'Scandal' Returns To Primetime: This Black-Centric Network Will Re-Air All Seven Seasons

Guess what gladiators! Scandal is on its way back to television thanks to Bounce. Get ready to relive the entire series from start to finish starting November 12, when every season will begin airing on Bounce Monday through Friday at 8 p.m. ET.

The cable network has struck a deal with Walt Disney Director-to-Consumer & International to air all seven seasons of the ABC hit series starring Kerry Washington. The series marks a turning point for Bounce since it's described by the network's general manager Cheryl Harrison as "Bounce's most-significant off-network series acquisition to date."

"It is a smash hit that featured a powerful and complex Black female lead in a broad-based drama designed for the masses," she said in a statement. "We are thrilled to add this iconic series to our programming slate."

Scandal became one of Shonda Rhimes' most popular series and kept fans enthralled each season as Washington's character, Olivia Pope, and her team of crisis management "fixers" helped Washington government elite keep their scandals at bay. The show also starred Tony Goldwyn, Bellamy Young, Joe Morton, Darby Stanchfield, Guillermo Diaz, Katie Lowes, Jeff Perry, Joshua Malina, Cornelius Smith Jr. and George Newbern.
