When will season 1 be on Netflix US?

As for the United States, it’s unclear as to whether you’re going to be getting the new season. If it is coming to Netflix US it’ll likely come to Netflix just before a second season which is expected to be around the same time as season 1. That means an August/September 2017 release date is likely.

Is Season 2 of Designated Survivor on Netflix?

Season 2 hasn’t been officially confirmed as of yet but would be highly unlikely not to be. Once again, Netflix in the regions above would pick up new episodes a day or so after it airs in the US and would likely be split up into two halves again. This means new episodes will likely come to Netflix starting in September 2017. As for the US, it’d follow the same release schedule as we mentioned above meaning a September 2018 release date would be likely.
