“Gladiators” everywhere will rejoice come January, after ABC on Thursday revealed that Scandal’s long-awaited sixth season will premiere January 19 at 9 p.m. ET.
The popular show, which has developed a loyal cult following, will air between the winter premieres of Grey’s Anatomy and How to Get Away With Murder, both of which come from Shonda Rhimes’ Shondaland Productions.
