So if you saw the finale of "Scandal", you know that the fate of Columbus Short's character, Harrison, was left up in the air. Well spoiler alert....he's NOT returning for the next season!! 

Short confirmed in an official statement, "At this time I must confirm my exit from a show I've called home for 3 years, with what is the most talented ensemble on television today. I would like to first thank [creator] Shonda Rhimes for the opportunity to work with such an amazing cast. Thank you GLADIATORS, who have supported me throughout my entire career and of course to ABC and Shondaland, for allowing me to play such a pivotal role in the Scandal series. I have enjoyed every single minute of it. Everything must come to an end and unfortunately the time has come for Harrison Wright to exit the canvas. I wish nothing but the best for Shonda, Kerry Washington and the rest of the cast, who have become like a second family to me in such a short amount of time. For this, I will forever be grateful". 

Creator and writer, Shonda Rhimes, has said that his departure is for "creative reasons" but with all of his recent personal scandals, we're not so sure if that's the whole truth. In case you missed it, he's had some run-ins with the law for domestic abuse and other fights. What are YOUR thoughts?? Will you miss him on the show?? Let us know on our Facebook!
