Its less than a month until ABC’s Gladiators in Suits’ of the addictive drama, Scandal, returns to our TV screens. Details are slowing beginning to leak out about the highly anticipated new season. Our friends at TV Line got the scoop on the upcoming season of the political thriller and a look at the first promotional episode still for the season four premiere, featured above. We see what appears to be an intense conversation in the Oval office between President Grant (Tony Goldwyn) and Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry). Perhaps the pair are contemplating the whereabouts of our beloved ‘Lady in the White Hat,’ Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington), who left D.C. behind at the end of last season.

Series creator, Shonda Rhimes also shared a few juicy details about the show’s highly awaited return, “Basically, when the show returns, “Everything is a pile of rubble,” Rhimes continues, “and Rowan is standing on top of it.” Each season Scandal takes us on a different path of discovery with each of its main characters, as to what fans should expect for season 4, Rhimes shares, “There is an organizing principle that brings us back, in a weird way, to more of where we were at the very beginning of the [series].” With the murder of Fitz and Mellie’s son Jerry Jr. we expect the grieving to play a huge part in this season, it’s the how it would be played out and Rhimes hints of season 4 Mellie being much more than ‘drunk Mellie’ has extremely excited, “the emergence of a very different kind of Mellie, who I kind love almost more than I love ‘Drunk Mellie,'”says Rhimes.
With so much tragedy left to deal with in Season 3 will Fitz and Gladiators find out in the fourth season just how much command Rowan Pope had in the murder of his son? Well, it won’t take long, fans only have to wait til, “the first half of the season,” confirms Rhimes.
