This season of “Scandal” has been reduced to 18 episode due to Kerry Washington’s new bun in the oven.

According to reports, ABC shortened the current season by four episodes because “it’s getting hard to hide the pregnancy in loose-fitting clothes for the normally super stylish and elegant Olivia Pope.”

“The episode reduction would probably be an unexpected but welcome relief for Scandal‘s writers as it is extremely hard to sustain a dense serialized drama like Scandal for a 22-episode season,” Deadline reports. And seeing how Pope is the star of the series, cutting her workload and on-camera time would  be untrue to the story.

Sorry, gladiators!

Kerry is reportedly due in the spring.
