Netflix is in talks with international producer eOne about bringing the show into its fold, Deadline reports. The talks are very preliminary, but it does give hope to fans of the series who thought this week's Season 2 finale would be a series finale.
ABC canceled the series late last week as it prepped its new 2018-2019 fall TV schedule, citing low overnight ratings, behind-the-scenes turnover and its creative direction heading into the next season.
"Ultimately, we were less confident about the [show's] creative path forward than we were our other shows," ABC president Channing Dungey said on Tuesday.
While ratings were down in Season 2, the series still performed well in delayed viewing, something that is obviously of interest to Netflix. Netflix also owns the international streaming rights to the show, so it's very familiar with it.
Designated Survivor airs its Season 2 — and possibly series — finale on Wednesday, May 16 at 10/9c on ABC.
