Quantico scores full season order from ABC
ABC has given freshman drama Quantico a full season order, EW has learned.
The series stars Priyanka Chopra as one of a diverse group of recruits who have arrived at the FBI Quantico Base for training — though one of their own will turn out to be a sleeper terrorist responsible for the most devastating terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11.
Quantico debuted last month to 7.1 million viewers and a 1.9 rating in the 18-49 demo. The drama, which hails from Joshua Safran, posts consistent gains when factoring in Live + Same Day + 7 Day numbers, averaging 12.2 million viewers and a 3.4 rating season to date.
Quantico is the second new series of the fall to nab a full season order after NBC picked up Blindspot last week. ABC has added six more episodes, instead of the traditional back nine order, but could potentially order three more.
Quantico airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
