The Shonda Rhimes drama will close out its run in 2018.
May 10, 2017
It is being reported that an endgame has been worked out for Scandal to conclude with its recently-ordered seventh season. While ABC hasn't yet commented on the matter, the network is expected to make an official announcement at their upfront presentation next week.
The veteran Shondaland political thriller has continued to be a solid performer deep into its run, with viewership numbers in key demographics making it one of broadcast television's top dramas. While most long-running series eventually end due to falling ratings, the decision to conclude Scandal is said to be creatively-driven, with creator Shonda Rhimes ultimately making the call.

Fast moving and powerful show! Did not like the fact that each week you had to follow story line closely, because if you blinked you surely would miss something. Thursday nights will never be the same.

I am SO sad to hear Scandal will be leaving!!! I LOVE that show. Wish Shonda would have cancelled Murder instead. So dark and hard to follow. I am bummed!

So TGIT breaks up after next season? sucks scandal has to be the first to go but rather it be scandal than Grey's anatomy. I love TGIT all except Murder, Murder lost my viewrship since the middle of season two. Grey's has kept my interest since the first season and it's going on season 14 and I still love the show. I mean scandal has been on since 2012 and murder since 2014-2015 but however Grey's anatomy has been on for twelve years and has lost a bit of viewrship but is still going strong.
