In September, Stephen Collins tweeted that he would be returning to Scandal  but that won’t be happening anymore.

A day after reports surfaced that the actor is under investigation for child molestation, ABC tells EW, “We can confirm that we will not be airing any footage with Stephen Collins.”

On Tuesday, TMZ posted audio of a therapy session where Collins says he exposed himself to young girls. Shortly after, he was fired from his minor role in Ted 2.

The former 7th Heaven star appeared as Reed Wallace, a reporter who’s on air during Fitz’s attempted assassination, in a 2012 episode of Scandal.
