The Scandal season 6 premiere date meant for January 19 is bumped off its schedule in favor of a feature about Donald Trump.
Fans are not happy about the sudden move of the Scandal season 6 premiere date. Indeed, many looked forward to it after a long wait. It has been seven months since the series went off the air last year.
Thus, its return along with the two other Shonda Rhimes’ productions was a red-letter day for fans. The recently released teaser even featured the TGIT women promoting the forthcoming event.
Scandal Season 6 premiere date gives way to Trump
Alas, fans of the three shows have to wait to get their fix until January 26. Entertainment Weekly reports Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, and How to Get Away with Murder gave way to America’s First Family: The Trumps Go to Washington.
The one-hour special is in line with the upcoming inauguration of US president-elect Donald Trump. As it turns out, ABC News will air a pre-inauguration special at 10 p.m. ET. Before it, the network will rerun episodes of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal instead starting at 8 p.m. ET.
Earlier reports said the return of TGIT was supposed to boost ratings for the network. This comes after its Thursday lineup fell short of expectations when Scandal did not return in the fall.
Fans Want to Hire B613
Fans are not happy about the change in the Scandal season 6 premiere date. Indeed, the comments posted under the E! News article are piling up. Several readers said Trump’s presidency was already messing up their life. Other readers had something more serious in mind to deal with the change in the Scandal season 6 premiere date. In fact, it would involve the help of Olivia Pope’s father and his covert government agency, B613.
“Ima need B-613 TO HANDLE THIS! No questions asked! It’s to better the republic lmao!” Vincent Limon wrote. Interestingly, the return of Scandal will reveal who between Mellie Grant and Francisco Vargas won the show’s fictional presidential elections. Earlier spoilers hint at a possible shocking twist to the outcome in the Scandal season 6 release date.
