It’s handled. According to multiple reports, Scandal the popular show that upgraded Kerry Washington‘s profile, helped Shonda Rhimes dominate TV and kicked off a Golden Age of Black TV, is ending after 7 seasons.
“I would say yes, in Shonda’s head,” Dungey said in January when asked whether there was a plan for ending the show. “I know already that she has some great ideas for next season, which will be season seven. We have not really talked about what happens after that. But I love the show and I would happily keep the show on as long as she feels that she has creative runway to write the show.”
“Scandal” turned Kerry Washington into a major star, and its success helped cement Rhimes’ status as an uber-showrunner. “Scandal” was the pillar of ABC’s “TGIT” strategy of loading up Thursday night with Rhimes-produced sudsers. Of late, however, a resurgent “Grey’s Anatomy” has eclipsed the viewership of “Scandal.”
