[ # ] How to Get Away With Murder is no longer getting away with murder
July 11th, 2019 under Uncategorized


ABC announced today that they are murdering How to Get Away with Murder at the end of this season. Translation, their upcoming sixth season will be its last.

The promo promises that it will be a killer season. What can we expect from it? It “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.”

Why now? Series creator Pete Nowalk says, “Deciding to end this series was a brutal decision, but ultimately the story tells you what to do – as it did here. 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.” Then he added, “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.”

Personally, I am surprised it lasted this long. It has never been a break out hit nor has it gotten a lot of buzz. Therefore, I think their decision is the right one.

The end of HTGAWM leaves Shonda Rhimes with just two shows on the network, Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 which was pushed back until the midseason. Stupid, depressing A Million Little Things is airing in its place.

This is not the only broadcast show having its final run this television year, it joins Empire, The Good Place, Blindspot, Modern Family, Arrow, Supernatural, Madame Secretary and Criminal Minds. That is a lot of shows and I am sure there will be more, a lot more.
