The synopsis for Season 3 is as follows:
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.” Democracy, as we know it, will hang in the balance.
All 10 episodes of Season 3 of Designated Survivor will hit Netflix on Friday, June 7, 2018. All episodes of seasons 1 and 2 are currently available on Netflix if you’d like to catch up.
