When does season 2 of scandal start???

Season two of Shonda Rhimes' political drama Scandal premieres on Thursday, September 27 on ABC. Season one of Scandal had a short seven-episode run, with ratings that exceeded expectations.

Scandal stars Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope, a high-powered "fixer" lawyer with a resourceful crisis management team that cleans up after a president that has a few skeletons in his closet. The cliffhanger at the end of the first season questioned the real identity of Quinn and it most definitely will be answered in the second season premiere.

Tune in when Scandal returns on Thursday, September 27th at 9pm to find out who Quinn is and what other problems Olivia Pope and her team will have to deal with!
