Gladiators, hold onto your seats (or your suits for that matter). On Friday, actor Columbus Short announced that he would not return next season for ABC’s Scandal.

At this time I must confirm my exit from a show I’ve called home for three years, with what is the most talented ensemble on television today. I would like to first thank Shonda Rhimes for the opportunity to work with such an amazing cast. Thank you Gladiators, who have supported me throughout my entire career and of course to ABC and Shondaland for allowing me to play such a pivotal role in the Scandal series.
