While showing a photo of the Scandal cast returning to work on social media, Lara said, “A little bittersweet however, because it has been said that this is also going to be the final season.”
Luckily, Shonda quickly responded on Twitter saying that is not true!
“Whoa, @GMA: I never said this was the final season of #scandal. Way to make me spit out my coffee!,” Shonda wrote.
Lara quickly responded on air, saying, “We said that this was the last season of Scandal. Shonda has weighed in, she just tweeted, and she said we made her spit out her coffee. My apologies. She said she has an ending in mind, but that ending is not happening this next season. So, thank you, Shonda…. We can all breathe, because as you guys know, it is my absolute favorite show. So correction: Ending in mind, but when that ending is happening we don’t know. So, to be continued on the Scandal scandal. More Scandal. So Shonda, thank you, I’m sorry I made you spit out your coffee.”
“Thank you for the correction, @LaraSpencer — you have my back!❤️” Shonda added after.
