Quantico: Season Three; Priyanka Chopra & Three Others to Return; New Showrunner Set”

Both shows are produced by ABC Television Studios, where Seitzman is now under an overall deal.

The big news of the day, however, is that Quantico finally has a new showrunner.

But the good news is that star Priyanka Chopra and her fellow original cast members Jake McLaughlin and Johanna Braddy, and Season 2 addition Blair Underwood, will all be returning for Season 3, Deadline said.

"Quantico" was picked up in May for a 13-episode Season 3 and does not now have a premiere date. Michael Seitzman, creator of Code Black, has signed on for Season 3, with Safran serving as a consultant and executive producer.

He takes over the role from Josh Safran, who left "Quantico" at the end of Season 2.

The news comes as a number of cast members are not returning, including Yasmine Al Massri and Pearl Thusi.

Thus far, ABC has confirmed that four series regulars will be returning for the third season.

Quantico's shake-up comes after the procedural scored a surprising third-season renewal, largely on the back of strong worldwide sales (thanks to Chopra's appeal) and a lucrative Netflix SVOD deal. Seitzman, whose Code Black has also been renewed for a third season over on CBS, will be taking the reins, ABC confirmed to EW Wednesday. It debuted in 2015 on a high note, but it started to decline in the second half of Season 1.

Quantico is set to return in January of 2018 on ABC.
