Scandal is returning with new episodes later this month, debuting on Presto.
Season 5 mid-season episodes will be express from the US from February 12th.
Presto already has seasons 1-4 and will continue to be the exclusive SVOD home of all episodes from seasons 1-5.
Presto TV CEO Shaun James said, “It’s no surprise that Scandal has been one of Presto’s breakout hits following its remarkable run overseas. It’s diverse cast continues to deliver amazing performances and each season brings more edge-of-your-seat drama. Fans keen to catch up on the latest Scandal will be thrilled to know that Presto is adding every future episode express from the U.S., along with the first four and a half seasons already streaming exclusively on Presto.”
Scandal comes from the creative mind of multi-award-winning producer Shonda Rhimes (Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder), Scandal stars Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope, a former media consultant to the President, who has dedicated her life to protecting and defending the public images of the nation’s elite by keeping their secrets under wraps. Pope leads a team who specialise in cleaning up the lives of other people, but who can’t seem to do the same for themselves.
Joining Pope in her political maneuvers are associates Quinn (Katie Lowes), who has a complicated secret history, and former CIA hacker extraordinaire Huck (Guillermo Diaz). Scandal also features Elizabeth North (Australia’s Portia De Rossi) as the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) and First Lady Melody “Mellie” Grant (Bellamy Young).
