Kerry Washington’s pregnancy has rippled across both social media and TV’s upcoming fall season.

First, the actress announced Tuesday that she’s taking a “teeny break from social media. The Scandal star shared her decision in the caption of an Instagram video. “It’s time for me to take a teeny break from social media,” wrote Washington. “Feeling called to be a bit more quiet and still.”

Her words were accompanied by a clip of a heart drawn in the sand fading as the ocean tide rises.

Later Tuesday, ABC announced that Scandal’s season 6 premiere will be pushed from fall 2016 to  midseason, due to her pregnancy.

The move will leave a hole in Shonda Rhimes’ TGIT lineup. According to Variety, Grey’s Anatomy keeps its Thursday 8 p.m. timeslot for Season 13, and Viola Davis’ How To Get Away with Murder keeps its 10 p.m. slot for Season 3. New drama Notorious will replace “Scandal” at 9 p.m.

ABC renewed Rhimes’ The Catch for Season 2 and picked up a new Shondaland show, Still Star-Crossed.
