Quantico starring Priyanka Chopra, Bollywood’s biggest international icon, is cancelled after its third season, that is it won’t be renewed for a fourth season.
Quantico, from ABC Studios and producer Mark Gordon, proved to be a hit when it debuted in 2015, setting delayed viewing lift records. But with its dense narrative and heavy serialization, 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.
ABC gave it a last chance when the network finally announced the third season but with reduced license fee and new a creative direction under a new showrunner, Michael Seitzman.
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.
While the show got cancelled, Indian-American actor Kal Penn expressed his desire to work with Priyanka. He tweeted to her: “Hey Priyanka Chopra, let’s do a movie.”
Priyanka responded, “Done and done Kal Penn.”
