Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) and her law school minions will have one more case on the docket. ABC announced earlier this week How to Get Away With Murder's upcoming sixth season will be its last one.
The series centers around Middleton University Professor Annalise Keating, her lover Detective Nate Lahey (Billy Brown), long-time associates Frank Delfino (Charlie Weber), Bonnie Winterbottom (Liza Weil), along with her law students and colleagues, who become entwined in a murder mystery. The series also stars Jack Falahee, Aja Naomi King, Matt McGorry, Conrad Ricamora, Rome Flynn and Amirah Vann.
Show creator Pete Nowark said in a released statement,
Deciding to end this series was a brutal decision, 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 begins Thursday, Sept. 26.
