‘How To Get Away With Murder’ To End After Season 6
How To Get Away With Murder will be saying goodbye after their sixth season, ABC has announced.
“Viola Davis made television history with her unforgettable portrayal of iconic female antihero Annalise Keating,” said ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke in a statement. “I am eternally grateful for 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, the series creator and show-runner. “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 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 cant 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.”
Fans were heartbroken when they heard the news that their favorite show was ending.

The drama also remains a source of pride for Rhimes, who left ABC Studios in 2018 for a rich deal at Netflix. Once HTGAWM sunsets, there will only be two Shondaland shows left at ABC – Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19
