Quantico Renewed for Season 3 as Showrunner Josh Safran Steps Down

Quantico Recap SEason 2 Episode 3

Quantico is re-upping for another mission.

ABC has renewed the spy-centric thriller for Season 3, TVLine has learned.

In addition, executive producer Joshua Safran is stepping down as showrunner but will continue as a consultant on the drama. The move coincides with the end of his contract with the network.

“I will be consulting with the show moving forward, but I will not be with the show on a day-to-day level,” Safran tells TVLine. “I love the show, so I’ll be making sure it stays what it is.”

In Season 2, the Priyanka Chopra-drama has averaged 2.8 million viewers and a 0.7 rating, down 40 percent from its freshman average. A midseason move to Mondays-at-10 failed to give the show much of a boost.

Quantico‘s Season 2 finale airs Monday at 10/9c.
