ABC's 'How to Get Away With Murder' to End After Six Seasons

ABC has today announced that the upcoming sixth season of the original drama series How to Get Away With Murder starring Viola Davis will be its last. The 15-episode final season premieres on Thursday, September 26 at 10/9c.

The drama stars Viola Davis, Billy Brown, Jack Falahee, Rome Flynn, Aja Naomi King, Matt McGorry, Conrad Ricamora, Karla Souza, Amirah Vann, Charlie Weber, Liza Weil and Timothy Hutton.

Peter Nowalk created the drama. He executive produces with Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers and Stephen Cragg. ABC Studios, Shondaland and NoWalk Entertainment produce.

"Viola Davis made television history with her unforgettable portrayal of iconic female anti-hero Annalise Keating," said Karey Burke. "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."

"Deciding to end this series was a brutal decision, but ultimately the story tells you what to do - as it did here," added Nowalk. "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."
