Designated Survivor Season 2 Netflix Release Schedule

Designated Survivor season 2 will be coming to Netflix exclusively on a weekly basis on all Netflix regions with the exception of the USA and Canada. Episodes will come to Netflix shortly after they air in the US on ABC.

The ABC series starring Kiefer Sunderland depicts a possible scenario where the designated survivor is brought to fruition when an explosion at the state of the union kills all of the administration. A wide ranging conspiracy then fills the remainder of the show while America tries to repair from the inflicted wounds. The first season was tense throughout and had a great cast as well as impressive White House sets.

The first season of Designated Survivor was announced to be a Netflix Original shortly before the season started airing everywhere with the exception of the USA and Canada.

When will Part 2 of Season 2 be on Netflix (Episode 11+)?

As you may notice in the table above, we only currently have release dates for episodes one through ten. That’s because ABC almost always splits up their series into two halves. The first ten episodes will air before Christmas and then part 2 of season 2 or episode eleven onwards will be available likely sometime in March 2018 onwards. We’ll update this post once we know the specifics.


What about the United States and Canada?

As of the time of writing, neither the United States or Canada are included in this deal nor do they receive seasons later on in full. In the US, Hulu looks like they currently hold the rights to exclusively stream Designated Survivor.
