The election results are in — or so says this new teaser trailer for the return of ABC’s Scandal. Promising that the D.C. drama will “live up to the hype” — within the first 10 minutes, no less — the promo also announces a January 19 premiere date for Season 6.
The series focuses on Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington), who runs a crisis management firm in the nation’s capital. She and her team at Olivia Pope & Associates are charged with handling political scandals. She also has a thing with a certain inhabitant of the Oval Office (Tony Goldwyn). Season 5 ended with the presidential candidates getting ready to announce their runnings mates — and Olivia in difficult situation of her own. The ensemble cast also includes Scott Foley, Darby Stanchfield, Katie Lowes, Guillermo Diaz, Jeff Perry, Bellamy Young, Joshua Molina, Portia de Rossi and Cornelius Smith Jr.
Season 6 of Scandal will air at 9 PM Thursdays, after Grey’s Anatomy at 8 and followed by How to Get Away With Murder at 10. The winter finales of the other two Shondaland dramas will air on November 17. Check out the Scandal trailer above and tell us what you think.
