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.
ABC today cancelled Quantico after three seasons on the air. The sad news, which comes just three episodes into the drama's third-season run, is not much of a surprise considering its recent struggles in the ratings.
The hour-long series premiered in 2015 as one of the year's most-promising debuts, quickly becoming the #1 broadcast series on Sunday nights in the adults 18-49 demographic. Its early buzz quieted down somewhat by the end of Season 1, but its numbers still warranted a sophomore pickup. Season 2 saw its viewership slip further, and a move from Sundays to Mondays did little to change its fortunes. With Season 3 now hitting series lows, it makes sense that a fourth season would not be in the cards.
