The promo teases Shondaland series Scandal’s seventh and final season, which premieres October 5 on ABC.

The end of the show comes as Netflix hired Shonda Rhimes away from her longtime home of ABC, where she also produces such series as Grey’s Anatomy and How to Get Away with Murder in addition to Scandal. Those series and the ones in development will remain on ABC until they conclude, while new projects will air on Netflix as part of the multi-year deal. Netflix also has streaming rights to the back-ends of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal.
