The third season of 'Quantico' has finally come into focus. ABC's hit series taps "Code Black" creator Michael Seitzman as new creator, replacing Josh Safran who decided to step down at the end of the second season. Michael has already started working on 'Quantico' season 3, outlining its story and finalizing the cast. At least four series regulars — Priyanka Chopra, Jake McLaughlin, Johanna Braddy, Blair Underwood — are returning.

Alex Parrish is back

Fans were worried about losing the main character of the show, but it's confirmed that Alex Parrish is returning to the new episodes.

Priyanka Chopra is excited because she is reprising her role as Alex Parrish in 'Quantico' season 3. The actress will be joined by Jack McLaughlin and Johanna Braddy, who play Ryan Booth and Shelby Wyatt, respectively. You will be happy to know that Blair Underwood, who played Owen Hall in season 2, is reprising his character moving forward.

Who is not returning?

Pearl Thusi and Yasmine Al Massri's departures were announced days ago. The remaining two regulars of 'Quantico' season 2, Russell Tovey and Aunjanue Ellis, are not expected to return.

Production on the new episodes will continue in New York City, with the writers moving to Los Angeles where "Code Black" is also based. On June 22, it was reported that actress Yasmine Al Massri, who played twins Nimah and Raina, would not return to the new season. She announced her departure through social media, where she thanked fans for their support and love.

Showrunner Josh Safran confirmed his departure at the end of 'Quantico' season 2. It initially left a void, but Michael Seitzman officially took over the show so fans should not worry about the quality. Seitzman quickly got to work to finalize the story of the new season.

What's this TV show about?
