It won’t be long before Scandal is back on our television screens and this brand new poster for season 6 is bound to get you pumped for whatever Olivia Pope has got up her sleeve this time.
The first poster for Scandal season 6 offers us our first look at Olivia (Kerry Washington) who clearly means business.
The image features our favorite D.C. crisis manager set against a black backdrop. Fittingly, Olivia is wearing one of her signature white suits while she stares intensely into the camera. The brand new poster also features the ominous tagline, “The balance of power is about to shift.”
Fans have been waiting with baited breath to hear the results of last season’s presidential election, which pegged Mellie (Bellamy Young) and Jake (Scott Foley) against Vargas (Ricardo Chavira) and Cyrus (Jeff Perry). With the results of the election set to be revealed in the premiere episode, it’s safe to assume that the tagline could be a reference to this. At the same time, knowing Olivia Pope, we’re betting there’s way more to it than meets the eye.
We can’t wait to see how Olivia and the rest of the gang handles the aftermaths of election night when Scandal returns in a little over a month!
Scandal season 6 premiers Thursday, Jan. 19 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
