Scandal Season 4 is coming to US TV screens this month whilst in the UK we are only half way through Season 3, what exactly can we expect.

Scandal is a Political Thriller that centres around the life of Oliver Pope as she  protects the public images of the nation’s elite.  Here we take a look at what to expect from Season 4.

Spoiler Alert 

The first teaser showed Washington’s best “fixer,” Olivia “Liv” Pope (Kerry Washington), was off for a “vacation” while her lover and boss U.S. President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) was hankering for her whereabouts. The only message Fitz hear when he call her home and office (Pope & Associates) was “the number you have dialed is no longer in service.”

However, it seems like the vacation with Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) won’t last long as Washington was able to tease the fans last month that the Olivitz drama is still far from over.

“I think that it’s so clear that their love is a very very real love, but the roller coaster ride of whether or not they can be together and how and when and why, that’s so much of what makes the show exciting because there are so many question marks around that,” Washington explained.

At the end of season 3 we saw Harrison being held at gunpoint leaving the audience wondering as to what happens, what we can tell you is that Columbus Short, who plays Harrsion in Scandal will not be returning for season 4.

Meanwhile, a synopsis released by SpoilerTV reveals other events that will take place in the next season including Bellamy Young’s Mellie Grant dealing with her personal problems.

“In order for Fitz to make the biggest impact with his State of the Union address on gun control, Cyrus sets out to recruit a power couple (Mary McCormick and Josh Randall) who are influential on the issue. Meanwhile, Mellie’s personal struggle gets national attention,” the website reads.

It a an interview with THR creator Shona Rimes spoke about the future of the show, stating

” I’ve already decided when Scandal is ending. I think there’s only so much Scandal you can tell satisfactorily. The Fitz-Liv thing can only be told so long and in such a way. It’s not a 10-season or eight-season show. I’ve already decided how long that is and what that’s going to be. I’m not really worried about that.”

We will leave you to gleam from that what you wish, but at most that makes Scandal only a 7 season show.

“Scandal” season 4 will air in the US on  Thursday 25th September on ABC whilst UK viewers will have to wait until next summer ( 2015 ) for the 4th season on Sky Living.
