Virginia Madsen Departs “Designated Survivor”

Virginia Madsen has revealed that she won’t be back for the upcoming second season of ABC’s political thriller series “Designated Survivor”.

Reasons for her departure are unclear but she revealed the news herself in a series of tweets which said: “Sorry I won’t be back for Season 2. I really enjoyed it- and the wonderful cast mates I got to work with. It was a great role. I was loving it.”

Madsen recurred on the first season as conservative Congresswoman Kimble Hookstraten who initially seemed to start out as something of an antagonist but ended up becoming one of the more interesting wild card characters in the Kiefer Sutherland-led drama.
