FINALLY! After months and months of waiting, the first trailer for ‘Scandal’ season 6 has arrived. Olivia Pope and the Gladiators are back and better than ever. Click to WATCH!
Mellie and Olivia are at odds again. In the intense season 6 trailer, which was revealed on Good Morning America on Nov. 3, Mellie threatens to quit running for president. “I am done running for president,” Mellie screams at Olivia. “Well, I’m not,” Olivia snaps back. The look on Mellie’s face when Olivia says that is classic Mellie.
Olivia and Fitz share some very dramatic moments in season 6. “What if you’re wrong,” Fitz sternly asks Olivia. “I won’t be wrong!” Olivia screams at him. Take it easy, Liv. Fitz and Olivia may have ended their relationship last season, but they’re far from over. Olivia leans her head on Fitz’s shoulder in an intimate scene in the trailer. Olivia always goes back to Fitz.
Scandal was pushed to midseason because of Kerry Washington’s pregnancy. The show was replaced in ABC’s Thursday night lineup with Notorious. TGIT took a little break for the fall season since there would no longer be back-to-back Shonda Rhimes, 46, shows. Thursday nights just aren’t the same without Scandal.
Even though Kerry’s been pregnant — she gave birth in Oct. 2016 — the show started filming season 6 already. Kerry revealed on Ellen in Sept. 2016 that the show was hiding her baby bump again, which confirms that her pregnancy will not be written into the show. “Big coats, big bags… hiding behind different body parts of other actors,” Kerry told Ellen DeGeneres, 58.
The season 5 finale of Scandal ended on a shocking note. Fitz revealed to Olivia that he knew about her abortion. Cyrus became Vargas’ VP, while Jake joined Mellie’s ballot. Rowan’s constant manipulation of Jake and Olivia paid off.
The cast and crew has been tight-lipped regarding season 6 spoilers. Gladiators don’t know anything about what’s to come. Will Mellie win the election?! Will Olivia end up with Fitz or Jake? We just don’t know! Scandal season 6 will premiere Jan. 19.
