Sad news for Scandal fans.
According to ABC, there will be four fewer episodes of Scandal this season than originally planned (tear). The network said on Friday that there will only be 18 episodes of the 22 planned.
The decision allegedly follows news that Washington and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha are expecting a baby. Production will reportedly be wrapped early for the TV beauty.
After Thursday’s show, the drama will go on a break before returning in February with it’s final episodes.
Multiple sources confirmed Washington’s pregnancy back in October. “She’s about four months along,” a source told Us Weekly. Another source also revealed to People magazine that the star is expecting a baby late Spring.
