Scandal Season 4 Spoilers!

Published

on

“We’re in a very different spot and everybody has been wiped clean, and anything goes, in a weird way,” Shonda Rhimes recently told The Hollywood Reporter. What does that really mean? Well, we’re hitting reset on the upcoming fourth season of Scandal. When the show returns from hiatus, everything will be different and in a way, that’s sort of a good thing.

We left off season 3 with Olivia Pope realizing she was the scandal, aka, probably the greatest realization ever. So what now? Olivia Pope and Associates doesn’t exist anymore and Liv ran away with Jake. The President has been re-elected, at the cost of losing his son. No one knows that Olivia’s father is actually a master manipulator whose behind every horrible thing that’s ever happened, except for Harrison, whose as good as dead at this point. How do we pick up from here?

How much more Scandal does Shonda have in her?

  • The beautiful thing about Shonda is that she tight lipped. She gives away tidbits of spoilers, without really giving away too much. She already knows how Scandal will end and she knows its not going to last 8 or 10 seasons. (Bummer.)

“I’m not worried about that at all. I’ve already decided when Scandal is ending. I think there’s only so much Scandal you can tell satisfactorily. The Fitz-Liv thing can only be told so long and in such a way. It’s not a 10-season or eight-season show. I’ve already decided how long that is and what that’s going to be. I’m not really worried about that,” she told THR. 

Does that mean it’ll be a good 4 more seasons, which should be the equivalent of four years= the president’s term? Or, will we still get a little peek into what Fitz is like when he isn’t President anymore? It would definitely be interesting to see his love affair with Liv play out outside of the White House. Do they finally get Vermont? Unfortunately, Shonda’s decisions aren’t at all affected by what the viewers want because she already knows how everything will end and she’s set herself parameters to make sure she sticks to the story she wants to tell. 

“It would be interesting. But I’ve given myself a parameter of what that is, and whether or not that means we end up deciding to stretch or shrink his presidency based on that remains to be seen,” she said. 

Is Harrison really dead?

  • This ones kind of a no brainer considering all the hoopla surrounding Columbus Short. 

“His absence will be explained definitively. What you think happened to his character happened to his character,” Rhimes admitted. 

That isn’t to say that his death isn’t tragic or sad. On the show, Harrison was a downright great Gladiator. Whose most affected by his death? “Olivia, really, but all the Gladiators are. It will be very devastating for Abby in a surprising way. You’ll see how she’s coping with it in a very different way than you would expect.”

How is everyone impacted by Olivia’s departure?

  • “Everyone has been betrayed, and the family has been blown apart. I love the idea that Liv really felt by getting on the plane she was doing what was best for everybody. She’s been tricked in a horrible way, and she’s very possibly completely wrong. What has happened to Harrison happened. What she discovers about that is going to be very bad. The betrayals are very bad, and how those betrayals change everyone is going to be permanent. Those changes will be permanent, and how she deals with that is going to be permanent. The world we are coming back to will be forever changed and forever different, and that is going to be very interesting. We’re really excited. I can’t wait for the first table read. Kerry keeps calling me and going, “What’s happening?””, Rhimes explained. 

Hucks family is alive! How does Huck deal?

  • [Finding out his family is alive] “It’s going to have a profound affect, possibly not in the way you think. Huck is a very damaged soul in every aspect of his life, and he came to terms with something; he let go of those people. He let go of the fact that they existed. That’s what I love about the [season three] finale, when he says, “They didn’t exist anymore.” He wasn’t sure they were alive, so he let go of the idea that they existed. To discover that they were real is almost devastating to him, because he had stopped fighting. If you stop fighting for something and then discover it was out there and you should have been fighting all along, that’s horrible. It’s going to be devastating for him,” Rhimes said.

 

Much of season 3 focused more on the Gladiators individual story-lines rather then the love affair between Liv and Fitz. Shonda is super excited to get back to Olivia-centric storytelling, which she had to veer away from because of Kerry’s pregnancy. I’m all for the Olivia storyline, but I don’t want to fall off with the other potential story lines either. We now know the world doesn’t only revolve around Liv. She doesn’t have it all together like we thought. In a way, Abbey took over Liv’s role this season and I hope she holds onto that bravery and freedom. The Huck storyline should be really interesting because now Quinn’s feelings are also in the mix. It’s not just solo Huck taking on this realization. He’s fallen in love and so has she. I love me some Liv and Fitz, but I also like the others too.

Walker Recap Season 3 Episode 8 Cry Uncle

The CW is gearing up for its spring TV season—and April showers are clearly going to be bringing back many highly-anticipated shows by fans. 

With plenty of CW originals going on the chopping block last year, two survivors, Walker and All American, finally have airdates for what will likely be their final seasons. 

All American Season 6 will be gracing TV screens on Monday, April 1 at 8/7c (no, this isn’t an April Fools joke), as Walker returns with Season 4 on Wednesday, April 3! 

Two surviving shows that are visibly absent from the lineup, however, are All American: Homecoming and Superman & Lois.

