(CBS) -- [SPOILER ALERT!] It looks like Jake Ballard shall live to charm Olivia Pope once again.

Scott Foley has been promoted from recurring guest star on season 2 of ABC’s “Scandal” to series regular for the third season of the popular drama by Shonda Rhimes.

“I’m thrilled to join such a talented, enthusiastic and professional group of people,” Foley said in a statement. “Shonda and company have created a troupe of layered complex characters and to be able to be part of that is both exciting and humbling.”

The explosive season 2 finale saw black op gun-for-hire and spy for the president thrown into a hole into the ground after saving Olivia (Kerry Washington) from an assassin.

As if we weren’t excited enough for the third season! “Scandal” will return on Thursdays this fall.

Foley is also a graduate of McCluer High School in Ferguson.
