Scandal Season 7 Charlie

Scandal Promotes George Newbern to Series Regular for Final Season

Better late than never!

After putting in six seasons as a Scandal recurring player, George Newbern is being promoted to a full-fledged series regular for the ABC’s drama’s upcoming seventh and final season, TVLine has learned.

Newbern joined Scandal in Season 1 as B-613 spy Charlie and has continued to recur through the current sixth
season, appearing in nearly 30 total episodes. Since his introduction, Charlie has (mostly) shed his shady ways, taking a job at OPA and planning a future with Quinn, his blushing bride-to-be — that is, assuming her lingering feelings for Huck don’t put a damper on the big day.

His status change comes as ABC is poised to officially announce that the Shonda Rhimes-created political thriller will be heading into its final season.

Scandal‘s two-hour Season 6 finale airs this Thursday at 9/8c.

    Yes! I love Charlie.

    Good. Considering how much he’s been on, I’m surprised they didn’t do this already, but at least he will be part of the endgame.

  3. Jules says:

    I’ve always liked George Newbern and he is really good as Charlie. Good for him!

  4. Gospino says:

    Good! Charlie is one of my favorite characters.

  5. Larc says:

    Good move. Should have happened sooner.

  6. Penny says:

    Shows how much I know, I truly already thought he was a regular! Good for him!

  7. Doris Bell says:

    I love Charlie, so that’s great.

  8. Cas says:

    He wasn’t already one? Shame on you ABC. Charlie is my favorite. It’s going to make me real sad when Quinn still ends up with Huck.

  9. F.V. James says:

    No shirt please!

  10. Belle says:

    Finally, George is awesome…I’m just disappointed they waited this long to make him a regular!!! They better not put Quinn with Huck, she belongs with Charlie PERIOD!

    It’s weird that he wasn’t a regular even though his character appeared in more episodes this season than Cyrus, Marcus and Lizzie.
