Scandal Season 1 and Season 2 Airs On BET In August

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

This is a very smart move for the cable network BET.  Scandal is only one of the hottest TV drama series that has folks addicted and taking a day and a half to grasp just what happened.

According to The Hollywood Report:

BET will debut the first two seasons of the ABC Studios drama with a marathon starting in August, continuing to air episodes up until the third-season premiere on ABC in the fall (a formal third-season premiere date has not been announced yet). The agreement extends season-one Scandal episodes to BET in addition to Netflix, where they’ve been streaming since debuting in September 2012. It marks the first time season two will air outside of ABC and Financial terms of the deal were not immediately available. 

THR also mentions Scandal being on BET will broaden more African Americans to ABC and I don’t completely agree with this because I think it’s the other way around.

The move will likely help ABC broaden the serialized drama’s audience among its core demographic, though Rhimes has been vocal about the series not specifically being a show catering to African-Americans.  

BET chairman Debra Lee says “We’re thrilled to be joining forces with ABC in airing this dynamic series,Scandal is a cultural phenomenon that has resonated with viewers for the past two seasons and we’re excited to be part of its continued journey.”

Scandal marks BET’s first syndicated scripted drama acquisition.

I enjoyed watching the new shows on BET, including “The Real Husbands of Hollywood” starring Kevin Hart, and now the new Gabrielle Union series “Being Mary Jane.“ Gabrielle Union also tried out for the part of Olivia Pope on Scandal, but the part was giving to Kerry Washington.  I believe both roles worked out great for both talented ladies. I would love to watch both shows play right after each other.

There hasn’t been an official air date for Scandal season 1 on BET.
