ABC Renews ‘Scandal’, ‘Black-ish’ and ‘HTGAWM’

Yup, it’s handled – and there’s no shocker here.

Although ABC recently axed a few of its newest dramas (Forever and Resurrection included), all your favorites made the cut.

It was announced on Friday that Olivia Pope and friends (and enemies) will be back for season 5 of Scandal this fall, along with the casts of Shonda Rhimes’ other deliciously addictive hit shows Grey’s Anatomy and How To Get Away With Murder. Despite it being in a competing time slot with FOX’s smash hit Empire, ABC’s Black-ish proved it could hold its own and will also be returning for a second season.

The even better news: Now, no matter how Rhimes plays with fans emotions with cliffhangers on Thursday night’s Scandal season finale, answers will come this fall.
