Kerry Washington has finally broken her silence about Scandal coming to an end.
It was reported last week that the hit ABC drama will officially wrap next season. Despite having one more season of Pope and company, Gladiators still collectively lost their minds following the news.
But during an appearance on Good Morning America, Washington admitted to feeling just as “sad” as the fans. “I think we’re all a little sad but also we feel grateful to have the information,” Kerry said.
The 40-year-old continued, “Sometimes as an actor you don’t know when you’re going to be out of a job, so it’s nice actually to go into the last season knowing that it’s our last season. We’re already talking about how it’s going to be, like, no-holds-barred, better than ever, no holding punches, putting it all out on the table.”
The mother of two also revealed that the show’s creator, Shonda Rhimes, reworked the storylines to slightly reflect what’s happening politically in the U.S. “As we have created sort of the imaginary world of the impossible in Washington, now that’s happening in the real world, so we’ve had to up our ante,” Kerry explained.
The two-hour Season 6 finale airs Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
