The rumours are true: Scandal to end after Season 7
It’s an emotional moment for lovers of Olivia Pope, B613, Command, Jake, President Grant and the team of Gladiators. Phewww!
ABC series, Scandal will end after its seventh season.
Creator and Executive Producer, Shonda Rhimes made it official in a speech, “Deciding when to finish is quite simple when the end date is years away. But actually going through with it? Actually standing up to say: ‘This is it?’ Not so much. So, next year we are going all out. Leaving nothing on the table. Creating this world in celebration. We are going to handle the end the way we like to handle the important things in our ‘Scandal’ family: all together, white hats on, gladiators running full speed over a cliff.”
Lead cast, Kerry Washington is yet to make any comments on what life will be like after she steps out of Olivia Pope’s shoes.
