scandal-cancelled-renewed-abc-season-threeThis show was on the bubble during the first season, but the second season was the breakout and it turned this show into a bonafide hit that is probably going to be among us for a long run, as we are used to with Shonda Rhimes´ shows. ABC renews Scandal for season three and there was not even a hint of a surprise in the announcement.

Everyone has secrets… and Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) has dedicated her life to protecting and defending the public images of the nation’s elite by keeping those secrets under wraps. Revered and feared at the same time, Olivia, a former communications director to the President of the United States, left the White House to open her own prominent crisis management firm. Her staff are at the top of their game when it comes to getting the job done, but it becomes apparent that these “gladiators in suits” who specialize in fixing the lives of other people sometimes can’t lives closer at hand, their own. In Season Two of ABC’s “Scandal,” the creator and executive producers of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice” will delve further into the behind-the-scenes machinations of this mesmerizing top image-maker and her team.
