Nearly three months after giving birth to a precious baby girl, Kerry Washington is back at work ready to bring fans another epic season of ABC’s Scandal.
On Thursday, the actress posted an adorable snapshot on Instagram of herself posing with her Scandal co-star, Joshua Malina. The new mom, who sported a pair of sunglasses captioned the image:
“#RealScandalFansBeLike “FINALLY!” XOXOX Ep. #401.”
The show’s creator, Shonda Rhimes also shared a photo with fans of Kerry hard at work and sipping a cup of coffee.
“Our own @kerrywashington at the #scandal table read! We are just starting the read,” she captioned the picture.
Season 4 of the Scandal is set to premiere on September 25 at 9/8c following Grey’s Anatomy. While most of the cast will be returning, there will be a few noticeable shake ups. As previously reported, Columbus Short will not be rejoining the cast. The actor issued a statement back in April 25 announcing the news.
“At this time I must confirm my exit from a show I’ve called home for 3 years, with what is the most talented ensemble on television today. I would like to first thank [creator] Shonda Rhimes for the opportunity to work with such an amazing cast. Thank you GLADIATORS, who have supported me throughout my entire career and of course to ABC and Shondaland for allowing me to play such a pivotal role in the Scandal series. I have enjoyed every single minute of it. Everything must come to an end and unfortunately the time has come for Harrison Wright to exit the canvas. I wish nothing but the best for Shonda, Kerry and the rest of the cast, who have become like a second family to me in such a short amount of time. For this, I will forever be grateful.”
And joining the cast, Arrested Development star Portia de Rossi.
