A drama series that has been a staple of the prime-time lineup for ABC will roll out its sixth and final season this fall. ABC made the announcement today that it will wrap “How to Get Away With Murder.”
The final season will premiere Thursday, Sept. 26.
“This season follows 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,” ABC said in its announcement.
Davis won a Primetime Emmy in 2015 for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her work on the series, becoming the first woman of color to win an Emmy Award in the category. She has also been honored with two SAG Awards, a People’s Choice Award and an NAACP Image Award for her portrayal of Annalise Keating.
“Viola Davis made television history with her unforgettable portrayal of iconic female antihero Annalise Keating,” said Karey Burke, president of ABC Entertainment. “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.”
