‘Scandal’s’ Shonda Rhimes on Season 4: Harrison Is ‘Gone,’ and Focus Is Back on ‘Core People’

By Lesley Goldberg

ScandalABC’s red-hot Scandal returns for its fourth season with a bit of a creative reset, according to showrunner and uber-producer Shonda Rhimes.

The third season of the Kerry Washington-led political thriller ended with a massive twist: Olivia dissolving OPA and taking off on a plane with Jake (Scott Foley) after she realized/was manipulated by her father to believe that she was the root of the scandal impacting everyone around her.

With season four, Rhimes says the show will go back to focusing on its core cast after seeing its world greatly expanded as President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) ran for re-election and the supporting cast was broadened to help accommodate star Washington, who was pregnant with her first child during Scandal‘s abbreviated 18-episode run.

The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Rhimes on Tuesday at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour to preview how season four will be different, how Columbus Short’s Harrison will be written out, what’s ahead for rest of the Gladiators and more.
