In true Scandal fashion, we’re teased with a 10-second clip. We see a distraught President Grant seated behind his desk in the Oval Office. He’s trying to call Olivia Pope, but answered with the operator’s famous line, “the number you have reached is not in service, please hang up and call again.”
In other words Olivia Pope is missing!
Fans were left shocked but somber at the end of season three. Unlike Shonda Rhime’s usual tricks, there was no explosion or major incident. Instead we watched as Olivia and her side-piece Jake boarded a private jet together. The last piece of her story is Fitz calls her as she takes off and she ignores it and quietly turns off her phone.
All we know about the next season is that Ellen DeGeneres’ wife Portia De Rossi will be joining the casts, but as far as the storyline, that’s B16 classified.
Gladiators will have to wait a few more weeks until we can finally suit up and find out the fate of Olivia’s love triangle and tumultuous family relationship.
Press play to watch the trailer and make sure you mark you calendars for September 25th.
