The network announced they will not be ordering new seasons of Designated Survivor and Quantico, ratings hits when they first premiered but slowly failed. The drama headlined by Priyanka will not return after its third season - already being telecast - runs its course. The current season, however, will continue to air till the 13 episode. It nearly got canceled past year, but received a last-minute order for a shorter third season. Though the show has been profitable, it was a hard series to make logistically as production took place in Toronto, the writers room is in Los Angeles, and creator David Guggenheim is based in NY. Sutherland, who executive produced the series, is highly involved in the show's creative side and effectively does a pass on each script before it is finalized alongside Guggenheim.
The series has done well in worldwide sales but apparently, coupled with these very weak ratings, that revenue wasn't enough to get Quantico a fourth season renewal on ABC.
At present into its third season, the 35-year-old actress made her U.S. television debut in "Quantico", which first premiered in 2015. Its May 16 season finale will now also be its series finale.
Chopra's overseas popularity, however, made it a strong performer in global sales.
"Quantico", produced by ABC Studios and the Mark Gordon Company, starred Priyanka Chopra as a USA intelligence agent. The cast also includes Jake McLaughlin, Johanna Braddy, Russell Tovey, Alan Powell, Marlee Matlin, and Blair Underwood.
