Scandal Season 5. Scandal was renewed for a new season. It would premiere Thursday Sept. 24 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC! Are you excited? Now, news and rumors about the new gladiators are trend. In fact and in spite season 4 was absolutely thrilling, the team is smaller than ever. But when Scandal season 5 was announced, Shonda Rhimes also revealed that there will be a new gladiator added to the team. Great! It was absolutely necessary because after Olivia Pope returned from her ‘vacancies’ with Jake Ballard (Scott Foley), few gladiators were active.
We still miss Harrison Wright (Columbus Short), and Abby is working at the White House now. Quinn and Huck are still loyal but in the finale, gladiator Huck crossed a line.
“The truth is he killed a bus load of innocent American people and chopped a lot of their heads off for fun so Huck’s crossed a major line. Now Quinn has crossed lines but not that bad.” Actress Katie Lowes.
Then, we need that Abby returns to the team and at least a new gladiator.
Rhimes stated that the new gladiator will be someone we have seen before. Could it be a gladiator from the past like Stephen Finch (Henry Ian Cusick) or perhaps someone Liv already worked with like Josie Marcus (Lisa Kudrow)?
What do you think? What do you expect from Scandal season 5? Who is your favorite gladiator? Quinn Perkins (Katie Lowes), Huck (Guillermo Diaz), Abby Whelan (Darby Stanchfield) or Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington)? Vote now!
**Remember that Scandal is an American political thriller television series starring Kerry Washington. Kerry Washington’s character, Olivia Pope, is partially based on former George H.W. Bush administration press aide Judy Smith, who serves as a co-executive producer. Thus, the show takes place in Washington, D.C.
