ABC’s terrorism drama Quantico will not see a fourth season. The network has opted to cancel the series starring Priyanka Chopra. Its Season 3 finale will now serve as the series ender.
Quantico, from ABC Studios and producer Mark Gordon, was a breakout when it debuted in 2015, setting delayed viewing lift records. But with its dense narrative and heavy serialisation, the series started to lose momentum in the second half of its first season and continued to see declines through season 2 and into season 3.
It came down-to-the-wire last May for the drama series when it scored a last-minute abbreviated season 3 renewal with a reduced license fee and new creative under a new showrunner.
Created by Joshua Safran, the show starred Priyanka as Alex Parrish — an FBI recruit who joins the agency after graduating from the FBI Academy and becomes a prime suspect of a terrorist attack on Grand Central Terminal.Season three saw Alex going back to navigating the dangerous waters of the CIA that she left behind when she retired to Italy. The Indian starlet got global acclaim after the show and also won two People‘s Choice Awards for her role.
But while not great news, the star has something special to look forward to as Chopra is expected to attend her close friend Meghan Markle‘s May 19 wedding to Prince Harry.
