The Scandal, How to Get Away With Murder crossover is happening

The Scandal, How to Get Away With Murder crossover is happening”

Power will be on display when Washington super-fixer Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) meets up with top-notch attorney and law professor Annelise Keating (Viola Davis) in a Scandal-How to Get Away With Murder crossover later this TV season.

"At the beginning of the season, my writers and I were planning out Viola [Davis'] entire arc and something in her story organically came up that was very appropriate for Scandal", Pete Nowalk, showrunner on HTGAWM, told Deadline.

"Hey Ms @violadavis check it out", Washington wrote in the caption.

This Scandal-HTGAWM joint episode will be the first crossover of the Shondaland trio now on ABC. She posted a photo of herself, seemingly in Olivia Pope garb, on the set of HTGAWM.

Meanwhile, the Oscar-winning HTGAWM star responded with a photo on her Instagram, leaning on the president's desk on the Scandal set.

Nowalk confirmed that Davis and Washington will share scenes together, and that the two-part crossover, which will air back-to-back across Scandal and HTGAWM, will feature other characters from both shows crossing over within one setting.

Producer Shonda Rhimes broke the news on Twitter, writing: "People it's happening" with the hashtag "How to Get Away with Scandal". "@petenowalk, you ready for this?" The stars from Shondaland shows Grey's Anatomy (which, yes, is still airing), Scandal, and How to Get Away With Murder frequently appeared in ABC's Thank God It's Thursday promos and publicity events, but they have not guest-starred in each other's shows until now.

There is no airdate for the crossover episodes as yet.

All three TGIT shows return with new episodes January 18.
