ABC is expected to make the official announcement at its Upfront presentation in New York City next week.

In the April issue of Glamour, Kerry Washington played coy about the series’ end date.

Washington went on to say how much the role of Olivia Pope changed her life. “It’s impossible to say that Olivia Pope hasn’t been one of the most transformative roles for me,” she said. “I’ve never played a character for this long.”

In an interview with NPR, Rhimes admitted, “I feel like there is a finite amount of ‘Scandal’ to be told. I know what the end of ‘Scandal’ will be, and I feel really good about that. And I can see where the end point is. And I don’t think I’m going to change that…I know how long it will be, but we’ll see.”
