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.”
