During the finale, which starts at 11:35 p.m. -- 35 minutes after the episode -- Jimmy Kimmel will sit down for an exclusive on-set interview with Scandal showrunner Shonda Rhimes, fielding burning questions about the season and more.

The episode will also feature special appearances and inside secrets from the Scandal cast as well as a never-before-seen Scandal blooper reel and the full anthology of Kimmel's Spanish-language telenovela Escandalo, which ended its run this week.

The pairing of Kimmel with Scandal has proven successful for ABC. The network's lone late-night talk show nabbed its best ratings of the season in February when Scandal star Kerry Washington was the highlighted guest. Kimmel has featured the majority of the cast this season, including Tony Goldwyn, Bellamy Young, Guillermo Diaz, Darby Stanchfield, Katie Lowes, Jeff Perry, Josh Malina, Scott Foley and Columbus Short, many of whom participated in the Escandalo viral video series.

Scandal airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on ABC and Kimmel at 11:35 p.m. weeknights. Stay tuned to THR's The Live Feed for more Scandal coverage and check out the Escandalo finale, below.
