Fans are now waiting for the coming of "Scandal" Season 6 as ABC recently launched its TGIT or Thank God It's Thursday schedule. However, this is the first time that the political thriller is not included in the said TV timeslot and it looks like fans are a little upset.

ABC's TGIT Schedule

It has been known that "Scandal" Season 6 has been moved into a different air date because of Kerry Washington's, who plays the lead role Olivia, pregnancy. The usual timeslot of the favorite-TV series has been occupied by "Notorious," although fans believed that ABC's TGIT is not the same without Shonda Rhimes' show. Since 2013, viewers were used to seeing "Scandal" as part of the network's Thursday prime, as per Hollywood Life.

The supposed-to-be schedule of "Scandal" Season 6 is acquired by "Notorious" starred by Piper Perabo, Daniel Sunjata and Ryan Guzman. It has the same "Scandal" theme, so fans wouldn't miss the show that much. It is also the perfect watch in between "Grey's Anatomy" and "How to Get Away with Murder."

Olivia, Cyrus Will Be Mortal Enemies?

Meanwhile, in the return of "Scandal" Season 6, fans are about to witness the battle between Olivia and Cyrus (Jeff Perry). As per the Christian Post, the two have been friends for a long while, but it looks like their friendship is about to end. The role of Kerry Washington got the surprise of her life when she learned that her pal is about to run for the vice presidential seat.

Hence, Olivia will do everything to take down Cyrus even if it they turn out to be from friends to mortal enemies. This will also be the time that viewers are about to see the reunion of Fritz and Olivia. As he is now living the presidency, there are swirling rumors that the state leader will pursue his feelings to Olivia. "Scandal" Season 6 will return in midseason of 2017 on ABC.
