Pregnant Kerry Washington's "Scandal" Season to be Cut Short

Posted Sunday December 8, 2013 4:16 PM GMT

Causing mixed feelings for fans of the hit show, Kerry Washington's pregnancy means there will be less episodes of "Scandal" this season.

The 36-year-old actress was revealed to be pregnant back in October along with her husband Nnamdi Asomugha.

Originally ordered for 22 episodes, the ABC series will instead air only 18 episodes for season three.

However, viewers still have plenty of Olivia Pope to see as nine episodes are left, including next week's big mid-season finale.
