ABC today cancelled Quantico after three seasons on the air. The sad news, which comes just three episodes into the drama's third-season run, is not much of a surprise considering its recent struggles in the ratings.

The hour-long series premiered in 2015 as one of the year's most-promising debuts, quickly becoming the #1 broadcast series on Sunday nights in the adults 18-49 demographic. Its early buzz quieted down somewhat by the end of Season 1, but its numbers still warranted a sophomore pickup. Season 2 saw its viewership slip further, and a move from Sundays to Mondays did little to change its fortunes. With Season 3 now hitting series lows, it makes sense that a fourth season would not be in the cards.
