In Season 1 of this suspense drama, FBI Agent Alex Parrish (Priyanka Chopra) becomes the prime suspect in a terror attack and goes on the run to prove her innocence and find the person who is truly responsible.

Suddenly, Alex doesn't know who to trust as her close friend Shelby (Johanna Braddy) and her on-again, off-again boyfriend Ryan (Jake McLaughlin) become suspects. Also starring Dougray Scott, Aunjanue Ellis and Yasmine Al Massri.

Critic Reviews for Quantico Season 1

All Critics (59) | Top Critics (28)

If Grey's Anatomy set at Quantico with a long-term terrorism plot sounds bad to you, proceed no further: This is not your show. If it sounds kind of appealing, as it does to me, Quantico may be your least execrable show of fall.

At the heart of the action is Priyanka Chopra, a huge international star who could be about to make a splash in the United States.

What the real-life world really doesn't need right now is another devastating terrorist attack on New York City or grossly incompetent screening of would-be FBI agents at the Quantico Academy.

TV demands suspension of disbelief, but enough suspension to see Grand Central destroyed in the pilot? New York has suffered enough trauma; it doesn't need any more, especially rendered in the service of prime-time entertainment.

Quantico is so taut and terrifically calibrated that it may out-Shonda ABC treasure Shonda Rhimes, the acknowledged master of sexy, twisty, expertly-paced dramas.

Sep 21, 2015 | Rating: A | Full Review…

As confusing as it was at times, there were parts of the first episode - which balanced soapiness, action, and, curiously enough, successful bits of comedy - that did pique our interest.

For the moment, it can be interesting to see how this curious mix works. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 15, 2018 | Full Review…

[This season] lost me a lot of times in the middle of the season but the beginning and end of the season were phenomenal.

Jun 27, 2018 | Full Review…

We wanted to like it, simply because a network TV show about a glamorous FBI agent sounds like fun, but we couldn't get past the open swiping of other shows' concepts and style.

Jun 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Quantico seems to try to paper over the cracks of poorly drawn characters and implausibility by heaping on more of the same.

Audience Reviews for Quantico: Season 1

  • Feb 19, 2019
    I liked it just barely enough to finish season 1, but i have to say, network programing is so dumbed down that it's hard to watch. The writing and editing was poor. The plots twists are fairly predicable and writing was meh. Acting was par for a network tv show.
  • Jan 29, 2019
    Best way to describe this show is to describe how the show's writers meetings go: Head writer: Ok, people, give me all of your ideas. Writers: Provide myriad of plots and ideas. Head writer: Ok, let's do all of them, at the same time.

    The dumbest show ever! 4-5 girls I can't tell apart. from a cop show to a high school love fest. I've seen nothing that resembles anything remotely real to life.
  • Sep 11, 2018
    Flat script, boring characters, predictable twists... plain american tv show - laaaame.
  • Aug 18, 2018
    Hard to find much to like here. Shallow acting, predictably forced plot twists, hackneyed characters. The characters bounce between overly strong and confident to completely helpless and vulnerable from minute to minute. Hard to picture most of the group actually succeeding beyond day one of FBI recruit academy. The women wearing low-cut tops and the men overly-tight shirts (neither of which would meet uniform standard) are probably the only reason some people watch this dribble.
  • May 19, 2018
    this is objectively the worst show I've every seen. The only good part is how hilarious i tis to watch due to the atrocious writing, acting and plot.
  • Apr 27, 2018
    it is not really necessary to see that tv series
  • Sep 28, 2017
    It starts off potentially smart, but descends into disjointed storylines requiring a tremendous degree of suspended disbelief. The creators overdo their political theatre at the expense of the writing and the acting. They should all be embarrassed.
  • Jul 26, 2017
    It's so unexpected, creative and moving story through the season, make us never no what's coming next! Pryanka Chopra it's the new star in Hollywood's TV Drama Series
  • Jul 15, 2017
    The writers originally did an excellent job with Season 1. Unfortunately, that success was not sustained in Season 2. It feels as if the characters are now being "developed" by teen writers or shallow personalities. The show's connection with the audience became abysmal. Almost every other episode is littered with immature, knee-jerk reactions to mature situations, which is unfitting for the characters as they're intended to be portrayed. You know how too much of anything is a bad thing (i.e. excessive sweets give toothaches, too much salt dries your mouth or makes food taste horrible, etc)? Well, the characters seem to be overtaken by teenage hormone levels and then doused with LGBT initiatives, of which, both issues disjoint the character development in the series. From an adult's perspective, Season 1 is Quantico for grown-ups while Season 2 became Quantico for Middle Schoolers. The show is dead to my friends and I now–nothing left to talk about. So we jumped ship and found other shows to watch instead. Good luck to the cast in their future endeavors. After all, it's not their fault.
