ABC Apologizes for ‘Quantico’ Episode

"Priyanka Chopra, who is now seen in ABC Studios" crime drama Quantico, recently, came under fire over an episode. In the recently-aired episode of Quantico, Priyanka, 35, who plays Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Alex Parrish, plots a nuclear attack in Manhattan to frame Pakistan for it, just days before an Indo-Pak summit is to be held. The statement read that Priyanka Chopra had nothing to do with the plot of the episode.

ABC is offering a mea culpa for a storyline in Quantico's June 1 episode.

U.S. television studio ABC has issued an apology after a recent episode of Priyanka Chopra's American drama series Quantico sparked an online outrage for the actress, reports news agency ANI.

Now a week after the controversy, ABC Studio, the makers of Quantico, has released an official statement apologising for hurting sentiments of Indians and stated that it was a work of fiction and nothing else. "It was certainly not our intention to offend anyone", the statement read further. For the show, she had won People's Choice Award for two consecutive years.

The episode's plot centered on a physics professor at a USA university who steals weaponized uranium in a plot detonate a bomb in NY.

Quantico will not be getting a fourth season. But, it seems like the shift in the day from Sunday to Thursday and revamp of the show did not work. While the show hasn't been big on live + same day viewing, Quantico has done well in delayed viewing with a solid worldwide seller for the ABC studios thanks to Priyanka Chopra's massive following.

Produced by ABC Studios and now in its third season, "Quantico" was canceled in May. The third season is on air in India on Star World. The season finale, which is the 13th episode, will be the series finale.

The cast also included Jake McLaughlin, Johanna Braddy, Russell Tovey, Alan Powell, Marlee Matlin and Blair Underwood.
