Are you ready for season finale season? Me neither! Not at all! In no way am I emotionally prepared. Take me back to premiere season, TV gods! But, ah, the gods are not so kind. And yes, we've got some time left to burn. But ABC just announced the season finale dates for Scandal , Grey's Anatomy , Once Upon A Time, and a hell of a lot more. And the Scandal one's actually pretty damn soon.
The Shondas — aka the two shows run by Shonda Rhimes, Grey's Anatomy and Scandal — will not air their finales at the same time this year despite airing in the same lineup. This isn't a surprise: It was announced late last year that Kerry Washington's pregnancy would result in a shortened season for the show. Now, Scandal's season finale's set to air April 17.
Here are the other dates, in order of occurrence:
- The Neighbors, April 11
- Scandal, April 17
- Last Man Standing, April 25
- Resurrection, May 4
- Once Upon a Time, Revenge, May 11
- Castle, May 12
- Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Goldbergs, Trophy Wife, May 13
- Suburgatory, Nashville, May 14
- Grey’s Anatomy, May 15
- Shark Tank, May 16
- America’s Funniest Home Videos, May 18
- Dancing With the Stars, May 20
- The Middle, Modern Family, Mixology, May 21
It's just now striking me how strange ABC's lineup is. Whoever thought Trophy Wife would pair well with S.H.I.E.L.D? Or Nasvhille with Suburgatory. Move those overdramatic country singers to Scandal night, dudes.
