Always loved Gordon Thomson, such a charismatic actor. (Unrelated style note, I wonder why the soap press always puts ex- in front of characters from shows that are over. I mean, everyone is an ex-character on “Dynasty” or “Santa Barbara.” They’re gone! I always thought the ex- distinction was for actors who left a role on a show still on the air.)

Chelsea didn’t let moss grow under her feet. Who knows what she really got up to? The grifter.

This is fantastic news. I loved him on Dynasty, however, he was easily my least favourite Mason Capwell. But I am very happy that he is coming back to daytime!

I really liked him back in the day, but now that he’s aged, maybe not so much. The only woman in his age bracket would be Nicki. I am now thinking he may be related to Calvin in some way, looks like a good ‘ole boy!

Maybe her brother in law from marriage to new hubby?

All these new characters tied to ..Chelsea?!. Is she really that important to the canvas?.
Why is this turning into the Chelsea show. Adam is 1 thing because the actor portraying is amazing. But theres little rooting value for a rapist child napping theif conartist
..can we just get Arturo and Mia back atleast offcontract?. We lost two young hopefuls for senior relations to Chelsea?. Ugh

I don’t think so. Years ago it was established that Jeffrey Bardwell, played by the great Ted Shackelford of Dallas and Knotts Landing was her father. He married Gloria, Michael and Kevin’s mom.

Hi Violet – you are so right here! I trigger-finger replied to that story and approximately an hour or so later I remembered Jeffrey Bardwell was already id’d as her father years ago! And yes couldn’t agree more that Ted S. is one of the greats, in fact I wish they would bring him back on but unfortunately I don’t think that will happen. So you never know – it’s soap opera and storyline can be reversed! Gordon Thomson’s character may just turn out to be connected to Chelsea biologically, maybe even her father!? Remember Anita and Jeffrey are con-artists and Anita is about to re-appear!

You certainly have a good point. I never trusted Anita, and sure wouldn’t put it past her to have lied to Chelsea and Jeffery, as to her parentage.

How to Get Away With Murder To End After Its Upcoming Sixth Season

ABC has announced that Professor Annalise Keating (Viola Davis), and those cagey law students of hers, will receive some closure and exciting endings as How to Get Away with Murder will come to a conclusion after its season six. The upcoming 15-episode final season will premiere on Thursday, September 26 at 10 PM.

Series creator Peter Nowalk said in a statement released today: “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 will follow the perils of Professor Annalise Keating’s class through their final semester in law school with much deceit and murder going along with it!

Karey Burke, President, ABC Entertainment. said in a statement on the conclusion of the series: “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.”

How to Get Away with Murder burst on to primetime TV screens back in 2014, and helped formed the Shondaland programming block along with Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal.

The final season stars Davis along with the current cast comprised of: Billy Brown, Jack Falahee, Aja Naomi King, Matt McGorry,, Charlie Weber, Liza Weil Conrad Ricamora, former ‘Bold and the Beautiful’ star Rome Flynn, and Amirah Vann.
