Designated Survivor Season 4 Expected Plot
If you have watched the previous season of the series, you must have known that the election was being won by President Kirkman and hence he keeps fighting for the next 4 years in the office.
He intentionally preferred to hide information that would have served as evidence to prove Moss not guilty for the bio-attack attempts.
So, if season 4 ever happens, we may expect to see something in relation to indictment obviously.
Season 3 of #DesignatedSurvivor was fabulous and it perfectly set up a fourth season, but Season 4 should probably be its last.

Other than that, we anticipated that Lorraine would be sent to prison since she was involved in an unlawful hacking scam and Emily could also have headed with her.
Of course, we are well aware that her hands are surely not clean after learning the truth that she broke some really essential and confidential information across the campaign.
Although, she is undergoing a difficult and traumatic phase of her life following the death of her mother.
On the other hand, we also anticipated seeing the relationship between Saron Shores and Isabella going through some tensions in the fourth season following when it was disclosed that she is expecting a child now.
A good thing that might have happened with Kal Penn’s Seth, who would probably get involved with the mother of his sperm donor child.
Well, that’s all we know. We will keep you updated with all the latest information until then stay tuned to our website.
