It’s a wrap on another Shonda Rhimes‘ drama. How To Get Away With Murder, the Viola Davis-led series will end after its upcoming sixth season. In a statement, ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke says, “Viola Davis made television history with her unforgettable portrayal of iconic female antihero Annalise Keating. 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.”
Davis’ role in the hit show catapulted her back (cause she’s always had the juice) to stardom, resulting in the 53-year-old racking up a slew of awards, including the 2015 Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama series, which made her the first woman of color to win.
And who can forget those EPIC monologues? A fan favorite — when Olivia Pope and Annalise met up at the beauty shop!
The show also stars Billy Brown as Detective Nate Lahey, Jack Falahee as Connor Walsh, Aja Naomi King as Michaela Pratt, Matt McGorry as Asher Millstone, Charlie Weber as Frank Delfino, Liza Weil as Bonnie Winterbottom, Conrad Ricamora as Oliver Hampton, Rome Flynn as Gabriel Maddox and Amirah Vann as Tegan Price.
2019 has already seen the cancelation of so many of our favorite shows, including Power, Steve and Empire, proving no one is safe. How To Get Away With Murder returns September 26.
