Scandal Gets Season Three Premiere Date; BET to Air Seasons 1 & 2

Olivia Pope and the rest of the Scandal cast left our jaws cocked with its epic season two finale. Lucky for us, the wait for season three ends this fall when the political drama returns to ABC on Thursday, October 3rd at 10 p.m. BET Networks also announced that it will air seasons one and two as part of a syndication deal with ABC.

Next month, they will kick off their collaboration with a day long marathon of both seasons.

“We’re thrilled to be joining forces with ABC in airing this dynamic series. Scandal is a cultural phenomenon that has resonated with viewers for the past two seasons and we’re excited to be part of its continued journey,” says BET chairman Debra Lee in a statement.

Gladiators, are you ready?
