Washington is popular for her character Olivia Pope on ABC hit series “Scandal.” The sixth episode of the Shonda Rhimes show which was previously scheduled to premiere this fall, was pushed to 2017.

Speaking with Associated Press, Washington who is expecting her second child, stated that her pregnancy had nothing to do with the delay.

According to her, Rhimes found out about her pregnancy a couple weeks after her announcement about the new “Scandal” schedule.