It’s unclear why the shows are being held back, but the hope is that they will now mark the network’s fall TV season.

As for new shows, Walker will be joined by crime drama Sight Unseen starring The Originals‘ Daniel Gillies. 

There’s also no word on a second season for The CW’s Sullivan’s Crossing starring Chad Michael Murray, Scott Patterson and Morgan Kohan, though it seems the series will be debuting in April in Canada, so fingers cross a fall return is possibly stateside. 

Here’s the full lineup for The CW spring 2024:

MONDAY, APRIL 1
8 pm All American (Season 6 premiere)
9 pm Lovers and Liars (series premiere)

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3
8 pm Walker (Season 4 premiere)

9 pm Lovers and Liars (series premiere encore/time slot premiere)

9 pm 100 Days to Indy (Season 2 premiere)

TUESDAY, APRIL 30
8 pm Police 24/7 (series premiere)

It’s Happening—’Wizards of Waverly Place’ Is Getting a Sequel With Selena Gomez

Published

on

In the words of the Wizards of Waverly Place theme song—yes, please

Deadline exclusively reported that Disney is reviving its hit series, starring Selena Gomez. The network has ordered a pilot for a sequel to the teen show that ran from 2007 to 2012 on Disney Channel.

And there’s definitely something to be more excited about because it’s set to be executive-produced by original stars Gomez and on-screen brother David Henrie.

That’s not all! Gomez will reportedly guest star the pilot episode to reprise her iconic role as Alex Russo, while Henrie will be a series regular in the role of Justin Russo. 

Rounding out the new cast will be Janice LeAnn Brown (Billie), Alkalio Thiele (Roman Russo), and Mimi Gianopulos (Giada) who will play Justin’s wife and kids. 

The series, hailing from the writers and producers of Raven’s Home (another spinoff of an early Disney Channel show, That’s So Raven, that found a second life) Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas, will kick off with a mysterious incident as WizTech, where Justin works after surrendering his wizard powers to lead a human life. 

However, Billie soon arrives as a powerful young wizard seeking training and guidance, forcing Justin to get back to magic to save the Wizard World. 

Henrie confirmed the news on social media, sharing a photo of the pilot episode and captioning it, “The Russo’s are excited to become a part of your family, once again, but we’ve grown 😊 2024, the year magic comes back! 🪄”

Gomez also took to her Instagram Story to share a throwback photo with Henrie, writing, “We’re back.”

It’s unclear if other members of the original cast who played Justin’s parents and brother—Maria Canals-Barrera, David DeLuise, and Jake T. Austin—along with Alex’s bestie Jennifer Stone will reprise their roles. 

But this is something worthy of celebration for all the millennials who grew up with the Russo family!

‘Roswell, New Mexico’ Star Jeanine Mason Shares Sweet Update From Wedding

Roswell, New Mexico Season Premiere Review Steal My Sunshine Season 4 Episode 1

Jeanine Mason is officially off the market!

The Roswell, New Mexico star, who announced her engagement back in March 2023, shared sweet wedding photos from her recent nuptials.

The So You Think You Can Dance champion is said to have married husband Nicholas late last year. 

She shared two intimate photos on Instagram, one of the duo kissing after they seemingly exchanged “I do’s” as their guests looked on, along with a second shot of the two cozying up to each other on the subway.

“So many thank yous to come. But for now, just one to this unbelievable man. I love you husband,” the Upload actress captioned the post, which you can see right here.

Brides got more of the scoop on the newlyweds and their big day, noting that she and Nicholas met on a dating app and later exhaling vows on the stoop of their New York City home, which is also where he proposed. 

“We thought, how fun would it be to bring our favorite people along for a weekend in our lives here in New York City and to fill all our neighborhood spots with our families and friends,” she told the outlet. “We imagined, ‘What would our ideal weekend be with our favorite people?’ and then, ‘How do we want to be married?’ We really threw tradition or answering to any standard out the window.”

With that said, they told guests to go all out with their outfits, telling them to “do the MOST.” 

Nicholas serves a major in the Army Reserves following years of active duty, so he opted for his military dress uniform.

They also used the day as an opportunity to hire as many artists as they possibly could, including a violinist to perform during the ceremony, local artists for illustrations, and florists for flowers and arches.

As for the public transit choice—that’s how everyone got to the reception! 

“We always knew we’d take the subway to the reception but this was the perfect way to start the party,” she said. 

Since Mason is Cuban, there was also plenty of music and dancing on a “large dance floor,” and she even danced the salsa with her dad as it’s a “huge part of our culture and the way we celebrate. I think we made the Cubans proud.”

Her co-stars immediately jumped into the comment section to share their congratulations—warming the hearts of The CW fans all around—as Michael Vlamis wrote “VLAMIS GOT MARRIED!!!!” Tyler Blackburn shared a series of heart emojis, Heather Hemmens wrote “So beautiful! Congrats you two!” and Lily Cowles added, “So gorgeous! Felicitaciones mi amor.”

Congrats to the happy couple—we wish you all the best on this new journey!
