Fans of the FBI drama “Quantico” can take a breath from the cancellation rumors. It looks like season 3 is a possibility now that the show has seen a boost in ratings. ABC confirmed that the current season ratings have jumped from around 2.4 million to more than 3 million since the show returned at the end of March 2017.

Two timelines far too confusing

The two timeline storyline worked for “Quantico” season 1. While there were times that it made people concentrate a lot on the show, it wasn’t over the top or complicated. The two timelines worked together and gelled.

Unfortunately that couldn’t be said for the second season.

When the show returned, fans hoped to see the same level of intricacy and connection between the two timelines. However, it soon turned out that the plot with the AIC was far too over the top and started to get confusing in certain elements. This didn’t help with the introduction of other terrorists in the present day timeline, making it almost impossible to tell whose side everyone was on.

In the end, the showrunners changed things. After taking a month-long break, the show returned with just one timeline in the present day. More fans tuned in and hopes for “Quantico” season 3 were renewed.

Priyanka Chopra is signed on for another season

All that needs to happen now is the official confirmation for “Quantico” season 3. According to some sources, Priyanka Chopra has signed on for another year, despite rumors stating that she wanted to go into more Bollywood movies and TV shows. Fans worried that the show wouldn’t work without Agent Alex Parrish being around.

Fans may hear about “Quantico” season 3 in May. Nothing has yet been officially confirmed, but there are plenty of suggestions that the latest increase in viewers has pleased ABC. The network certainly seemed to want to help it survive by moving it from Sunday nights to Monday nights. ABC has only confirmed its Thursday night shows, including “Grey’s Anatomy” and “How to Get Away With Murder” so far.
