes out most of the government – we join the new leader one year into his presidency.

With the support of his devoted wife First Lady Alex Kirkman (Natascha McElhone – Californication), President Kirkman is starting to find his feet as the most powerful man in the world.

The terrorists who took down the Capitol are still at large and the President will stop at nothing to bring justice to the people they killed, even if it means making personal sacrifices.

The POTUS must navigate the running of the country and the daily flow of crises inside the West Wing, from aeroplane hijackers and border disputes to negotiations with infamous warlords and virus outbreaks, with the help of his loyal staff.

These are played by stellar returning cast including Adan Canto (Narcos), Italia Ricci (Supergirl), Kal Penn (How I Met Your Mother) and Maggie Q (Nikita), who are joined by two new series regulars Paolo Costanzo (40 Days and 40 Nights) as Political Director Lyor
Boone and Zoe McLellan (Dirty, Sexy Money), as White House Counsel Kendra Daynes.

This riveting series also features appearances from Hollywood favourite Michael J. Fox and 24 star Kim Raver as multi-episode guest stars and arrives on DVD, including all 22 gripping episodes and a host of brand new special features on October 1, 2018.
