Gladiators, the day has come. It’s been confirmed that Scandal will wrap next season. We know, we know, compose yourselves, people.
According to reports, the show’s creator, Shonda Rhimes, will announce next week that the hit ABC drama will come to end following Season 7. The show is currently nearing the end of Season 6.
It’s no secret that Rhimes never intended for the series to go past eight seasons, but it’s still a blow. Shonda recently told The Hollywood Reporter, “I used to know how it ended, and then Donald Trump was elected. We had a destination, and I don’t know if that’s our destination anymore.”
Following the breaking news, dozens of fans spoke out on Twitter expressing their disappointment. Most people share the same consensus … what are they going to do?
The good news is, we still get our Kerry Washington fix for at least one more season.
