You probably already have several group texts set up to gossip about Shonda Rhimes' shows. At the very least, you live-tweet How to Get Away With Murder. Now, finally, there's a place online for everyone with a group chat to get together, thanks to Rhimes' brand-new website, which just launched today.
Shondaland.com promises to be a place for articles and videos about politics, culture, style, health, and relationships. There will be interviews, advice columns, essays, and more, brought to you by Rhimes and a team of writers led by Jennifer Romolini, the site's chief content officer. "I'm really excited to see what stories we're going to be able to tell. It's going to be about quality over quantity," she told Cosmopolitan.com in June. "We want to showcase voices and women and issues that we think are important, and that's basically our content plan." (Shondaland is a joint production of the Shondaland production company and Hearst Magazines Digital Media, the publisher of Cosmopolitan.com.)
Previously, Shondaland existed as an email newsletter, and now it'll be available online as well. "Shondaland has always been this very real, very imaginary place that I think of as a haven for everyone," she wrote in her summer 2017 newsletter. "I like to think about it a great deal. I like to think about how to make it better, smarter, faster, more vocal. More welcoming. More… MORE."
Rhimes has also promised to detail the winding down of Scandal in the pages of Shondaland.com, and hopes the space will be a community for fans of her shows. Also, probably a place to mourn the end of Olivia Pope's story while drowning your sorrows in popcorn and red wine.
