Quantico to be Retooled as a Family Comedy

The Ratings Junkie Friday, March 31, 2017

Quantico started out promising in its first season in the tough Sunday at 10 time slot, but quickly lost more than half of that audience. To try to salvage it, it was moved behind The Bachelor, then retooled as a procedural, yet neither retools have caused it to rise in the ratings. Now one of the Big 4's lowest-rated shows, Quantico has one last chance as a family comedy.

Quantico will take a time jump of approximately 15 years, and will focus on Alex (People's Choice Award Winner Priyanka Chopra) and husband Ryan (Jake McLaughlin), deal with their kids. In fact, they have three kids: a moody 14-year-old, a normal, often-forgotten 11-year-old, and a quirky 8-year-old. Alex's father will also appear sporadically. Parenting has made Alex into an overbearing mother who comically cares about her children. 

If successful enough for a renewal, this retooled version of Quantico is being eyed for the post-Modern Family slot, assuming the latter comes back. Here are the ratings for Quantico this season:
