Portia de Rossi recently dished about the return of ABC's Scandal, calling the new season both 'exciting' and 'amazing.' She teased about the show's return from midseason break while she and wife Ellen DeGeneres walked the red carpet at the People's Choice Awards last Wednesday.

"What I'm reading now, and what we're doing that will air at the end of the month, it's kind of amazing," de Rossi shared.

"[It's] very exciting," she added while speaking to ET.

The former Ally McBeal star still wouldn't spill the beans, however. There were absolutely no spoilers leaked from her lips to ET's mic. Portia de Rossi plays the role of Elizabeth North, whose conniving schemes are beginning to come unraveled. It's the kind of role that de Rossi has said she’s wanted since Scandal first began.

Even Ellen DeGeneres wouldn't spill any of the Scandal beans.

"She comes home and starts talking about her day, like anybody who wants to share their day… but I don't want to know her day! Because I'm a fan, and I want to see it like everybody else," DeGeneres said.

"So I know things that are happening that are cray-cray," Ellen added.

It seems fans will simply have to wait to see Portia de Rossi in her role as Elizabeth North when Scandal returns will new episodes beginning on January 29th. Check her--and the rest of the Scandal cast, including Kerry Washington, Guillermo Díaz, and more--at 8:00 PM.
