'Scandal' Season 6 Air Date, Spoilers, News & Update: Fitz, Olivia Failed To Bring Mellie To White House; Trailer Reveals Major Details

The aftermath of the 2016 US Presidential Elections may still be reverberating up to the present day but that's not going to stop ABC's "Scandal" Season 6 from delivering an explosive season ahead. The new trailer and official synopsis for the political thriller revealed that the first ten minutes of the season premiere would be intense. Who is the unfortunate body in the exploding cabin, and will Mellie lose the presidency to Frankie  Vargas?

Official synopsis

The official synopsis for "Scandal" Season 6 has finally dropped, and it's tantalizing, to say the least. It revealed that Huck and Quinn will find themselves in the middle of a crime scene after the cabin they were exploring explodes, while Olivia Pope and Mellie Grant are caught within the whirlwind that is the presidential elections.

As previously reported, "Scandal" Season 6 will be kicking off with Election Night. But despite Mellie's skyrocketing popularity among fans, it may be that she loses the US Presidential Elections to mirror Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton's loss during the real elections. This is somewhat hinted at in the trailer when Mellie is seen yelling at Olivia saying she's done with the presidency.

Olivia and Fitz

And it does seem like she lost, especially since Olivia and Fitz Grant are seen consoling each other in a brief moment during the official "Scandal" Season 6 trailer. Previous reports suggested that Fitz will be helping out Olivia and the gang win the White House and prevent Cyrus Beene from getting one step closer to the presidency.

Of course, another reason the two are consoling each other is that they may be getting back together. What will happen then to poor Jake, who is currently running for vice presidency under the Republican ticket?

Excited for "Scandal' Season 6? Stay tuned for more news and updates.
