Can September 25th get here faster?!
The season hasn’t even started and ‘Scandal’ has already taken over Thursday. Yesterday (July 23), Ellen DeGeneres tweeted about a new addition to the series.
“So annoying when people brag on twitter & that’s why I’m not tweeting that Portia just signed on to do a top secret arc on “Scandal” opps.”
We let the tweet slide since ABC nor Shonda officially announced Portia would be joining them. However E! did some digging and managed to uncover some truth through the tweet.
All we know is that Portia’s deal is done, she is joining the show for season four, and it will be for more than one episode.
Also, if you are thinking Portia might be a new part of Olivia Pope’s team, we are right there with you. However, when we asked Shonda last week if she will be “replenshing the Gladiators this year,” after the loss of Harrison (Columbus Short), her answer was short and evasive: “Were there any Gladiators at the end of the season?”
There you have it. Portia De Rossi is joining the cast, but her role has yet to be identified but as far as we know she won’t be suiting up for OPA.
Make sure you tune into Shonday’s starting September 25th. Catch the season premiere of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ at its new time (8pm (EST)), Scandal with Portia at 9pm, and then stay after to watch Shonda’s new series ‘How to Get Away With Murder.’
