For those waiting for the return of Scandal Season 6, Grey's Anatomy Season 13 and How to Get Away with Murder Season 3, ABC has news to share. Unfortunately, the much-awaited comeback of the Shondaland will be once again pushed back to give way to Donald Trump's special inauguration.

The return of Shonda Rhimes' three programs on its original schedule will be delayed for a week as ABC will premiere a Trump special. Called 20/20, this will reveal the new POTUS' pre-inauguration titled America's First Family: The Trumps Go to Washington that will air on Jan. 19 at 10/9c. However, to compensate for the awaiting fans, the network will feature a repeat of Grey's Anatomy and Scandal episodes before the hour-long special, according to Buddy TV.

It was also noted that the reason ABC delayed Scandal Season 6, Grey's Anatomy Season 13 and How to Get Away with Murder Season 3 in unison is to make the Rhimes-produced shows return in the same day. Among the three, HTGAWM is only affected by the ABC special.

Also, to make it clear, the shows' delay is not because of Scandal Season 6's launch that features an ex-first lady of the United States running as a presidential candidate that, obviously, reflects the Trump-Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. The show led by Kerry Washington is set to reveal the fictional results of the election held on the show from its previous season.

Meanwhile, in a press release made by ABC, it stated that it intentionally moved the network's schedule for Jan. 19, Variety reported. This is to give way to the coming ABC News special First Family: The Trumps Go to Washington. 

This way, its TGIT lineup will remain intact revealing its three new episodes. Grey's Anatomy Season 13, Scandal Season 6 and How To Get Away With Murder Season 3 will all air on Jan. 26 starting at 8 p.m. and will end at 11 p.m.
