Expect Scandal season 7, which we learned last week will be the show’s final outing, to be a barnburner of a series.

Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes spoke out about wrapping up her popular series during ABC’s Upfront presentation on Tuesday afternoon. In her statement, she teased that big things are afoot!

“Deciding how to end a show is easy,” said Shonda Rhimes, Scandal’s creator and executive producer. “Deciding when to finish is quite simple when the end date is years away. But actually going through with it? Actually standing up to say: ‘This is it?’ Not so much.”

“So, next year we are going all out. Leaving nothing on the table. Creating this world in celebration. We are going to handle the end the way we like to handle the important things in our Scandal family: all together, white hats on, gladiators running full speed over a cliff.”

Let’s hope this isn’t just hyperbole. Kill Rowan! Give Olivia one cemented, happy ending!

2018 is the year of the diverse superhero
