What do you think of the "Grey's Anatomy" spin off news?

ABC has officially confirmed that Shonda Rhimes political thriller Scandal - the drama that helped usher in an era of programming that better reflects society - would end with its previously announced seventh season.

Broadcast in Ireland on Sky Living, in the USA, Scandal is now a part of ABC's Thank God Its Thursday line-up of Shonda Rhimes' dramas along with Grey's Anatomy and How to Get Away with Murder.

No word yet on what episode will introduce the characters of Unnamed Seattle Firefighter Love, Life and Happiness Show, but THR notes that in the season finale of Grey's Anatomy, there's an explosion at Seattle Grace. News, the spinoff (which hasn't yet got an official title) "will follow these fearless men and women-from captain to newest recruit-as they risk their lives and their hearts both in the line of duty and off the clock". The as-yet untitled spinoff would follow firefighters in the same fictionalized Seattle as Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. "Where we end this season, it makes me so excited about next season", she gushed.

Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes has said for a long time that she knows how the show will end-still, we just didn't expect the end to come so soon.

For six years, Olivia Pope and her gladiators have ruled fans' heart for their command over the tricky issues in and outside of the White House.

The new spin-off series will see Shonda as producer, whilst former Grey's writer Stacy McKee has stepped in as showrunner. The star also got married and had two children during the show's run. Helping to re-invigorate ABC's Thursday night, "Scandal" has won its 9 p.m. hour in all 14 weeks since its January return.

Still, Scandal will leave an incredible legacy behind when it closes up shop for good during the 2017-18 broadcast season.
