ABC has released its 2014-2015 lineup. It includes a slight move for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which will return for Season 2 this fall, but will air an hour later than usual. Meanwhile, Scandal and Grey's Anatomy have been shifted up on the Thursday night schedule.
While we might have expected renewals for shows like Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and Modern Family, the fate of some of ABC's new series was a bit less certain. But word is coming down the pipeline for many of them, and it's good news for Resurrection and The Goldbergs, which join Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. among ABC's freshman series that will be back for Season 2 in the 2014-2015 season.
Following an erroneous report that an actor named Eric West had been cast to replace Columbus Short in Scandal, series creator Shonda Rhimes has gone on (Twitter) record to debunk the news, stating that she's never heard of Eric West and confirming without a shadow of a doubt that Harrison is not being recast. Ever.
The Harrison plotline was one of the most exciting stories from the finale, and became a great point of speculation for fans, especially after showrunner Shonda Rhimes capably avoided answering any questions about the character’s fate. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the character will be getting a happy ending. Over the weekend, actor Columbus Short, who plays Harrison in the series, confirmed he will not be returning for Season 4 of ABC’s drama.
Major spoilers if you aren't caught up on Scandal through last night's Season 3 finale! Jimmy Kimmel took Scandal fans "Behind the Scandalabra" with a Scandal post-finale special featuring Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes, who dished the dirt on some of the decisions made this season. For example, did you know Jake was almost made Fitz's new Vice President?
The third season of Scandal wrapped up tonight with an episode that offered one figurative punch to the stomach after another. Seriously, could things get any worse? Ok, maybe they could. After all, some people did get what they wanted, but it all came at a price.
Bringing Olivia Pope's parents into the mix certainly has caused some explosive drama. They're both ruthless people with their own motives and Olivia's caught in the middle. Spoilers if you aren't caught up through last night's episode!
To watch Kerry Washington on Scandal these days, you probably wouldn't be able to guess that she's pregnant. Of course, if you were paying close attention to the blocking and props, you might begin to notice the clever ways the series is hiding Washington's condition. While Olivia Pope usually dresses in well-fitted ensembles, we've seen her in some loose-fitting tops in recent episodes (see above). And that's not the only way the series has kept Washington's baby bump from view.
The end is near! Scandal, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Castle and other ABC series' season finales have been scheduled. ABC announced the finale dates today, starting with The Neighbors, which will wrap up its second season in April. The finales that follow include Scandal, Last Man Standing, Resurrection and Once Upon a Time.
Jimmy Kimmel has given ABC's hit series Scandal the slightly-more melodramatic treatment it deserves by turning it into a telenovela. Following the absolutely rabid success of the Shonda Rhimes series — which is currently premiering the world over, gaining and even more ravenous fanbase than before — it makes sense that the perma-viral Jimmy Kimmel Live host would spoof the show's antics. It's just made all-the-more amazing thanks to the cast being involved.
Scandal is back! The series returned last night after what seemed like forever to bring us back into the chaos that is Olivia Pope's life. And if you haven't seen last night's episode yet ("Ride, Sally, Ride"), stop reading now because I won't be holding back on the post-ep spoilers!
Scandal returns tonight for its Spring premiere with "Ride, Sally, Ride." While the teaser promises 100% Scandal insanity -- and 8 episodes with no repeats!-- the description for this week's episode (not to mention the title) indicates that this will be a very Sally heavy episode
2013 has been a great year for television, so narrowing down our list of favorites was no easy task. As TV Blend has numerous writers with varying tastes in TV shows, we decided to go solo this year in sharing our Top 5 lists of the best series of 2013. This is Kelly’s list, which begins with the long-awaited fourth season of Arrested Development at #5
Scandal takes an interesting approach to how it deals with its winter finales. While some series will save its massive cliffhanger for that last episode in December and leave fans to wait weeks or longer for the series to take its next breath and let us know what’s happening. Scandal takes a slightly different approach. Last year, the penultimate episode of the half-way point of the series delivered the cliffhanger.
When it comes to Shonda Rhimes’ mile-a-minute ABC series Scandal, there’s not many places the showrunner won’t go in the name of compelling storytelling peppered by a couple jaw-on-the-floor moments each and every episode. But we highly suggest holding onto one’s butt in preparation for tonight’s midseason finale (titled "A Door Marked Exit"), because if what the actors have said are true, we’re in for one walloper of a time. And probably a head-spinning misadventure in crazytown.
