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.

Along with the big announcement, ABC released this trailer of the final episodes of the series and its season 6 called “The Beginning of the End”.  Check it out below.

Now, let us know … upset to hear that HTGWM is signing off?  How do you hope it will end for Annalise and her students?  Comment below.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.
