Fans could expect a bolder and more deceptive "Quantico" Season 2, the production revealed, as Priyanka Chopra's crime series comes back in the small screen with pilot episode titled "Kudove" on September 25.

As previously reported on Itechpost, the series will revolve around the heroine Alex, now a trainee at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) after getting fired from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), as she investigates a potential espionage.  

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Joshua Safran detailed that "Quantico" Season 2 deals about "lines" that one cannot cross.

"Season 2 deals with issues of morality," he explained. "That has made the show more mature, more introspective."

Safran also added that his description might sound boring but the show will still be fun.

"It's still got fun in it, it's still got sex in it, but no one's hopping into bed with each other every episode. Season 2 is what the pilot promised. It's more like the pilot in every way," he added.

New cast member of "Quantico" Season 2  Aarón Diaz who plays the role of daring photojournalist León Velez teases the viewers.

"Don't believe anything you see," he said with a smirk as if he was already in character. "We're all deceptive."

Priyanka Chopra, on the other hand, talks about her role on "Quantico" Season 2 and the CIA.

"The CIA is clandestine, so it's all about deceit, evasiveness, and lying, but Alex is all about the truth, finding the truth, and being good," Chopra said. "She's suddenly outside of her comfort zone...I don't know how Alex is going to do it. I'm nervous for her!" she added laughing.

Priyanka Chopra's rise to fame in Hollywood did not only heighten the level of Bollywood stars but also changed the perception of former beauty queens as Miss World 2000 title holder. Another beauty queen, last year's Miss Universe runner-up Ariadna Gutierrez, is also gaining popularity in the Hollywood as Vin Diesel's love interest on the upcoming movie "xXx: The Return of Xander" and few hosting and acting stints on the small screen, Parent Herald reported.

The first episode of "Quantico" Season 2 will be aired September 25 (Sunday), at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
