Along with Baywatch, Priyanka Chopra is also gearing up for the second season of her popular ABC show, Quantico. The actor, who rose to international fame with her portrayal of FBI agent Alex Parrish in the show, says the new season will have more "manipulation, deception, attraction and action."
Talking about the response Quantico has generated in India, Priyanka said:
While the new season has started in the West from 6 March, the Indian audience can watch it from 12 March. The show will be telecast on Star World, Star World HD and Star World Premiere.
"I'm elated by the amazing response that Quantico has received by audiences across the globe and especially in India. With all new episodes starting on 12 March, we got some crazy new plot twists and new characters that will continue to keep you guessing! You will see manipulation, deception, attraction, action while trying to figure out the real traitor amongst us."
Priyanka plays Alex, an FBI recruit who becomes a suspect in a terrorist bombing in New York's Grand Central Station. The show's storytelling prism shifts between the present day with Parrish navigating her way through a class of FBI new agent trainees to the near future as the truth and repercussions of the attack emerge.
The winter finale ended on a frantic tempo as Alex's guilty plea forced her to surrender to the FBI for at least 24 hours before being taken to federal prison.
Speaking on the show's return, a Star India spokesperson said:
"The show has performed phenomenally well and is a testament to our commitment of bringing the best and latest international content to Indian viewers. We are certain the new episodes will garner just as much, if not more, excitement from audiences."
"Quantico is one of the most exciting shows in ABC Studio's portfolio and we are happy for the show to be back on Star's network. Priyanka has been fabulous in the show and here's wishing her a remarkable second innings." said Amrita Pandey, vice-president - studios, Disney India.
Priyanka's decision to venture into international TV fiction space with the show last year turned out well for her. She received rave reviews for her performance from the US audience and critics, and even won the Favourite Actress in a New TV series award at the People's Choice Awards (PCA) 2016.
