When it premiered, Quantico was a big hit for ABC. However, the show’s ratings have dwindled since its debut. What do you think? Should the network cancel or renew Quantico for a third season?
The drama series follows Alex Parrish (Priyanka Chopra), a former FBI agent who now works for the CIA. The cast also includes Jake McLaughlin, Aunjanue Ellis, Yasmine Al Massri, Johanna Braddy, Russell Tovey, and Blair Underwood.
Recently, showrunner Josh Safran revealed he’s not counting on the ratings when it comes to Quantico‘s chances for a renewal. Regardless, ratings for season two have been low. Currently, the season is averaging a 0.72 rating in the 18-49 demo and only 2.83 million viewers, making it one of ABC‘s lowest-rated series for the 2016-2017 season.
However, Quantico may still return for a third season. Word is that the show is still profitable for ABC. It’s produced in-house by ABC Studios and makes money via streaming and international deals. On the latter front, it doesn’t hurt that Chopra is a global star.
