Designated Survivor has not been renewed for Season 4 as of now. With a massive victory on its all seasons, Netflix on July 2019 declared that the series has been canceled.
Though there are many mysteries which must be looked upon, any confirmation about it is yet to be made. The ongoing pandemic has shut down all activities so, it is unlikely to be dropping anytime soon.
If season 4 is expected to do rounds, we might as well discuss it’s expected plot. The last episode of Designated Survivor culminated with Tom Kirkman being all stressed out and confused. He is shown with his therapist to overcome this. He is also shown struggling with making some changes. So it’s next season could proceed with answering as to what happens next.
Although there is a very little chance of this show appearing on the big screen again, waiting patiently is all we can do for now.
