Get ready, Gladiators, because a whole lot more “Scandal” is coming your way.
The BET Network has signed a syndication deal to begin airing the hit ABC series as soon as next month, according to “The Hollywood Reporter.” To get fans revved up for season 3, the network will first air two 14-hour marathons.
The first marathon is set for Saturday, August 10 from 8am to 10pm, which will cover the first season and several season two episodes.
More of season two will roll out the following Saturday at the same time, and from there, BET will begin airing a two-hour block on Wednesday nights at 9pm beginning on August 21.
Of course, that isn’t the only major “Scandal” news to celebrate. The series scored two Emmy nominations yesterday, first for series lead Kerry Washington for her role as Olivia Pope in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a drama category.
The second nomination went to Dan Bucatinsky for his recurring guest role as James, the on-again-off-again husband of White House Chief of Staff Cyrus Beene on the D.C.-set series.
“Scandal” will return to ABC on Thursday, October 3 at 10pm. Are you caught up? What’s your favorite episode? Share your top picks in the comments section below.
