Watch: Scandal’s Sizzling Season 5 Trailer
It’s landed. Just when our Scandal withdrawal was settling in Shonda Rimes and co are stirring us up again with sinful secrets and steamy scenes in the brand new Scandal, season 5 trailer.
Kerry Washington‘s Olivia Pope and Tony Goldwyn‘s Fitz get hot and heavy in the trailer for ABC’s primetime show.
The new promo, which promises “Crazy, twisty goodness,” also teases a major plot development at its end, when Goldwyn, who plays President Fitzgerald Grant and whose love affair with Pope has been a backbone of the series, hands a paper to his wife Mellie, played by Bellamy Young, and says, “I want a divorce.”
Obviously, this bombshell has been coming a while, hitting its climax when Fitz ordered Mellie out of the Whitehouse in the season four finale, before firing Cyrus and dragging Olivia back into his bedroom. So, as you can imagine its all kicking off, but we imagine it’ll be handled, if Olivia has anything to do with it.
The new season of Scandal premieres in the USA on September 24, on ABC and will be available in the UK later on in the year.
