April 28 (UPI) -- Season 3 of the political thriller Designated Survivor will begin streaming on Netflix on June 7.
The first two seasons of the Kiefer Sutherland-led show originated on ABC and later streamed on Netflix.
The series followed Sutherland's Tom Kirkman character, a low-level bureaucrat who suddenly becomes President of the United States after a terror attack kills everyone in the Capitol building during the State of the Union address.
Netflix picked up the show in September after ABC canceled it.
"The 3rd season of Designated Survivor sees President Kirkman face a political reality... campaigning. What does it take to make a leader? What price will he be willing to pay? This season will explore today's world of campaigning, smear tactics, debates, campaign finance and 'fake news.' Democracy, as we know it, will hang in the balance," a press release said.
Returning to the show are Adan Canto as Aaron Shore, Italia Ricci as Emily Rhodes, Kal Penn as Seth Wright and Maggie Q as Hannah Wells.
