According to TVLine, multiple sources confirm that Shonda Rhimes has chosen to end the show in 2018, and ABC accepted her decision. ABC is reportedly expected to officially make the announcement next week.

ABC, producers ABC Studios and Shondaland declined comment. I think that Shonda Rhimes is too much of a genius for that. While I'm disappointed we won't get eight years of Mellie, it's still a good stopping point for the show. "Scandal" was the pillar of ABC's "TGIT" strategy of loading up Thursday night with Rhimes-produced sudsers. "But in recent history we haven't paid enough attention to some of the true realities of what life is like for everyday Americans in our dramas". "But I love the show and I would happily keep the show on as long as she feels that she has creative runway to write the show", Dungey added.

Like almost all political dramas on television right now, ratings for "Scandal", which debuted in 2012, have been down. Even Charlie (George Newbern) is a bit anxious about it, so questions about Huck and Quinn's bond will be answered in the last remaining episodes of this season. "I know how long it will be, but we'll see".

With 197,800 avg volume, 0 days are for Royce Value Trust Incorporated (NYSE:RVT)'s short sellers to cover RVT's short positions. HP Inc. (NYSE:HPQ) for the trailing twelve months paying dividend with the payout ratio of 16.03% to its shareholders.

Scandal, which has three episodes left in its sixth season, has already been renewed for Season 7.

The only question left now will be how Rhimes will choose to end the show and even she seems unsure of what way to go with that. Then the show became focused on the admittedly steamy romance between Smith stand-in Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and the married POTUS Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn).

Series creator Shonda Rhimes "made the call to conclude the series", TVLine reports. She is also still at the helm of other successful shows, producing "Grey's Anatomy", "The Catch" and "How to Get Away with Murder".
