Designated Survivor, Tuca & Bertie and The Code Canceled

-

Netflix has canceled both Designated Survivor and Tuca & Bertie today, while CBS gave the pink slip to The Code yesterday.

Designated Survivor was picked up for a third season following its cancellation by ABC. The new season launch on the streaming service on June 7th, but there won’t be a fourth season of the series starring Kiefer Sutherland. Seasons 1 and 2 are also available to stream exclusively on Netflix in the U.S. and Canada.

“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. “We’re especially thankful to star and executive producer Kiefer Sutherland, who brought passion, dedication and an unforgettable performance as President Kirkman. We’re also grateful to showrunner/executive producer Neal Bear for his guiding vision and steady hand, creator/executive producer David Guggenheim and EPs Mark Gordon, Suzan Bymel, Simon Kinberg, Aditya Sood and Peter Noah along with the cast and crew who crafted a compelling and satisfying final season.”

Netflix also said there won’t be a second season of Lisa Hanawalt’s animated comedy series Tuca & Bertie, which debuted on May 3rd and features the voices of Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong. The series, from the minds behind BoJack Horseman, is about the friendship between two 30-year-old bird women who live in the same apartment building.

“Lisa Hanawalt created a relatable yet whimsical world in Tuca & Bertie,” Netflix said in a statement. “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.”
