It’s back-to-school day for Shonda Rhimes and the casts of How to Get Away with Murder and Scandal.

The TV mogul, whose credits also include Grey’s Anatomy and its spin-off Private Practice, tweeted an image of a hoodie emblazoned with the word “Gladiator” (Harrison would be proud) for the show’s fifth season. “It’s here,” Rhimes wrote. “Table read day for #scandal! Excited to see the family!”

A few hours later, she offered this update: “Lots of squeals and hugs going on today. Feels/sounds like back to school around here. #TGIT #scandal #HTGAWM #GreysAnatomy.”

Rhimes wasn’t the only one excited to reunite with her TV family. Plenty of Scandal and HTGAWM actors — including Kerry Washington, Jack Falahee, Guillermo Diaz, and Bellamy Young — took to social media to celebrate the first table reads for the season:

Kerry Washington

Guillermo Diaz

JC Fernandez

Bellamy Young

Joshua Malina

Katie Lowes

Viola Davis

Jack Falahee

Pete Nowalk

JC Lee

Tony Goldwyn

And there you have it, folks, straight from the mouth of the president.
