Scandal Season 4 premiere date is on September 25, 2014, a Tuesday, at the 9:00 PM time slot, as announced by ABC, right after Grey's Anatomy and before How to Get Away with Murder. The first episode of Scandal Season 4 is entitled "Randy, Red, Superfreak and Julia."
In an interview with TV Guide, show creator and executive producer Shonda Rhimes revealed some major Scandal Season 4 spoilers. She said, "One of the things that we did specifically when we created the show is slowly deploy people's stories. It was purposeful. Season 4 is Abby's season. That was by design. A lot of what we know about Abby happens this season. A lot of what we discover about her and see about her back story will happen as we tell Abby's story." Abby is Olivia Pope's team member who helped cover the election rigging by stealing the voter machine memory card from David Rosen. Last season, we saw her confess to David what she did.
Scandal's Season 4 will see also see a return to the "case of the week" format that was in place during Seasons 1 and 2 but was not used for much of Season 3 because of Kerry Washington's (who plays Olivia Pope) pregnancy. In another interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Rhimes said, "Definitely more of a case of the week, but also literally we can tell a story in which our characters are in a room together. In season two and season one, Kerry is in almost every scene, and that's not possible in season three. So it just necessitated a different mode of storytelling, and we're very excited to get back to Olivia-centric storytelling."
As further noted by Rhimes in that talk with The Hollywood Reporter, "What I loved about when we get to the end of the season, we pushed a very strange reset button. Everybody's life got wiped clean in a very odd way....We're in a very different spot and everybody has been wiped clean, and anything goes, in a weird way. It was very freeing and terrifying." So will Season 4 be taking off with a fresh restart? After all, nothing less than a reboot of the show is in order after Season 3's explosive finale left everything broken and in pieces.
