ABC has cancelled Scandal with the political drama’s upcoming seventh season serving as the last in the series, RenewCancelTV has confirmed.
News of Scandal’s end date comes months after the series was renewed for Season 7, without announcement that it would be the last in the show’s run.
While there’s plenty of time to plan a ‘proper ending’, the advance cancellation means Scandal will not reach Season 8 and represents a major coup for the reaper.
The seventh and final season of Scandal will comprise 18 episodes and premieres fall 2017.
