Scandal may be over, but worry not because its brilliant creator, Shonda Rhimes, has just revealed that she鈥檚 working on eight (yes, eight!) new series for Netflix, the first in her multi-year, nine-figure development deal with the streaming giant.

The shows, which will be produced by Rhimes鈥 company, Shondaland, will include a period drama, a dark comedy, and a documentary, and, as she told the New York Times, they鈥檒l definitely surprise fans. 鈥淓verybody thinks that there鈥檚 a 鈥楽hondaland show,'鈥 she teased. 鈥淣o. There鈥檚 a Shondaland show that we made for ABC. Now I can鈥檛 wait to show everybody what a Shondaland show is that we make for the world.鈥

Revealing what she currently has in the pipeline, the powerhouse producer admitted that, at first, she was seriously stressed out by brainstorming. 鈥淚t wasn鈥檛 like I had a treasure trove of ideas in the back of my head that I鈥檇 been hiding and saving, so the panic overtook me for a while,鈥 she confessed to the NYT. Then she read a magazine article about a female con artist, and everything clicked. She snapped up the rights to the story from the journalist who wrote it and was so inspired, she dreamt up seven more shows. Wowza.

In addition to the still untitled project above, Rhimes will roll out four shows based on books, including The Residence (a nonfiction account of the lives of White House service staff), The Warmth of Other Suns (a historical look at the migration of African-Americans fleeing the South for the North and West), an untitled project based on Julia Quinn鈥檚 historical Bridgerton romance series, and Reset:聽My Fight for Inclusion and Lasting Change (based on Ellen Pao鈥檚 memoir recounting discrimination and sexism in Silicon Valley and her groundbreaking lawsuit against her former employer).

Rounding out the collection will be Pico & Sepulveda (set in 1840s California when the state belonged to Mexico), Sunshine Scouts (a half-hour dark comedy series about a group of teenage girls who survive an apocalypse), and Hot Chocolate Nutcracker (a documentary about the Debbie Allen Dance Academy鈥檚 retelling of The Nutcracker). We are so ready.
