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.

After seven seasons of rooting for Olivia Pope, even at her worst, it's nice to see her get the win.

Fun, silly addictive Scandal was also a serious and important part of TV history.

I am enjoying this Olivia Pope. When she sets her sights on something, she goes for it, and she's starting out strong this season with a clear view of what she wants.

I have little doubt it will be fun to take the ride.

Scandal was more than its wildest plot twists or Olivia's white hat. It was a very real hit that changed the TV industry in more ways than one.

[Olivia] might be gone, but her legacy is permanent.

Looking back, the real Scandal was that anyone kept watching.

If this was a sort-of farewell to the Shondaland brand at its height, Scandal delivered an hour that felt very much in keeping with what preceded it, which is what any good finale should aspire to do.
