Quantico & Fresh Off The Boat - Renewed by ABC



ABC is firming up its lineup for the 2016-17 season.

The network has renewed Once Upon a Time, Fresh Off the Boat and Quantico, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Produced from outside studio 20th Century Fox Television, Fresh Off the Boat's third season renewal for the 1990s Asian-American family comedy should be seen as a vote of confidence from new network head Channing Dungey. The drama executive has made diversity a top priority and the renewal for the bubble comedy produced by an outside studio is a key sign that she's open to allowing time for series to find their creative legs. The critical darling is currently part of ABC's Tuesday night comedy and has had an uphill battle with low-rated The Muppets revival as a lead-in. The series, picked up for a 13-episode sophomore season, received a back-nine pickup after the Nahnatchka Khan-produced comedy built on its freshman ratings.

Although one of ABC's few freshman drama hits, Quantico has also proven to be one of the biggest network breakouts of the season. In addition to ranking as Sunday's top scripted series among adults 18-49, the FBI thriller enjoys impressive double-digit gains when DVR is factored in. (The show's winter finale jumped 100 percent in live-plus-seven numbers.) Produced in-house and by Grey's Anatomy exec producer Mark Gordon, Quantico has also been a point of pride for ABC in its continued to efforts to diversify with Bollywood veteran turned small star screen Priyanka Chopra.
