ABC has already renewed Scandal for Season 6, but could that be the last in the series?
“I trust her. We are where we are because of her decision-making.”
However, co-star Tony Goldwyn, who plays President Fitzgerald Grant on the political thriller, admits Season 6 could be the last:
“I’m assuming at the end of next season, my presidency will be finished. So what happens to Scandal once there’s a new president? Either that’s the end or Shonda has something in mind that may or may not include me, a whole other direction.”
Equally, however, he’s not ruling out a seventh season:
“Shonda and her team constantly paint themselves into corners, storytelling-wise, where you go, well, you’re never going to be able to get out of that! And they do. So I do believe that even if she intended to end the show there, if she suddenly thought, hmm, let’s do something totally different, I would not be surprised at all.”
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the status of Scandal Season 7…
