Good news, Shondaland fans! Shonda Rhimes, creator of Grey's Anatomy, has yet another success story on her hands.  

Shonda's newest show, the juicy political thriller Scandal, has just been picked up for a full second season by ABC, reports Deadline.

The show stars the talented Kerry Washington as unstoppable fixer Olivia Pope, and features the kind of twisty, juicy drama that Shonda Rhimes is a master at writing. It premiered with an abbreviated first season in Spring 2012. We're hoping this pickup is a sign that there will be many more seasons to come.

Congrats, Shonda!

Catch the next new episode of Grey’s Anatomy on Thursday, November 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
