Quantico Season 3: In less than 24 hours of airing of the last episode of the Quantico Season 2, the premium cabler ABC has renewed the series for a third season. ABC has ordered 13 episodes for Priyanka Chopra’s espionage drama series, which will have a new showrunner when it returns as the creator and executive producer Josh Safra has stepped down from its role.
Josh Safra will be part of the third season as a consultant and the hunt for a new showrunner has begun. Last week, ABC announced a bunch of renewals, cancellations and new series, but the demand for the Quantico has made them to go for the renewal. The Quantico Season 2 received an average of 2.8 million views, which is 36% less than that of the first season and also averaged 0.7% rating (excluding last episode), down 45% of from the previous season.
As the series cast an international star Priyanka Chopra as the lead, who has millions of followers on her social network, it could have helped ABC Studios for the season 3 reboot as it is one of their best selling series globally. And, of course, she is a worldwide popular actress, and will be seen next in Hollywood movie Baywatch. With the release of the movie, she could garner international attention as well.
Priyanka Chopra’s Quantico Season 3 will debut early in 2018.
