Summary and storyline
One of the newest additions to the line-up of ABC channel’s exciting and action packed shows, Quantico is a political thriller and drama television series that is currently airing on Sundays in the United States. The new drama series was developed and penned by Joshua Safran who had previously worked on such highly popular projects as Smash and Gossip Girl. A creative effort between The Mark Gordon Company and Random Acts Productions, the new drama was first released in the US on September 27, 2015.
The storyline focuses on a group of new recruits at the FBI training facility in Virginia. After a major terrorist attack in New York, one of the recruits, Alex Parrish, becomes the main suspect and she must do everything she can to prove her innocence while being on the run. At first, her former classmates are also after her, but they quickly figure out that she had been framed and team up to help find the real mastermind behind the bombing to clear Alex’s name and prevent another horrible attack. The plot is constructed from two parallel timelines – one shows the NATs in training, and the other depicts the aftermath of the attack. There is also a good amount of romance, to spice things up a little.
Ratings, reviews and possible renewal
Season 1 of Quantico premiered on the ABC channel in the US on Sunday, September 27, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT and initially it was set to consist of 13 episodes. However, on October 13, 2015, the channel ordered six additional episodes, bringing the season’s total to 19 episodes. The initial reviews have been rather positive and so far, after airing just four episodes, the show is averaging 6.3 million viewers, making it for now the highest-rated Sunday TV program. We think that there is a very good chance the show will get greenlit for another run.
UPDATED December 18, 2015: If you want to find out who is really responsible for the bombing, you will have to wait a little bit longer. Having aired its mid-season finale on December 13th, Quantico is expected to return to ABC with new episodes on Sunday, March 6, 2016. The reviews are good and the ratings are making the show the best-rated Sunday primetime broadcast, so it looks like the network has enough grounds to renew.
