So, what are some of the details on the new season? Vulture reports showrunner Shonda Rhimes revealing:

Because of the way we laid out this season, we really do have this beautiful way of telling this season this year where we’re really stepping back in time and going forward in time and seeing things from different characters’ perspectives. It’s not really about crazy things happening to the characters, it’s about where they come to after all this time … It’s very different from any other season we’ve had, so I can’t really judge it against what we’ve done before or what we may do.

Also, with a new person coming into the presidency, this means that Fitz will be out of a job. Vulture reports actor Tony Goldwyn’s take on his character, as he explained:

This is just me, I don’t speak for Shonda, but from the very beginning one of Fitz’s personal struggles: I thought he thought he could be more effective outside of the presidency than in it. I think he’s always had a fantasy with what he could actually do.

This season will be shorter and it will be interesting to see how Kerry Washington hides her real-life pregnancy or if the writers will work it into the story line. We’re guessing that the pregnancy will not be addressed, especially after Washington said on The Ellen Show that she’d be hiding her bump with, “Big coats, big bags … hiding behind different body parts of other actors.”
