Special Look: “Scandal” Returns With “It’s Hard Out Here For A General”

The hiatus that began in mid-November is almost over.

ABC’s flagship drama “Scandal” resumes its fifth season on Thursday, February 11.

Entitled “It’s Hard Out Here for a General,” the episode picks up six months after the “Olitz” breakup.

Per the network’s official synopsis, “It’s been six months since Olivia and Fitz have broken up, and they are both handling their newfound freedom in very different ways. Meanwhile, the Pope and Associates team take on a case that could lead to a national crisis on the red-hot return of ‘Scandal.'”

In an effort to heighten anticipation for the big return, ABC shared behind-the-scenes photos and production stills from the episode. Those follow:
