Scandal is an American political thriller television series starring Kerry Washington.Created by Shonda Rhimes,it debuted on ABC on April 5, 2012.Kerry Washington’s character,Olivia Pope, is partially based on former George H.W. Bush administration press aide Judy Smith, who serves as a co-executive producer.
A midseason bow in 2017 means that “Scandal” will not run at the same time as the upcoming presidential election, which strikes many similarities to the show’s current storylines. The political drama incorporated an election build-up in its fifth season with revealing the vice presidential running mates for the new season’s election plot. Earlier this season, a Donald Trump-like character was introduced, but has since been booted out of the show’s own presidential running.
While ABC has not commented on the episode order for “Scandal” Season 6, the show cut the episode order from 22 to 18 when Washington was pregnant with her first child during Season 3. Her pregnancy was not written into Olivia Pope’s storyline.
