I have watched all 10 episodes of the first year series. This show is so full of suspense and and mystery that it leaves me and every one else who has watched wanting more of the show after each episode that it is hardly impossible to wait for a week to watch the next episode. This show ranks right up there with the shoe The West Wing, it could very easily be the continuation of that highly ranked thriller. I have kept all episodes on my TV, now I know why, can't wait till March to continue watching!!! Great plot and acting, president Kirkland is outstanding!!

I don't watch a lot of new shows. But saw this one and am hooked. Love it. Very scary but also very believable.


2017-01-05 22:07:06

Really like this show. I watched season one on hulu and was glued to the TV. I agree with reviews, best show in ages of this type.


2017-01-06 07:58:19

Waiting for Season two of Designator Survivor to get started. Awesome series and it deserves to continue. It is so suspenseful it keeps me on the edge of my couch.


2017-01-07 06:12:37

2017-01-08 20:18:20

this is a great series,to leave it with the gunshot and just fade to black is ridiculous! this is the first prime time show I've watched on ABC in Years and if it just disappears it'll be the Last time I do!

Art lady

2017-01-09 01:42:35

Love the characters, fabulous acting and wonderful suspense! Please don't leave us hanging for too long!! Really looking forward to March 2017 (only wish it was sooner!!)!


2017-01-09 05:43:49

Please renew Designated Survivor!! It's an awesome show!!


2017-01-09 18:12:13

I agree that this is the best program ABC has offered in years! The gunshot leaves every watcher on edge, and if it is not renewed, many who watch it will leave ABC. I'd give it a 10+ so far.


2017-01-11 20:53:54

Designated survivor is an AWESOME show. Please we need more seasons. We watch it every week with out fail.


2017-01-12 02:40:34

Excellent Series ! Gripping well acted and full of twists and turns. Cant wait for series 2


2017-01-12 22:11:19

I watched "Designated Survivor" from the beginning. I have loved it and hope it continues. Needs more advertising as many people missed its start up.


2017-01-13 22:06:40

Comment (at least 5 characters)...Please renew Designated Survivor indefinitely. It is a great, quality suspense drama that educated people can appreciate. There is way too much garbage on many of the network and cable channels. We need shows like this to survive and multiply !


2017-01-15 00:46:55

We love the show. We can't wait to see the next show.


2017-01-15 05:04:31

Love this show! Only thing worth watching Wednesday night. Match Game is awful. Sick of celebrities


2017-01-15 21:12:32

Love Designated Survivor - absolutely addictive and cannot wait for series 2. Please tell us when it is being released !


2017-01-17 16:48:31

cancel this and I am stuck with NOTHING to watch. This show is the best in ages. The only reason other than sports that I turn on the TV


2017-01-18 22:08:44

Looking forward to the season 2 of Designated survivor.


2017-01-19 04:05:48

Designated survivor one of the BEST shows I have watched in a very very long time. Always waiting for the next show with anticipation. Please tell me it's returning! !


2017-01-19 04:43:08

Fantastic show, my husband and I love this show. We are waiting for season 2 to begin.

Jo Ann Conard

2017-01-23 07:11:01

I watched every show of Designated Survivor. It is one of the best new television series in 2016. As I was checking when it would back in 2027. Please bring it back.

2017-01-23 20:45:59

Comment (at least 5 characters)...I'm disappointed having to wait so long for the next show to start.


2017-01-23 23:47:40

please bring season 2 designated survivor soooooooooooooooon


2017-01-24 03:07:14

Please renew Designated Survivor. It is a great shoe not like so many others that have violent stories. This is a man trying to pull his country together


2017-01-24 22:45:05

I love this show. The characters are well written and the cast is made up of many of my favorite actors as well as some new ones I am getting to know. I look forward to season two. Please renew Designated Survivor. My husband and I love watching this story as it unfolds.


2017-01-30 05:11:35

Just catching up on DVR on this terrific show. It has so much room for growth in content and the story premise is fascinating. Best not to go too over the top with things, since it doesn't need it. The premise is sufficient and this show is terrific! Please continue it!


2017-01-31 02:52:09

Turning into a soap opera. Sutherland speaks in a growley whisper. Underlings continually interrupt the president by tapping on the door, and immediately entering. Dialogue predictable and childish. Deteriorating rapidly in plot lines. Pity. It started out Promising.


2017-06-28 04:48:23

First of all-Grandma-that is Kiefer Sutherland's voice....low,raspy, and CLEARLY too SEXY for you! As for the show turning into a "soap opera" have you looked at the news lately? I think you've just got it mixed up with another show....maybe your granny glasses need changing.


2017-02-02 20:17:57

omg I love designated survivor best TV programme I've ever watched I would easily give this TV programme 5 stars

2017-02-03 06:24:14

Love it !!!!


2017-02-03 06:25:33

Love this series


2017-02-06 07:45:34

Quite possibly the best show on TV any station. Please continue with season 2. My husband and I find ourselves dreading the time running out on each episode very much the same as with 24. Please continue this show.


2017-02-08 22:51:21

At least we got a show that's interesting to follow and not to heavenly P.C


2017-02-10 00:13:18

Love this show it is amazing. Please bring it back. We need season


2017-02-10 01:18:31

Best show in a long time!!!


2017-02-10 23:48:41

Woow,,I Js can't believe I saw such a masterpiece of creativity and a possible reality..SEASON TWO DESIGNATED SURVIVOR..DREAM COME TRUE!!


2017-02-11 01:13:31

Love this show! I hope it will be renewed. I've watched season 1 like 3 times.


2017-02-15 10:05:59

This show is awesome. Please renew it!

Carmen Fernandez-Viñas Ferrer

2017-02-17 09:49:05

Please renew Designated Survivor. It's a fascinating series.


