ABC has renewed Scandal for a fourth season. The Shonda Rhimes-created political thriller continues to gain momentum, with its strong viewership making it one of the network's top shows.

Scandal has been seeing ratings growth since its debut, which is somewhat of a rare occurrence in today's television landscape. In Season 3, ratings in the 18-49 demographic reached series-high levels.

Look for Season 4 to premiere this fall.

UPDATE: Season 4 of Scandal will premiere on Thursday, September 25, 2014 at 9:00pm.
