Watch: ‘Scandal’ Season 5 Trailer Teases Fitz Divorcing Mellie & Kissing Olivia

Scandal” doesn’t return until Sept. 24, but on Thursday evening — in true “TGIT” form — ABC tweeted out the first trailer for Season 5.

The new video gives a juicy glimpse into the new episodes, which will see Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) together — so much so that Fitz hands divorce papers to his wife, First Lady Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young), in the first footage from the fifth season.

The Season 4 finale last May ended with Fitz and Olivia kissing on the White House’s balcony, taking a cliffhanging turn for on-and-off relationship.

More Gladiators are seen in the trailer, though the majority of the 30-second teaser is focused on the fan-favorite couple “Olitz” in bed with each other.

“Scandal” returns to ABC with Shondaland’s “TGIT” lineup on Thursday, Sept. 24 at 9/8c.
