Scandal‘s cancellation means the seventh season will be its last. But how will the series end?
While the series finale remains under wraps, appearing on The Wendy Williams Show star Bellamy Young confirmed that Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes originally intended for the series to wrap at the end of Season 6, with Mellie being sworn in as POTUS:
“[Shonda Rhimes] said she always knew [where Scandal] starts and ends, that it was a finite show, not like Grey’s Anatomy, which is going to run forever
“We asked her at the beginning of the year. We went out to dinner and asked, ‘Is it ending like you always thought it would, or has anything changed?’ And now, she said that it was going to end at the inauguration, so we got an extra year, so Season 7 feels like such a gift from heaven.”
Would you have been satisfied with that ending? What are your ultimate hopes for the seventh and final season of Scandal?
