Designated Survivor Stung by the Novel Coronavirus bug
The fourth season of the record-breaking series might never take-off the runway, all thanks to coronavirus.
Yes, it’s true. Even the dim chances that there were for Designated Survivor Season 4, have been ruled out due to the multiple shutdowns across sectors and verticals.
Hence, at a time, where the global economy is facing a slowdown, it won’t be a brilliant idea to announce Designated Season 4’s renewal. Therefore, you can put that thought to snooze for a while.
Even though the chances were dim of a fourth season to come, an online petition was filed by several fans.
The petition urges to the makers that the show must go on as the story was every bit of fascinating, gravitating and enrapturing.
Fans claim that there is no show like the Designated Survivor ever made on the television before. Thus, insisting the writers pen the fourth one.

Prior to Season 4 of Designated Survivor’s being struck, there were other shows as well whose next seasons were ruled out due to the novel coronavirus.
Big-budget films like Mulan (Chinese Film) and James Bond: No Time To Die release dates have been put on hold for an indefinite time.
Other projects affected by the novel coronavirus is comedy series Grace and Frankie and Ryan Murphy’s film The Prom.
