Mumbai, March 4:
Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra’s international TV series “Quantico” has been renewed for a second season.
ABC handed out 15 renewals on Thursday, picking up dramas like “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Scandal”, “How to Get Away With Murder”, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”, “Once Upon a Time” and even “Quantico”, reports ew.com.
Comedies like “Modern Family”, “The Goldbergs”, “black-ish” and “Fresh Off the Boat”, and alternative shows like “America’s Funniest Home Videos”, “The Bachelor”, “Dancing With the Stars”, and “Shark Tank” have also been renewed.
After shining in the world of Hindi showbiz, Priyanka made headway abroad as a singer and even made her debut in the international TV fiction space with ABC action-thriller series “Quantico” last year. She received praise and global visibility.
Priyanka plays Alex Parrish, a rookie FBI recruit with a mysterious past in the season one, which will return from hiatus from March 12 on Star World.
According to showrunner Josh Safran, much like Alex being on the run gave us a drive for the first half of the season, Alex is tasked into doing something that she’ll be forced to do for the rest of the season.
The only shows that have not landed pickups and remain on the bubble are “The Muppets”, “Agent Carter”, “Castle”, “Nashville”, “Dr. Ken”, “Last Man Standing”, “Galavant”, critically acclaimed anthology series “American Crime”, plus all-but-dead freshman series “Wicked City” and “Blood and Oil”, which both had their episode orders trimmed earlier in their first runs.
