ABC announced that the upcoming sixth season of “How to Get Away with Murder” will be its last. The series, which has been a constant in ABC’s TGIT programming block since its debut on Sept. 25, 2014, will follow Professor Annalise Keating’s (Viola Davis) class through their final semester in law school – while the deception, fear and guilt binding Professor Keating to her students prove deadlier than ever.
During the series run, Viola Davis earned the 2015 Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, which made history as the first woman of color to win an Emmy Award in the category. In addition to the Emmy, Davis has been honored with two SAG Awards, a People’s Choice Award and an NAACP Image Award for her portrayal of Annalise Keating.
The now final sixth season will begin on September 26. Shondaland’s “How to Get Away with Murder” is created and executive produced by Peter Nowalk (“Scandal,” “Grey’s Anatomy”). Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers and Stephen Cragg also serve as executive producers. The show is produced by ABC Studios, a division of Disney Television Studios.
