This season, ABC has been airing two new Sunday night TV series with very different results. Blood & Oil has seen its episode order reduced and has essentially already been cancelled. Meanwhile, Quantico has done well in the ratings and the network ended up ordering six more episodes. It turns out, there’s even better news for fans of Quantico.
A thriller series, Quantico follows bright new recruits at the Federal Bureau of Investigations Virginia training academy. After the biggest terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11 occurs, an anonymous tip leads to a top recruit (Priyanka Chopra) and she must go rogue to prove her innocence. The rest of the cast includes Jake McLaughlin, Aunjanue Ellis, Yasmine Al Masri, Johanna Braddy, Tate Ellington, Graham Rogers, Anabelle Acosta, and Josh Hopkins.
According to Deadline, ABC increased their additional episode order to seven and later, the network ordered two more. This brings Quantico’s first season order up to 22 episodes.
What do you think? Do you like the Quantico series? Do you think that ABC should order even more episodes or should the cast and crew focus on making those that have been ordered stronger episodes?
