ABC Picks Up New Series ‘Quantico’ For Full Season


The second new TV series to land a full season order for Fall 2015 TV run is “Quantico” from ABC.

According to reports, the show received an additional 6-episode from the original 13-episode and there’s a strong possibility ABC will expand this to three more episodes come mid-season.

“Quantico” stars Bollywood superstar as Priyanka Chopra, a promising FBI agent who becomes one of the primary suspects in a terrorist attack in New York. While professing her innocence, she must find the real perpetrators and she does not need to look too far. Based on what she was able to gather from the authorities, whoever was behind the attack has been her classmate during her FBI training at Quantico. But in order to find out who the terrorists were, she has to be on the run and make sure that the FBI doesn’t catch her until she has proof.

“Quantico” is the number one program in the Sunday time slot for the age 18-49 demographic, according to Deadline, and it has been improving on its numbers as the episodes move along. The series also stars Josh Hopkins, Aunjanue Ellis, Jake McLaughlin, Tate Ellington, Johanna Braddy, Graham Rogers, Yasmine Al Massri and Anabelle Acosta.

“Quantico” is produced by Joshua Safran, Mark Gordon, Nicholas Pepper, Jake Coburn and Robert Sertner and airs 10 p.m. Sunday nights on ABC.
