ABC has given a full season order to new series Speechless and Designated Survivor.
Speechless is one of the better comedies that arrived this fall and it has definitely paired well with the Wednesday comedy lineup it’s on that features other great series like Black-ish and Modern Family.
Designated Survivor is Keifer Sutherland’s return to television after his Fox hit 24 ended a couple of years ago.
Both series have done well so far in the ratings with the second weeks on air of Speechless and Designated Survivor both slipping 10% and 18% respectively from their strong starts.
The series are the first new series pickups for ABC and the second for all the Broadcast networks. Speechless and Designated Survivor both air on Wednesdays and can be streamed on the ABC app and Hulu.
