'Scandal' Officially Ending with Season 7, Shonda Rhimes Releases Statement

It’s official – Kerry Washington‘s hit series Scandal will be ending after season seven, which will air during the 2017-18 television season.

The news was rumored last week, but ABC finally confirmed it leading up to the network’s upfronts event on Tuesday (May 16).

“Deciding how to end a show is easy,” Scandal creator and executive producer Shonda Rhimes said in a statement. “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.”

Kerry Washington Talks About How Her Pregnancy Affected 'Scandal' Season 6

Kerry Washington and Bellamy Young sat front and center for the 2017 Winter TCA Press Tour for their ABC show Scandal, returning later this month.

Also in attendance were actors Scott Foley, Joshua Malina, Darby Stanchfield, Tony Goldwyn, Joe Morton, Cornelius Smith Jr., executive producer Betsy Beers, and creator/executive producer Shonda Rhimes at the event, held at the Langham Hotel on Tuesday (January 10) in Pasadena, Calif.

Shonda spoke about the presidential election, and how Donald Trump‘s election has nothing to do with season 6.

“These candidates don’t equate, so I don’t think you can correlate the two,” Shonda said.
“If that had been the goal I would have waited until after the election [to produce season 6].”

“It’s very different than any season we’ve had. We can’t judge it against what we’ve one before, or in terms of what’s going on now,” Shonda added about the upcoming season.

Kerry also talked about now being a mom of two, and how that effects her job.

“I’m still figuring that out, because we are just back to work,” Kerry said. “The nice thing is I did it once before.”

FYI: Kerry is wearing Proenza Schouler. Bellamy is wearing an Alexander Wang top, a Max Mara skirt, Schutz shoes, and jewelry by Sylva & Cie, Randall Scott Fine Jewelry, and Graziela Gems.
