ABC Orders More Episodes of Scandal

Kerry Washington's hit series will run for a total of 22 episodes this season. 

ABC has given a full season order to Shonda Rhimes' Scandal, meaning its current second season will add another 9 episodes to the previously ordered 13 episodes, for a total of 22 episodes of the political fixer drama.

Obviously it's doing very well for ABC. The Thursday night drama has grown in audience/ratings from week to week this season, jumping 12% last week, compared to the previous episode, with Women 18-49, to equal the series' 2nd-highest-ever rating. 

Recall before the season started, Rhimes stated in an interview that the second season would start with just one season-long arc, and could maybe have 2, if the series was expanded beyond the initial 13-episode order.
