Major changes are teased for the upcoming season. According to a News Everyday report, a poster for Scandal Season 6 shows Olivia Pope with a tagline that the balance of power is about to shift. This is a small but powerful clue. This is because the last season ended with a presidential election about to be held.
The main story arc for Season 6 is being kept under wraps, but speculations suggest that the show’s new fictional president will be revealed promptly.
