The show, which made history as the first network drama to have a black showrunner, a black woman as the lead, and be based on the story of a real life black political insider, won over audiences with its addicting storyline and adept acting.
At the end of last season, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) said she was done cleaning up the messes of Washington D.C.’s elite, but of course, she gets pulled right back in.
According to Rhimes, season 2 will once again center around the troubled relationship between Pope and the President.
“I think it’s a very fraught relationship… I feel like that couple, they clearly have this relationship that is very permanent, that’s not going to go anywhere, and yet the obstacles that keep them apart are huge and fairly insurmountable. [His wife] Mellie [Bellamy Young] is pregnant and there’s a lot going on.”
This season will also expose the truth behind a few well-hidden secrets like who is Quinn Perkins and what exactly First Lady Mellie is up to.
