Quantico - Season 3 - Code Black's Michael Seitzman Tapped as Showrunner

Season 3 of Quantico is starting to come into focus. ABC’s terrorism drama, which clinched an eleventh-hour renewal last month, has tapped Code Black creator Michael Seitzman as new executive producer/showrunner, replacing creator Josh Safran who stepped down at the end of the second season. Seitzman already has been working on next season, outlining the storyline and firming up the returning cast. Four series regulars, star Priyanka Chopra, fellow original cast members Jake McLaughlin and Johanna Braddy as well as Season 2 addition Blair Underwood will be coming back.

The remaining two Season 2 series regulars, original cast member Aunjanue Ellis and Russell Tovey are not expected to return, at least not full-time.

Seitzman is taking on executive producer/showrunner duties for Quantico while also continuing in the same capacity on his CBS medical drama series Code Black. Both Quantico and Code Black have 13-episode midseason orders, which would allow Seitzman to easier juggle the shows, both from ABC Studios where he is under an overall deal.
