BIG NEWS & SPOILERS FOR QUANTICO SEASON 2!
ABC’s Quantico Season 1 ended with Priyanka Chopra’s FBI Agent Alex Parrish being torn between accepting a phone call that would see her join Jake McLaughlin’s FBI Agent Ryan Booth on the romantic trip she’s wanted to go on OR accept the job offer with the CIA by Henry Czerny’s CIA Director Matthew Keyes.
Quantico’s Season 2 premiere is expected to answer the question of whether she joins the CIA or stays with the FBI. Her answer will shape the regular cast of ABC’s Quantico.
Will there be any cast returns from Quantico Season 1? It looks like at least four actors return with Priyanka Chopra for ABC Quantico Season 2; they are Jake McLaughlin (playing FBI agent Ryan Booth), Aunjanue Ellis (playing FBI Director Miranda Shaw), Yasmine Al Massri (playing FBI and civilian twins Nimah and Raina Amin) and Johanna Braddy (playing FBI agent Shelby Wyatt).
It is not clear whether actor Henry Czerny will return as CIA Director Matthew Keyes for Quantico Season 2, but it has been reported as early as May 2016 that he was in negotiations to return in some capacity for Quantico Season 2; whether for a one or a few episodes or more, it is not yet known.
We do know some of the new regular cast members and some recurring cast members for ABC’s Quantico Season 2.
Actor Grad Russell Tovey joins Quantico Season 2 and is reportedly playing “Harry Doyle. The character is described as a mischievous gadabout. Part Thomas Crown, part grown-up Artful Dodger, the mysterious Harry can be anything to anybody — and is just as likely to seduce your husband as he is to pick his pocket when it’s over.”
Veteran actor Blair Underwood also joins the regular cast and reportedly plays “Owen Hall. The character is described as having an instant presence — he’s charming, direct and comfortable. Hall is the intelligent and inspirational CIA officer every fledgling operative wishes he or she could learn from. But is he running them, or using them for something else?”
Actress Pearl Thusi joins as regular cast and reportedly plays “Dayana Mampasi, a driven, disciplined, type-A lawyer. After graduating top of her class at Harvard, she worked at an NGO for two years before joining her parents’ Boston firm. But though she seems to have it all, Dayana struggles to fit in.”
Tracy Ifeachor will reportedly be a recurring character “Lydia Bates, a highly accomplished actuary with a few twists up her sleeve.”
David Lim will reportedly play recurring character “Sebastian Chen, a focused and confident future agent.”
Aaron Diaz will reportedly be a recurring character “León Velez, a thrill-seeking photojournalist with no home or life outside his backpack.”

ABC’s Quantico Season 2 is shaping up well and its season premiere will be on Sunday, September 25, 2016 at 10 p.m.
