Designated Survivor: The Complete Second Season

If you have missed the second series of Designated Survivor on Netflix or just want to own all 22 episodes of series 2 on DVD, it is now available, including a whole bunch of special features thanks to eOne. We enjoyed the first series immensely and don’t have Netflix, so we have been binge watching the box set and heartily recommend it to those of you who like political thrillers.

Kiefer Sutherland returns as the accidental US president Tom Kirkman in the second series of the award-winning Designated Survivor from renowned US network ABC.

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

President Kirkman is starting to get used to being the most powerful man in the world, helped by the support of his wife First Lady Alex Kirkman (Natascha McElhone – Californication) and the rest of his family. But the terrorists who took down the Capitol are still at large, and the President is determined to bring those responsible to justice, even if it means making personal sacrifices.

The second series throws all sorts of crisis at the Commander-in-Chief, both domestic and non-domestic. He must deal with airplane hijackers and border disputes, negotiations with infamous warlords and virus outbreaks. Right by his side is his loyal staff, played by a stellar returning cast which includes Adan Canto – (Narcos), Italia Ricci (Supergirl), Kal Penn (How I Met Your Mother) and Maggie Q (Nikita), joining the new series as regulars are Paolo Costanzo (40 Days and 40 Nights), as Political Director Lyor Boone and Zoe McLellan (Dirty, Sexy Money), as White House Counsel Kendra Daynes.

It also features appearances from Hollywood favourite Michael J. Fox and 24 star Kim Raver as multi-episode guest stars.
