Jake (Scott Foley) will have a new spouse when ABC’s Scandal returns for Season 6.
Carter won’t be able to return due to her subsequent series regular commitment on NBC’s Chicago Justice, according to TVLine.
Carter has a co-starring role in the Chicago PD planted spinoff opposite Philip Winchester and Nazneen Contractor. She plays Lori Nagle, a tough-as-nails investigator.
Scandal returns for the sixth season in 2017.
