Kiefer Sutherland plays Kirkman, the fictional secretary of housing and urban development who became president of the United States when a terrorist attacked Washington, D.C., during the State of the Union address, killing everyone ahead of him in the line of succession.
A Canadian entertainment distribution company is reportedly interested.
"I am so excited that we can finally talk about this! Season 3 baby! Thank you to all the fans. We love you guys," Penn tweeted after the renewal news broke.
"My mom is gonna be so relieved that I have a job for another few months," Penn added.
