Cast as series protagonist Alex Parrish in Quantico, an American thriller drama television series, Priyanka Chopra was praised for her performance.
The Indian film actress and singer signed a talent holding deal with ABC Studios in 2014. The Disney subsidiary agreed to develop a starring vehicle for Miss World 2000 or cast Chopra in an existing project set for fall in the following year.
Priyanka Chopra was paid $3 million per season of Quantico
According to Forbes, Priyanka Chopra pulled in an estimated $3 million per season of Quantico. The show aired from September 27, 2015, to August 3, 2018, with 57 episodes broadcast on the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) over three seasons.
Why was Quantico canceled?
ABC canceled the series in May 2018 due to poor ratings. According to Hollywood Reporter, the premiere of the third season opened to a lackluster 0.5 rating in the adults 18-49 demo and less than 3 million total viewers. In comparison, the first episode of season one was seen by over 7 million viewers.
What a milestone! Although Priyanka Chopra already had an impressive collection of trophies from her body of Bollywood work, the Indian actress was expecting her first year on the United States entertainment scene to be somewhat low key. Boy, was she in for a surprise.
