SCANDAL - "Paris is Burning" - Olivia and Fitz face some very big consequences and Mellie brings in an old friend to make sure she gets her way. Meanwhile, Abby shows Olivia she is fully capable of handling working at the White House, on "Scandal," THURSDAY OCTOBER 8 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/John Fleenor)TONY GOLDWYN, KERRY WASHINGTONOlivia Pope is about to fix her final "Scandal."

Sources tell TV Line that the drama's seventh season will be its last and ABC is expected to make the announcement at their upfront advertising presentation next week. Neither the network nor Shondaland productions commented on the report.

In season 6, which has two more weeks before the finale, the show has been averaging 5.7 million viewers and a 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Those figures are down from its peak, when it averaged 12 million viewers.

Creator Shonda Rhimes has previously said she never envisioned the show having as long of a shelf life as "Grey's Anatomy."

"I feel like there is a finite amount of 'Scandal' to be told," Rhimes told NPR. "So I know what the end of 'Scandal' will be, and I feel really good about that. And I can see where the end point is. And I don't think I'm going to change that."
