ABC network has decided to drop Priyanka Chopra-starrer Quantico at the end of its third season putting an end to the future of the series without any scope for further extension.
Quantico features Priyanka Chopra as an FBI recruit framed for a bombing attack. The show’s current season, which premiered last month, will continue to air through mid-July, reported Variety.
Three episodes into its third season, Quantico is averaging a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demo and 2.3 million total viewers, according to Nielsen live-plus-same day numbers.
Though Quantico has been profitable for ABC, it was a difficult series to make logistically as production took place in Toronto, the writers room is in Los Angeles, and creator David Guggenheim is based in New York.
Apart from Quantico, ABC has also cancelled Designated Survivor, Zach Braff’s comedy series Alex, Inc, The Crossing, an acclaimed allegorical sci-fi drama series that’s only aired six episodes, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, and The Mayor. The network, however, renewed The Goldbergs, The Good Doctor, Grey’s Anatomy, Modern Family, Speechless and Roseanne.
Quantico series also stars Josh Hopkins, Jake McLaughlin, Aunjanue Ellis, Yasmine Al Massri, Johanna Braddy, Tate Ellington, Graham Rogers, Anabelle Acosta, Russell Tovey, Pearl Thusi, Blair Underwood, Marlee Matlin and Alan Powell.
