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.

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”
