Both Designated Survivor and Tuca & Bertie have bid their goodbyes for new seasons on Netflix. And we may never see new seasons again unless they’re picked up by another platform. Read on to find out what Netflix said about these shows.
Designated Survivor: Was It Turning Into House Of Cards?
Designated Survivor starred Kiefer Sutherland as cabinet secretary who becomes President of the United States amidst a disaster. It started out as an ABC drama series but was canceled by the broadcaster after two seasons. In September 2018, Netflix revived the show for a Season 3 which released on July 2019 and did pretty well, especially in the UK.
Season 1 featured a conspiracy plot and Season 2 day-tp-day governing mishaps in 22 episodes each. Season 3 with just 10 episodes, became more political, following a reelection campaign and moral debates.
“We are proud to have offered fans a third season of Designated Survivor and will continue to carry all three seasons for years to come,” Netflix said in a statement. “We’re especially thankful to star and executive producer Kiefer Sutherland, who brought passion, dedication and an unforgettable performance as President Kirkman.” Netflix also thanked the rest of the crew for their hard work.
Tuca And Bertie– Animation 101
Tuca & Bertie is an animated series that launched its first season in May, starring main characters Tiffany Hadish and Ali Wong, a pair of 30-year-old bird-women as the main characters.
“Lisa Hanawalt created a relatable yet whimsical world in ‘Tuca & Bertie,’” Netflix said about this show. “We’re grateful to Lisa, and her fellow executive producers Raphael Bob-Waksberg, Noel Bright, Steven A. Cohen, and EPs/stars Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong, along with all of the writers and animators for sharing the funny and dynamic female bird duo of Tuca and Bertie with the world.
“While Tuca & Bertie won’t have a second season, we’re proud to feature this story on Netflix for years to come,” their statement read.
