Shonda Rhimes Confirms ‘Scandal’ Will OFFICIALLY End with Season 7
Though it was just speculation last week, it has just been confirmed that Scandal will OFFICIALLY end with season 7 next year. Show-runner Shonda Rhimes released a statement saying:
“Deciding how to end a show is easy. 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.”
This is semi-sad news for Scandal fans like myself, who found the current season, which will air its finale later this week, as one of the best seasons in a very long time.
Scandal debuted in 2012 and stars Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope, who runs a crisis management firm, Olivia Pope & Associates.
In addition to Kerry Washington, the show features Guillermo Diaz and Katie Lowes as assistants at O.P.A.; Tony Goldwyn as the President; Bellamy Young as the ex-First Lady and senator; Jeff Perry as the former White House Chief of Staff; Darby Stanchfield as the White House Press Secretary and current Chief of Staff; Joshua Malina as the Attorney General; Scott Foley as the Director of the NSA; Cornelius Smith Jr. as a civil rights activist and associate at O.P.A.; and Joe Morton as Olivia’s father and the former head of a spy agency called B613.
While I’m sad to see Scandal go, it’s good to end the show on a high note, before it officially starts to jump ship.
