Kerry Washington in Scandal

Good news for all you ‘Scandal’ fans. ABC recently announced that it will expand the political drama–which has kept fans on edge–to a full season, increasing its episodes from 13 to 22.

According to Shadow & Act, ‘Scandal’ has continually increased its viewership, which improved 12-percent last week among women 18-49, and continues to be a big hit on social media.

Before the second session began, Shonda Rhimes—‘Scandal’s’ creator—said she’d be able to expand on the series’ plot into two season-long story arcs if she had more time.

“We want to keep telling stories in that manner and because we’re doing 13 episodes and if we get more than that, we’ll be telling two different season-long arcs… We came back nervous — can we top what we did last season — and now we’re all really excited because we figured out how we can.”

Well, now she does, and we can’t wait to see what she does with it.

Are you a ‘Scandal’ junkie? What would you like to see happen in a longer season?
