Kerry Washington and Viola Davis Tease Scandal-How To Get Away With Murder Crossover
Kerry Washington and Viola Davis teased crossover episodes of their shows Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder, which reportedly are in the works at ABC
Two of Shondaland’s biggest stars are coming together for one OMG-worthy night of TGIT.
Washington, 40, kicked things off with her shot — posing in full Olivia Pope gear from what looked like HTGAWM‘s courtroom set. “Hey Ms @violadavis ❤️ check it out,” she wrote. “This spot look familiar?! Where are you?”
An excited Davis, 52, followed suit next — smiling from what could be Scandal‘s Oval Office set. “Hey @KerryWashington, guess where I am?!” she responded.
EP Shonda Rhimes also into the action on Twitter, sharing a photo of a script of the crossover.
“People. It’s happening,” she wrote. “You ready for this? #TGITCrossover #HowToGetAwayWithScandal.”
This will mark the first time both shows staged a crossover. While Washington and Davis have frequently appeared together in publicity promos (alongside Ellen Pompeo from Rhimes’ other ABC show, Grey’s Anatomy), their characters have never existed in the same television universe.
Grey’s Anatomy, meanwhile, staged multiple crossover episodes with 2007 spinoff Private Practice — which aired for six seasons on ABC.
