It’s official, Gladiators: ABC’s Scandal is coming to an end after Season 7.

After rumblings surfaced last week of the news, Shonda Rimes confirmed the news.

“Deciding how to end a show is easy,” the Scandal creator and executive producer said in a statement. “Deciding when to finish is quite simple when the end date is years away. But actually going through with it?  Actually standing up to say: ‘This is it?’ Not so much. So, next year we are going all out. Leaving nothing on the table. Creating this world in celebration. We are going to handle the end the way we like to handle the important things in our ‘Scandal’ family: all together, white hats on, gladiators running full speed over a cliff.”

“Shonda has decided the series needs to come to a close, and while this is definitely a bittersweet moment for all of us gladiators, I have no doubt what she has in store for the final season will be as powerful as what’s come before, and we will be sure to honor that every step of the way,” said Channing Dungey, president, ABC Entertainment.
