Quantico which first aired in 2015 was Priyanka Chopra's debut American television show. She headlined the cast for three seasons and the show will end with the end of the third - and current - season. Priyanka played the role of Alex Parrish, an FBI rookie accused of being involved in a terrorist activity, who clears her name and is later promoted to the CIA, where she takes up prime projects to save the Americans.

After completing Quantico, Priyanka will return to India where she will start filming Bharat opposite Salman Khan.
