http://quencie.com/news/scandal-to-end-with-season-7According to TV Line, Scandal‘s upcoming seventh seventh will be its last. The network is expected to make a formal announcement at its upfront presentation on Tuesday. Creator Shonda Rhimes made the call to conclude the series, and ABC accepted her decision. The news comes with three episodes remaining in Scandal‘s current sixth season.
Rhimes has previously said that, unlike the long-running Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal‘s heavily serialized, high-stakes narrative necessitates a short-ish shelf life. “I feel like there is a finite amount of Scandal to be told,” Rhimes previously told NPR. “So I know what the end of Scandal will be, and I feel really good about that. And I can see where the end point is. And I don’t think I’m going to change that.”
Scandal this season has been averaging 5.7 million total viewers and a 1.5 demo rating, down 20 and 30 percent from Season 4 and hitting series lows (5.1 mil/1.2) as recently as April 6. At its zenith (with the Season 4 premiere), the D.C. drama pulled 12 million viewers with a 3.8 demo rating.
Kinda...she just said she knew where it was gonna end. But then she also said with everything that was going on in the White House now, there was things she wanted to explore and she didn't exactly know when it would end.Storyteller wrote:Didn't she say that before? That it was only ever gonna run for 7 season.
