‘How To Get Away With Murder’ To End After Upcoming 6th Season
How To Get Away With Murder had a good run on ABC’s Shondaland lineup. But now the end is drawing near. According to new reports, the series will wrap after its sixth season.
The show stars Viola Davis, Aja Naomi King, Liza Weil, Rome Flynn, Billy Brown, Timothy Hutton, Conrad Ricamora, Souza, Jack Falahee and Charlie Weber. Alfred Enoch also starred in the series before his character was shockingly killed off.
Davis won several awards while on the show including Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series, Screen Actors Guild for Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor, NAACP Image Award for Oustanding Actress in a Drama Series, People’s Choice Award for Favorite Actress in a New TV Series.
The series also won an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Drama Series, GLAAD Media Award For Outstanding Drama Series and AFI TV Programs of the Year.
While its creator, Shonda Rhimes still has shows on ABC like “Grey’s Anatomy,” and its spinoff “Station 19,” the news of How To Get Away With Murder’s ending was announced just a day after it was revealed Shondaland will have a new series on Netflix. That show is slated to premiere in 2020. It’s just one of eight new projects that Rhimes will bring to Netflix as part of her new deal with the streaming company.
This is the first time in more than 10 years that Rhimes’ is not debuting a show on ABC.
Meanwhile, viewers were left on the edge of their seats with the fifth season finale of How to Get Away With Murder.
It might be safe to say the show will end on a high note as it averaged 2.5 million viewers in its fifth season, with a 0.67 in the 18-49 demographic. It’s been going strong since it debuted on September 2014.
The sixth season premieres on September 26.
