The news today from ABC doesn’t really come as a surprise to those who follow their freshman series.
The network announced today that it had ordered six more episodes of its hot new drama Quantico to give the series a full season order.
Normally, a network would pick up nine episodes or the “back-nine” to give a full season order. According to site TVWise, the six episode order was to make way for the busy midseason schedule.
Quantico was a hit for ABC right out of the gate. The series is averaging a 1.8 in the 18-49 demo and almost 7 million viewers each week in live+same day numbers.
Quantico is led by international star Priyanka Chopra and follows a group of FBI recruits who fight and claw their way through the difficult training at Quantico,Virginia. In a flash forward, we find out that one of the recruits is believed to be behind a terrorist attack on New York.
You can catch brand new episodes of Quantico every Sunday night at 10/9c only on ABC.
