Alex Parrish just bought herself a little more time to find Quantico‘s true terrorist: The ABC drama has earned itself a full-season pickup, the network announced Tuesday.
The order for six additional episode will bring the full count to 19; an ABC rep tells TVLine that there’s a possibility that that order will expand.
The series’ premiere drew 7.1 million total viewers and a 1.9 demo rating, improving greatly on previous timeslot-holder Revenge‘s numbers. In Week 2, it was down only 3 percent in audience and matched the premiere’s demo number, and was the night’s highest-rated drama.
