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.”

Sorry to hear that; great show! Time between seasons are so long these past years on so many shows that it’s almost difficult to remember where a show last left off the season before unless you binge the entire last season! But once I re-familiarize myself with the characters/stories I fall in love with the show (s) all over again! This was one helluva ride; kudos to all involved!

Rebecca1…I so agree about the long time lag between seasons. And also all of the different “networks” in the game like HBO, etc., which I wont pay for no matter how good their programming is. I’ve lost where I am on Outlander which I haven’t liked as much since they came over to the colonies. May not be able to get Lucifer on my tv package because I think this show has moved to another network. Never did find out where and if Twin Peaks reboot made an appearance somewhere. o far I’m okay with Handmaiden.

Hey, Rose. The seasons between Outlander, as well as Poldark, are insane! Same for The Affair and…the final season of Game of Thrones seemed like a decade! Can u imagine if daytime soaps were seasonal? Haha…maybe that’s what they should have done to cut budget…might still have OLTL!
I haven’t enjoyed Outlander as much I enjoyed the first few seasons; it went downhill for me once she went back to her own time…from there on it was never the same. Still, I look forward to it and will see it to the end.
Lucifer was canceled but picked up by Netflix. I dont get that so I’ll just order it and binge the season, then cancel, or take the DVDs out when it comes to the library. You never told me if you checked out Younger on TV Land. ( I think that’s the channel; you can look it up. I recommended it to u several times. So good!)

Rebecca…Haven’t found Younger yet. Promise to look for it. My favorite right now is the BBC production of Discovery Of Witches to the point I read the book. Wonderful. I think you would really like it. I saw the first season, just hope the second and third seasons will still be showing on the same channel.

Hey, Rose. Thanks! I’ll look for it! Younger is, as said, on TV Land. If you can’t find it, they might have it in the library. Just to note…Younger is contemporary…as I explained so long ago, 😉 it’s the story of a 40 year-old passing as a 20-something to get back into the publishing field and all that ensues. It’s trendy, Manhattan based, characters of different ages, has friendship, romance, humor…and a dash of good-looking guys! Has a great cast: Sutton Foster is a Tony winner, Hilary Duff, Debra Mazar, Peter Hermann and other wonderful actors…love it!!!! LOL; okay; I made my case. I really hope you check it out. And…let me know watcha think.

It was running out of steam..
It was Great but not so for the past 2 seasons..
No matter-
she will come up with another awesome show, that’s what she does..
I’m looking forward to her next one 🙂

She is an excellent actress; not sure if she’d want to do another show rather than go back to films. We shall see…But I agree, those first couple of seasons were great. And I HATED that they killed off Miller, the district attorney who loved Bonnie. I can’t STAND when they kill the wrong guy! 😉

The premise of the show didn’t really allow for it to run for too many seasons. You can’t base a show around a bunch of law students and have it run longer than their actual time in law school would last… unless you wanted to change the entire cast every few years.

And you can only get away with so many murders before your luck runs out. Six is probably more than most mortals could pull off.

Impeachment Hearings On Broadcast Networks Show Ratings Much Lower Than The Daytime Soap Operas They Are Preempting

In an infuriating article written by FOX news, off of a study from NewsBusters, the news outlet and others have come to the realization that all of us who want our soaps back on the air already know.  That is … that the network daytime dramas ratings are far better on a day-to-day basis than people tuning into network TV during the day to watch the impeachment hearings of Donald Trump.

Soap fans have been furious that in the afternoon network TV is pulling their soaps off their normal airtime across all coasts.  Daytime soap viewers feel that all of the 24-hour news cable outlets should be the the place to go to see the hearings during the day; as to not to preempt the drama on General Hospital, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless, and The Bold and the Beautiful.

Just for the record, the study via NewsBusters showed that on day one of the impeachment hearing the networks scored as such: CBS averaged 1.52 million, ABC  1.29 million viewers, and NBC averaged 1.26 million viewers.   Thursday’s were even worse with CBS averaging 1.4 million, ABC 1.2 million viewers and NBC had 1.1 million viewers.

Now compare that to the weekly daytime soap ratings and total viewers which while it ebbs and slows is still way about this.  According to the study: “The Young & The Restless” has been averaging 3.7 million viewers during the 2019-2020 season and The Bold & The Beautiful averages 3.15 million viewers. ABC’s General Hospital averages 2.15 million viewers while NBC’s Days of Our Lives averages 1.95 million viewers.”

Share your thoughts on the pre=emptions of your favorite soaps, and how the impeachment hearings are, of course, not bringing in higher number in the day-part via the comment section below.
