ABC officially renewed the espionage drama, Quantico for season 3. And slowly, it is coming into focus, especially that the ‘Code Black” creator Michael Seitzman was tapped to act as the new executive producer and showrunner after Josh Safran stepped down from the series.

In a report by Deadline, the “Code Black” executive producer is already working on “Quantico” season 3, outlining the plot of the story and firming up the casts and characters returning to the series.

Who’s in and who’s out from the series?

While Josh Safran stepped down from his post as the showrunner and executive producer of the show, he will reportedly act as a consultant.

He told TV Line in an interview that he will not be with the show on a day-to-day level, but will make sure it stays what it is since he loves the show so much.

Moreover, show’s regular casts Priyanka Chopra, Johanna Braddy, Jake McLaughlin and Blair Underwood were reported to have confirmed their return to the series.

Yasmine Al Massri, who portrayed the role of twins FBI recruits Raina and Nimah, will be leaving the series. The 38-year-old actress announced her departure on her Instagram account on June 10. She wrote a caption along with a photo of her two characters, saying she thanked the fans for supporting and loving her characters.

Pearl Thusi, who portrayed the role of the type-A lawyer Dayana Mampasi, also confirmed her exit from the show right after Al Massri’s announcement of departure from “Quantico.” Moreover, both Aunjanue Ellis and Russel Tovey, are also not expected to be returning as full-time casts on the show.

According to a report by Deadline, the casting departures are due to changes in the creatives of the series.
