How to Get Away With Murder is going to end with season six
How To Get Away With Murder is going to be coming to an end with season six.
The drama first premiered back in 2014, introducing Viola Davis' Annalise Keating - a teacher at a law school in Philadelphia - who becomes caught in a murder mystery with five of her students.
Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment, said:
“Viola Davis made television history with her unforgettable portrayal of iconic female antihero Annalise Keating.
“I am eternally grateful to her, Pete Nowalk and Shondaland for creating and bringing to life such a smart, sophisticated and groundbreaking series that has long been an integral part of Thursday nights on ABC.”
And Peter Nowalk, who created the series, added that it had been a "brutal decision" to end the series.
In a statement, he continued:
"But ultimately the story tells you what to do — as it did here. For me, Annalise Keating’s journey has always had a clear ending.
"Knowing I have 15 episodes left to finish her story, and the chance to give all the characters their own killer endings, is a gift rarely given to a series creator and I’m grateful to ABC and ABC Studios for the opportunity and creative freedom.
“I am so thankful to the brilliant cast, writers and crew for dedicating themselves to the most rewarding experience of my career over the last six years.
“I also want to thank our fans. The only reason this show exists is because of your loyalty and enthusiasm. I can’t wait for you all to see how it ends, with twists and turns and all the craziness we love to create every Thursday night. Buckle up.”
The final season follows Professor Annalise Keating’s (Viola Davis) class through their final semester in law school – while the deception, fear and guilt binding Professor Keating to her students prove deadlier than ever.
