Of course, “business as usual” for Opa isn’t any less insane than what we’ve seen in recent weeks. Tasked with proving the innocence of a man on death row, the remaining Gladiators — Quinn, Huck and the other guy — traveled to his backwoods hometown to confront the racist bartender whose testimony led to his arrest. (And I mean this guy was, like, cartoonishly racist.) Anyway, guns were »
The End Date has been handled.
Although ABC isn’t commenting, multiple sources confirm to TVLine exclusively that Scandal‘s upcoming seventh seventh will be its last. The network is expected to make a formal announcement at its upfront presentation on Tuesday. I’m told series creator Shonda Rhimes made the call to conclude the series, and ABC accepted her decision.
