Looks like Shondaland fans will get a crossover soon.
Scandal star Kerry Washington and How To Get Away With Murder (HTGAWM) star Viola Davis shared photos of themselves on opposite sets on Wednesday. The actresses —who have shined in their roles on two Shonda Rhimes’ shows— have never done a crossover for their ABC shows.
This seventh season is the last for Scandal, which ends in the spring. HTGAWM is in its fourth season.
“Hey Ms @violadavis Check it out. This spot look familiar?! Where are you?,” Washington said on Wednesday via Instagram.
Washington also posted a photo of the script and table read to tease the upcoming episode.
Davis also shared an image of herself on the Scandal set, looking excited to sit on made-up White House Oval Office desk.
As noted by Deadline, an April Fool’s online story in 2016 about a three-way TGIT crossover between Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and HTGAWM got fans pretty excited, indicating strong built-in interest in a possible stunt.
This time the crossover appears to be very real. We’ll be watching both shows to find out!
Both Scandal and HTGAWM return Thursday, Jan 18 on ABC.
