Shonda Rhimes will have one less show on ABC after next season. The Pete Nowalk-created How to Get Away with Murder will say goodbye after the upcoming sixth season, which will consist of 15 episodes. "Viola Davis made television history with her unforgettable portrayal of iconic female anti-hero Annalise Keating,” said ABC Entertainment president 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." The final season will take place through Annalise Keating's class' final semester of law school. "Deciding to end this series was a brutal decision, but ultimately the story tells you what to do — as it did here," said 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."
