ABC canceled the political drama in May, but Netflix announced last month it had picked it up for a third season.

Kirkman was the fictional secretary of housing and urban development who became president when a terrorist attacked Washington, D.C., during the State of the Union address, killing everyone ahead of him in the line of succession.

Season 2 co-starred Kal Penn, Adan Canto, Italia Ricci, Maggie Q, Kim Raver, Michael J. Fox and Breckin Meyer.

Penn has said he will be back for Season 3.
