How To Get Away With Murder


Annalise Keating will teach her students how to get away with just one more murder—ABC's How to Get Away With Murder is ending with the coming sixth season. Viola Davis won an Emmy for playing Annalise Keating, becoming the first woman of color to win the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series award.

"Viola Davis made television history with her unforgettable portrayal of iconic female antihero Annalise Keating," Karey Burke, president of ABC Entertainment, said in a statement "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."

The series also stars Billy Brown, Jack Falahee, Aja Naomi King, Matt McGorry, Charlie Weber, Liza Weil, Conrad Ricamora, Rome Flynn and Amirah Vann.

"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," series creator Pete Nowalk said in a statement. "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."
