There’s a new trailer for the Designated Survivor series finale and there’s no way to avoid saying it: it looks like 24. There’s Kiefer Sutherland doing his Jack Bauer whispering voice, loads of armed men breaching a building. And. Plenty. Of. Clocks.
Seriously, there’s a lot of ticking. But what for? US viewers will find out in the season one finale this Wednesday 17 May, with the show arriving in the UK on Netflix the day after on Thursday 18 May.
The show, which began by killing the president and everyone in the presidential line of succession, except for Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Tom Kirkman (Kiefer Sutherland), has been a sure-fire hit in the US and has picked up a healthy following in the UK too.
Haven’t caught the series yet? Binge watch the whole thing on Netflix right now before the season finale.
