ABC Cuts ‘Scandal’ Season Three Episodes for Kerry Washington’s Baby


ABC cuts Scandal season 3 episodes

The last thing Gladiators want is less Scandal, but ABC is doing just that. E! News reports the TV network is cutting its episode order from 22 to 18 as Kerry Washington will allegedly give birth in the spring. The Emmy-nominated actress was originally scheduled to film this season’s last four episodes next year, but with a growing baby bump, that just won’t be possible.

This also means a pregnant Olivia Pope storyline is out of the question. Too bad: would have made for some mind-blowing television!
