ABC's 'Quantico' Lands Full Season Order

ABC has handed out a full-season pickup for its original drama series Quantico starring Priyanka Chopra. The order is for six additional episodes instead of the traditional back nine pickup - due to the network's busy midseason roster. That brings the season's total episode count to 19.

Created by Josh Safran, Quantico ranks as Sunday's top scripted broadcast program among the Adults 18-49 demographic. The series has also posted big gains when in factoring in DVR usage across both three and seven days.

The drama also stars Josh Hopkins, Jake McLaughlin, Aunjanue Ellis, Yasmine Al Massri, Johanna Braddy, Tate Ellington, Graham Rogers and Anabelle Acosta.

Additional executive producers are Mark Gordon, Robert Sertner, Nicholas Pepper and Jake Coburn. ABC Studios and The Mark Gordon Company produce.

Quantico is only the second new broadcast network show this fall to have more episodes ordered - following NBC's Blindspot.
