Scandal Season 7 might be the end of Scandal series
Scandal is a thriller and drama TV series. As we know, ABC has been confirmed that Scandal Season 6 is going to premiere in starting of 2017. Hence, the speculations for Scandal Season 7 have also been raised up in the mind of its fans.
Firstly, ‘Scandal Season 6’ was scheduled to be released in Fall 2016, but due to Kerry Washington’s pregnancy, the shoot of this TV series was delayed. Hence, ABC has to shift this TV series to 2017, unwillingly. Now, in place of this TV series, ABC has ordered a brand new mini-TV series, Notorious, which is also a thriller and drama series.
Storyline of Scandal TV series
This TV series revolves around the character, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington). She is a former White House Communication Director and now, she has started a new firm, Oliver Pope & Associates.
