ABC is already shuffling up its fall schedule.

New biblical drama Of Kings and Prophets has been pulled from the fall schedule, EW has confirmed. Initially slated to air on Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. ET, Quantico has now been shifted to Prophets’ timeslot on Sunday nights at 10 p.m. ET. There’s no word yet on what will replace Quantico Tuesday nights.

Of Kings and Prophets is an epic Biblical saga of faith, ambition and betrayal as told through the eyes of a battle-weary king, a powerful and resentful prophet, and a resourceful young shepherd on a collision course with destiny. The series was written by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage and executive-produced by Jason Reed, Reza Aslan and Mahyad Tousi. According to Deadline, the ambitious series will undergo a number of recastings and be held for a later premiere date.

Quantico, meanwhile, stars Bollywood actress and soon-to-be American breakout Priyanka Chopra. Considered one of the development season’s most promising new titles, it tells the story of a diverse group of recruits who have arrived at the FBI Quantico Base for training. They are the best, the brightest and the most vetted, so it seems impossible that one of them is suspected of masterminding the biggest attack on New York City since 9/11. Josh Safran will write and executive-produce with Mark Gordon and Nick Pepper.
