All the 22 episodes of the show from the 2017-2018 season were available for streaming on the online video watching platform.
The eighth season of the show begins with the events following the shocking death of Linda Reagan. The source informed that the death plot was fitted into the show because the actress did not renew her contract.
Since the actress did not even return to shoot a death scene, the story was adjusted to show that she was killed in a helicopter crash offscreen.
Another report from ET Online suggested that Schlossberg is a student of law at Harvard. He wants to follow in the footsteps of his famous grandfather and make his family proud. According to Schlossberg, he has a lot to ‘figure out’ as he ‘makes his own way’ in the world.
He made his first TV appearance alongside his mother on the Today show. During the show, the duo discussed Schlossberg’s potential future in politics.
According to People, Schlossberg has always shown a keen interest in the family business and he considers family tradition to be of high importance. He has traveled to Japan in the past to visit his mother, who was the then U.S. Ambassador to the country.
The two of them toured and visited the damaged Fukushima nuclear plant and visited an orphanage as well.
Schlossberg got himself noticed first when he co-founded ReLightNY at the young age of 14. He then aimed to provide energy-efficient light bulbs to low-income housing developments.
He graduated from Yale University and has a degree in history. The actor is passionate about politics and is taking an active part in various philanthropic causes, following the famous footsteps of his grandfather and mother.
His grandfather, former President Kennedy, was famous for donating his presidential and legislative salaries to various charities.
Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963, while his motorcade was driving through Dallas, Texas. He was pronounced dead just half an hour after the attack.
