First look: ‘Scandal’ season 5 trailer

Gladiators, round up! It’s almost “Scandal” time!

On Thursday night (Sept. 10), ABC decided to give fans a sneak peek of the hot and heavy action to come by tweeting a trailer of the upcoming fifth season of the hit Shonda Rhimes produced primetime drama.

The trailer features Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) aka “Olitz” together while Etta James’ signature ballad “At Last” plays in the background and a later scene shows Fitz serving Mellie (Bellamy Young) divorce papers.

Buckle up, Gladiators. It looks to be a season full of drama to keep us on the edge of our seats.

Scandal” returns to the Shondaland “TGIT” lineup on ABC on Thursday, Sept. 24 at 9/8c.
