Gladiators, the wait is almost over. New episodes of “Scandal” will premiere in exactly 11 weeks!

According to ABC, the third season of the beloved political thriller will return on Thursday, October 3rd at 10 p.m.

This news comes just days after BET announced its new syndication deal with ABC, which will allow the Viacom network to air reruns of the hit series. BET will kick off the deal with marathons of the first two seasons of “Scandal” in August.

“We’re thrilled to be joining forces with ABC in airing this dynamic series,” BET chairman Debra Lee said in a statement. “Scandal is a cultural phenomenon that has resonated with viewers for the past two seasons and we’re excited to be part of its continued journey.”

We just can’t wait to see what curveballs Shonda Rhimes throws at us in the upcoming season! Let the countdown for more Olivia, Fitz, Millie, Cyrus, Huck, Abby, Harrison, Quinn and David begin.
