ABC’s “Quantico” is a rare breed of serialized thriller that is built for the volume needs of a broadcast network. Where most shows of its ilk now keep each season to 13 episodes or less, “Quantico” creator-showrunner Josh Safran is happily plotting the course to deliver 22 hours this season and next.
Many showrunners and stars now insist on shorter episode orders to facilitate the storytelling and keep the tension running high. But Safran is a creative creature of the broadcast network world, which makes “Quantico” all the more valuable to ABC if the show can maintain the momentum of its first half.
“I grew up in the 22 episode model,” Safran told Variety. “My brain is wired that way. I don’t know what I would do with the time on my hands for a second season.”
