St, John passed away in February from hypertrophic heart disease, according to the autopsy

Look for Shaw to appear on the upcoming April 25th episode of Y&R, according to TV Insider, who first posted the news.

The relationship between Shaw and St. John goes way back to the time they both appeared on the miniseries, Roots: The Next Generation in 1979.  In it, St. John played a young Alex Haley while Shaw played Will Palmer.

I don’t think there will be a dry eye in the house with this episode. St. John , from all the outpouring from cast and friends, was truly an amazing and special man. He will be missed by them.

His character will be sadly missed by all us fans who only knew him as Neil.

Godspeed

eeeessshhhh..
why do they have the need to bring on the morbid?
Kristoff is on his journey, hopefully, not just resting in peace going nowhere.

But- to bring the sobbing and all that depressing stuff on screen is not cool.
I won’t be watching that episode..

I’m glad that the show will remember Kristoff/ Neil; it’s what we do in life when loved ones pass. Some people make it low key by having graveside services. I want the show to truly memorialize Neil.

I love him as a actor, and I’m glad to hear that they’re going to have his creator pass on the show. May he continue to rest in peace.

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.

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.
