Matlin will play Jocelyn Turner, an ex-FBI agent who was known at one time as the best undercover agent in the field, until a bomb blew up near her and rendered her deaf. The FBI put her out to pasture, but now she’s being brought back to join a special unit with several other returning characters.
Series regulars Priyanka Chopra, Jake McLaughlin, Johanna Braddy and Blair Underwood will return for Season 3. Michael Seitzman is the new executive producer/showrunner.
Matlin won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for her first film, Children of a Lesser God. She since has appeared in numerous TV series, earning four Emmy noms for Law & Order: SVU, The Practice, Picket Fences and Seinfeld. Her most recent credits include Switched at Birth and a current recurring role on Syfy’s The Magicians. She’s repped by Innovative Artists and Media Four.
Quantico was created by Josh Safran. Executive Producers are Michael Seitzman, Mark Gordon, Nicholas Pepper and Robert Sertner. Quantico is produced by ABC Studios.
