Tv Season Info

The seventh and monumental final season of "Scandal" will return with a brand new White House administration that includes Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young) as the first female president of the United States, Cyrus Beane (Jeff Perry) as the vice president, and Olivia Pope as Mellie's chief of staff. Olivia also doubles as the head of the newly reinstated top secret government agency B6-13, with Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) working by her side. Expectant mother Quinn Perkins (Katie Lowes) is now head of the newly inherited crisis management firm QPA (Quinn Perkins and Associates), with Abby Whelan (Darby Stanchfield) as her right-hand woman, and Huck (Guillermo Diaz) and Charlie (George Newbern) as her dedicated gladiators. Meanwhile, former POTUS Fitzgerald Grant III (Tony Goldwyn) is focused on maintaining his legacy by building his library and foundation with the help of Marcus Walker (Cornelius Smith Jr.). And although Rowan Pope's (Joe Morton) role reversal with Olivia initially proves to be a struggle, he always has something up his sleeve. David Rosen (Josh Malina) remains the attorney general of the United States.

Top Critic

I can already tell that Scandal's final season is going to feel like one long "what if?" episode - and I'm not mad about it at all.

It's unsettling to follow - it doesn't feel like the same Scandal we've grown to love.

October 10, 2017 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

I'm all for Olivia calling the shots. Kerry Washington is killing it.

October 8, 2017 | Rating: 3.8/5 | Full Review…

[Olivia's] speech is so fiery.

October 6, 2017 | Full Review…

Watch Me heralds the birth of a brand-new Olivia Pope, one far more willing to follow her darker impulses if she believes the ends justify the means.
