Along with Marlee, Season 3 will see some casting changes with Pearl Thusi and Yasmine Al Massri leaving the series. However, Priyanka Chopra is back as Alex Parrish, the protagonist of the show.

On May 16, it was reported that ABC had renewed the series for a third season. The 13-episode show will premiere on the network in 2019. As part of the renewal process, Joshua Safran will reportedly exit from his character as the primary showrunner but will remain as a consultant.

The first season received positive reviews, with most praising Chopra's performance. The “Baywatch” actress saw the deal as an opportunity to represent Asians in Hollywood. She was given all the twenty-six pilot scripts that ABC was doing for the first season and chose “Quantico” from them.

There is no information about whether Marlee Matlin is playing a leading role or a supporting character. However, we are even more excited to see Marlee Matlin and Priyanka Chopra on screen together.
