The cast of How to Get Away with Murder will be doing so one more time.

Having been on the air since 2014, Professor Annelise Keating will begin her final lecture this year after it was announced that the series would be coming to an end after its upcoming 6th season.

“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,” series creator Pete Nowalk said in a statement.

“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,” he added.

Viola Davis has played Keating throughout the show’s run alongside Billy Brown, Jack Falahee, Aja Naomi King, Matt McGorry, Charlie Weber, Liza Weil, Conrad Ricamora, Rome Flynn, and Amirah Vann.

The series’ sixth and final season will commence September 26th.
