Scandal Season 3 Episode Cutback! ABC Shortens Current Season Due to Kerry Washington Pregnancy
With a baby on the way for Kerry Washington, shooting upcoming season 3 episodes are proving to be quite difficult. As a result, ABC has decided to shorten the episode order for the current third season by 4 episodes. Scandal season 3 gets shafted! ABC has announced that they're cutting the current third season short by 4 episodes, reducing the episode order from 22 to just 18. Though the network declined to give an official reason for this cutback, sources speculate that it's due to the real-life pregnancy of the show's leading lady, Kerry Washington. Because Kerry is due this spring, shooting the final four originally-planned episodes would be next to impossible, considering Scandal producers have chosen to NOT incorporate her pregnancy into Olivia's storyline.
