Priyanka Chopra may have made her way to Hollywood with her music career but it is her lead role in ABC crime drama Quantico that got her massive recognition in the West. The show premiered a couple of years ago with a good response from the audience. Now, in its third season and with low ratings, ABC decided to pull the plug and cancelled the show earlier in May. With the 13th episode that aired in the US on August 3, the show finally came to an end as the episode served as the series finale.
Priyanka Chopra, who has been starring as agent Alex Parrish for last three years, bid goodbye to the show, cast and crew with a special message. She wrote, “As the season ends, I am saying goodbye to Alex Parrish. As you’ll see, her story will come full circle…and that is the best feeling as an actor. Bringing Alex to life has challenged me physically and emotionally, but even more significant it has (I hope) cracked the door open for female talent and women of color to play leading ladies.”
Priyanka shared a couple of pictures from the shooting of season 3 and thanked everyone for tuning in all these years. “Thank you for opening your homes and hearts to me every week! Thank you to the cast and crew of #Quantico for being such an amazing team to work with, for all the memories that I will cherish…memories of laughter, of learning new things, of making friends for life. It was a pleasure working with each and every one of you, and I look forward to crossing paths again!” she added.
Quantico starred Priyanka Chopra as Alex Parrish, Jake McLaughlin as Ryan Booth, Johanna Braddy as Shelby Wyatt, Russell Tovey as Harry Doyle, Alan Powell as Mike McQuigg, with Marlee Matlin as Jocelyn Turner and Blair Underwood as Owen Hall.
