Everything you need to know before watching Scandal season 3 – in less than five minutes

Gladiators in suits, white hats, political schemes and illicit encounters in the Oval Office...

If you’ve forgotten all about the biggest scandal to ever hit the White House – or you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Olivia Pope and her team of gladiators in suits yet – never fear. 


Yes, the third series might be launching on Sky Living tonight, but it’ll only take you four minutes and 24 seconds to catch up. 

Seriously. It might be a complicated and incredibly fast-paced show, but Sky have very effectively managed to squish all the super important plot points from seasons one and two down into a very sizeable chunk. 

Season three premiere, here we come…!

Scandal series three starts tonight at 9:00pm on Sky Living
