Hello Folks

ABC has finally made a decision on "Quantico".

The show, which aired its season finale last night, has been picked up for a third season, which will consist of only 13 episodes.

Creator Josh Safran will exit the show, the search for a new showrunner is underway.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the renewal comes thanks to a Netflix streaming deal for "Quantico", as well as a shift towards politics and a license fee cut. Also, star Priyanka Chopra has international appeal, which helps with selling the show abroad.

Ugh.  Why?

Well, you answered why, but the initial concept seemed rather limited to me, and the whole idea of continuing to work for an organization that would put trainees through that kind of hazing just is off-putting.  Not to mention if would lose any sympathy for such characters I they did chose to stay with the FBI.

But then, my tastes have generally been eccentric to that of the regular viewing audience.

Let me strive every moment of my life to make myself better and better, to the best of my ability, so that all may profit by it.
Let me think of the right and lend my assistance to all who may need it, with no regard for anything but justice.
Let me take what comes with a smile, without loss of courage.
Let me be considerate of my country, of my fellow citizens, and my associates in everything I say and do.
Let me do right to all, and wrong no man.

This makes me happy. I haven't watched the season finale yet so I don't know how the show has ended but I do have to say that the show has improved a lot in the second season. Once they hit the mid season mark they shifted gears and dropped the flashbacks and put the show on a new course and it was the best move they could have made.

I think a shorter season will benefit the show because both seasons did feel like there were moments were the show was spinning its wheels because they didn't have enough story to cover 22 episodes.
