The cast of ABC’s Scandal could not be more excited about the full season order the sophomore series received on Monday from the network.

“We’re thrilled. Beyond thrilled,” exclaimed Bellamy Young, who plays First Lady Mellie Grant on the ABC show. “It’s a love fest, so to make some more, I just can’t even …I can never see where they’re going now, so now I’m excited to see nine more.”

Young attended the premiere of co-star Kerry Washington’s new movie, The Details, with fellow Scandal star, Dan Bucatinksy, who plays James, the husband/ex-journalist of the show’s White House Chief of Staff Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry).

Though the show will be pre-empted for the Country Music Awards this week, Scandal will come roaring back with a brand new episode next week.

“You will see us take up where we did from the round table with the syndicate and you’ll get to know a little more about the back workings of how this presidency came to happen,” explained Young.

Both stars also teased more friction in the future for James and Cyrus.

“I find out some things about the last election that I probably shouldn’t know,” Bucatinsky said. “But as a journalist, I dig it up. I don’t want to give away too much.”

We already know that Cyrus isn’t the best person to mess with in this televised version of Washington D.C., so could he be hinting that his life may be in jeopardy?

“I’m saying as of right this moment, it’s not,” he reveals. “But I’m certainly poking the bear. Let me tell you, James pokes the bear. Why I can’t just stay at home with my husband and baby? I don’t know. I don’t have one, that’s why. If he’d just get me a baby, I wouldn’t be in this trouble.”

Given the political nature of the show, Young teased that there is a lot of resonance between the series and the current election.

Young, 42, told us, “I was just saying, we’re going to have to tweet a caveat saying that they wrote it and we filmed this months before we knew anything. Please don’t anyone put a target on our back. It’s uncanny, you’ll see.”
