Which brings us to Season 4, which is set to debut September 25 on ABC. The preview for the upcoming season has arrived, and the big question is: Where is Olivia Pope? Judging by the teaser, she’s somewhere on a beach, feet up, with a glass of red wine, her go-to. Honestly, girl needs a break so we don’t blame her one bit, but we’re obviously eager to see where the storyline is headed this season. Something tells us everyone’s favorite crisis manager won’t be lounging around the beach for long.

Watch the preview below, and let us know is you are looking forward to the premiere!
