Priyanka Chopra has become the one of the biggest stars of Bollywood especially ever since she bagged the lead role in American drama thriller series Quantico in September 2015. That was Priyanka’s biggest step in Hollywood and her performance helped her gather fans from various parts of the world. She is one of those few Indian actresses who tried their hands on the small screen abroad. Quantico gave her the fame as Alex Parrish, an FBI agent, who strives to prove herself innocent after she becomes the main suspect of terrorist attack in the plot of the series. The first season started off with a bang and also ended well, making people crave for the second season. The much awaited second season started good, that featured on Sundays. But now the makers have to shift that slot to Monday and the reason is totally unexpected!
The Quantico-2 started with a promise of extra thrill and chase in its episodes. Priyanka Chopra looked stunning as never before as the show started. However despite all these highlights of the second season , the show has not been able to garner enough views as it was expected. The shows abroad have limited episodes and thus it becomes mandatory for them to keep check upon the viewership and TRP aspects. According to Bollywoodlife.com, a leading Hollywood website reported that the ABC shifted its slot from Sunday nights to Monday nights in order to get more viewership and hike its ratings.
The same website further reported that the changes will be enacted after the January 23. The makers of the show took Twitter to inform their fans about their new slots. They wrote, “We will see your faces on Monday nights at 10 pm starting January 23rd. New night. More intense than ever. #quantico”. Now it was also reported that the show did not score more than 1.0 ratings in their said Live+Same Day ratings. Also, the most crucial big mid season finale episode failed to take the ratings above 0.7. (ALSO READ: 7 times Priyanka Chopra set international magazine covers on fire!)
Now with the new timing, the makers are planning to make it more exciting. The show will now have new competitors in the form of Timeless and Scorpion. There is also this good will about Priyanka Chopra that the show is still going on well among the fans because of her in the lead role. PeeCee has always proved to be the superwoman of the tinsel town and now she is also helping the show to keep its pace intact. We hope that the new slot and the extra chilling story line will help them stockpile more fans.
