A diverse group of recruits has 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.
There is some good news to announce for Quantico fans this evening, as ABC has renewed the drama for a third season. The show was sitting firmly on the bubble as of late due to its ratings taking a hit during its sophomore run.
Season 3 will come with a couple of changes in the form of a new showrunner as well a lowered episode count. Creator Josh Safran will be stepping away from the series going forward, with a replacement at the helm to be named at a later date. He will reportedly still be available as a consultant.
As for the number of episodes, ABC has ordered 13 for 2017-2018, down from the 22 the show received in Seasons 1 and 2.
Still, the series will be back for at least one more season with a likely premiere in the fall.
