Will ‘Quantico’ Be Renewed for a Season 3 on ABC?
“Quantico” came back on ABC for a second round on Sunday, September 25, 2016 at 10:00-11:00 PM EDT, and its debut has lost a half of the viewing audience, drawing mere 3.6 million viewers, as well as it has received a mixed reception by the viewers, once again. But yet, millions of fans are trying to learn, whether or not “Quantico” will return for Season 3 on ABC, and if so, when will its release date? There has been no official announcement of the renewal hitherto. But you can scroll down, in order to subscribe for our notifications, or get acquainted with our forecast on the subject.
Let’s take a look at the figures and facts in an attempt to count up the odds on renewal. First of all, let’s pay our attention to the viewership. The premiere of “Quantico” Season 2 has drawn 3.635 million viewers (-49.46% compared to last season’s premiere) with a 1.00 demo rating (-48.19%) among adults (18-49). For comparison, “Quantico” Season 1 averaged a 1.24 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 4.34 million total viewers. Actually, it’s very significant drop of the viewing audience. However, let’s take a look what ABC thinks about it: “‘Quantico’ premiere held even with its May finale in Adults 18-49 (1.0/3), which matched the show’s top rating since April – since 4/10/16.” But on the other hand, “Last season, “Quantico” saw its Live + SD rating jump +100% in Adults 18-49 (+1.3 rating) after 7 days of TV playback, making the ABC drama the No. 1 broadcast gainer of the 2015-16 season.” So, compared to last season’s premiere, those figures don’t look impressive.
As for the reception, according to IMDB, “Quantico” has a score of 7.2 out of 10 based on about 34,000 user votes, 172 reviews from viewers and 10 reviews from critics. Meanwhile, according to Metacritic, “Quantico” Season 2 has a score of 7.0 out of 10 based on 5 user ratings. At the same time, according to Rotten Tomatoes, the second season of the terrorism thriller has a score of 3.0 out of 5 and a 50% approval rating.