2017-02-18 04:36:11

Love this show! It's the best I've seen in years, so much better than what is currently being shown on ABC. Please renew! Looking forward to season 2.


2017-02-20 20:04:03

Bring back Designated Survivor. I can't wait all week just to see the next episode. Sutherland is at his best since "24"!

I was so interested in the show; please re-new the series, as I watched every episode and would like to know what's next


2017-02-26 21:17:22

2017-03-01 17:23:42

comment (at least 5 characters)... my husband and I love the show, cant wait for it to return from its Fall break


2017-03-05 00:51:53

This is a wonderful show and very pertinent to the times. Since Donald Trump has high jacked us it is refreshing to see what an intelligent, well- thought out presidency could look like. Let's let this program give us hope as hope, from my perspective, in the current political environment is rapidly declining. The cast and characters are well matched and the story line is realistic and riveting. This is my favorite new series and I have stopped watching others shows so that I don't miss a minute of Designated Survivor.


2017-03-09 07:18:31

Please make a season 2 of Designated survivor. The show is very good.


2017-03-16 10:38:21

I LOVE THIS SHOW!!!!!! It keeps you on the edge of your seat; each and every episode; please DO NOT CANCEL THIS SHOW!!!!!


2017-03-22 03:34:11

I watched all of season one of designated survivor and I am hooked! Can't wait for season two!!!!!


2017-03-23 03:15:44

Designated Survivor is an excellent written and acted drama based on fiction. Please renew this series for a second season. The writers still have so much to share with us. Yes...I'm a Kiefer Sutherland diehard fan. He had me at 24 first season, episode one, scene one. Thank you. Please email all of us with the thumbs up renewal! Cathy


2017-03-23 18:20:45



2017-05-01 15:52:05

Love-love-love Designated Survivor. Please put on dvd for purchase.


2017-05-08 05:52:30

I cannot believe there is ever the slightest doubt considering to continue "Designated Survivor!!" One of the best TV series, of this type, and the viewers are being asked if there should it should return?? Kiefer Sutherland is absolutely fabulous in this as he was in "24." A major mistake and huge disappointment not continuing with as many seasons as possible for this great show!!


2017-05-11 05:21:58

Wait no longer , renew the show now! I got glued to my TV all the season 1.great show..


2017-05-12 22:39:25

Designated Survivor was renewed by ABC on May 11.


2017-05-12 22:41:37

Designated Survivor was renewed by ABC for a second season on May 11 2017.

2017-05-18 20:42:02

Please, please give us Season 2. Designated Survivor is one of the best programs on tv, and Kiefer Sutherland is GREAT. I am so glad someone was smart enough to star him in this vehicle!!!


2017-06-01 03:30:33

I only watch 2 programs other than the news and this is without a doubt the best series in years. Please renew it for a second season. It's a five star in my book.


2017-06-07 02:16:17

Please quit with the liberal agenda that has crept into this terrific show. There are enough politics on FNC, MSNBC and CNN if that is what I want. I'll watch again next season but will likely stop if it continues to force a liberal agenda down my throat. I suggest you double your target audience by being more centrist.


2017-07-02 01:03:30

Fantastic show. Full of suspense and drama I could not wait to wait for the next episode. Brilliant casting, very believable characters and great scripts keeping you on the edge of your seats. Please please there must be a second series!!!!!!!

Nery Salcedo

2017-07-03 06:14:40

I can´t wait for Season 2, he was pretty good in 24 hours but Designated Survivor is excellent!!! This series tells us how should be a President to reach the admiration, respect, and become a real hero, for the world tired of war, hatred, hedonism and without a human sensitivity.


2017-07-25 02:17:07

was a great show till you now push a democrat agenda. totally spoiled it


2017-08-10 15:46:31

It would be terrible if Designated Survivor ended after Season 1. It is the best show I've seen - so refreshing after watching House of Cards.


2017-08-22 17:51:03

Please announce when Season 2 of Designated Survivor will begin! We are waiting, but so impatient, for it to come back on again. Such a tremendous program! Kiefer Sutherland is so perfect for the part as POTUS. Actually, the entire cast is great. Please hurry!


2017-09-04 17:28:10

Designated Survivor feels like the natural heir to The West Wing, another great show. The fan base for this show will just keep growing, considering our current political environment.


2017-09-05 01:00:42

Loved the show. The premise is likely to become a reality some day (sadly). Hope it is given another run. Really enjoyed the first episodes. Everyone should watch!!


2017-09-09 21:06:08

U guys rock...... I wish Mr Kirkland could run for presidency of US replacing Trump


2017-09-19 05:05:13

PLEASE renew Designated Survivor!!! It's the best show on television since 24! Kiefer Sutherland is so perfect in that part. I didn't miss 5 minutes of all the shows. Please don't disappoint us by not renewing it.


2017-09-19 13:41:52

I want to know when Designated Survivor season two is going to on Net-Flix..........NOW!!!!


2017-09-24 02:42:41

Trying to find out when Designated Survivor will return. We really love this show. Hope it does not get cancelled

Alfred Cyprian Chimtengenji

2017-10-06 16:56:52

Both season 24 and designated survivor are the best seasons and most interesting. they teach makes one to think. the main actor of these two seasons is great and knows how to act. big u and continue. proud of you.

2017-12-11 23:56:17

2017-12-14 19:08:01

noooooo!!!! you can't kill off Alex!!!! please say it isn't so!


2017-12-15 10:44:09

Excellent series! With so few good shows on it will suck to lose yet another promising series that I and my husband truly enjoy.


2019-01-28 07:25:25

We rented the first season and liked it very much. We were unable to rent season two and would like to see it. We were left hanging. Why are we unable to see season two? Apparently it was made but not released. Why was it canceled?
