ABC announced today that Season 4 of the Shonda Rhimes-created drama Scandal will launch Thursday, Sept. 25 at 9 p.m., leading into Rhimes’ new drama, How to Get Away With Murder, which stars Viola Davis.
Speaking at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee revealed that the fourth season of Scandal will consist of 22 episodes, returning to a regular episodic count after a slightly truncated third season in order to accomodate star Kerry Washington’s pregnancy. How to Get Away With Murder, meanwhile, will air “15 or 16” episodes this coming season, per Lee.
