ABC has had some great success with Shonda Rhimes TV shows on Thursdays. Will How to Get Away with Murder be a hit in the ratings too? Will it be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A legal-mystery TV series, How to Get Away with Murder revolves around a college professor and defense attorney (Viola Davis) who, along with her students, gets involved with a murder case. The rest of the cast includes Tom Verica, Billy Brown, Alfred Enoch, Aja Naomi King, Jack Falahee, Karla Souza, Matt McGorry, Charlie Weber, Liza Weil, and Katie Findlay.

What do you think? Do you like the How to Get Away with Murder TV show? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
PLEASE RENEW! Love this show!!!
I think they should bring back How to get away Murder. It was very intense and made you sit on the edge of your seat. It kept you wondering what was going to happen next.
I liked the show, but it spent to much gay backstory and then added in the sex. But looking back on the season the scenes where the main cast focuses on the murder made me excited to watch Viola ! Great cast. My hope is they drop the gay bf storyline and add C. Tyson. !! And let’s learn more about the other characters , and maybe some more murders . #htgawm #nomorenerdybf
I love it tune down on the sex.
Wow, That finale was crazy! Hope it’s renewed.
I love this show! Please renew! I like the plot turns. Cicely Tyson was phenomenal.
I agree this show is delving into areas never explored on TV. If Cicely Tyson doesn’t get an Emmy for that scene you guys aren’t giving the award to the right people. I hope they will write her in for more episodes.
This show is a masterpiece.
The plot is great but their is too much gratuitous sex. The scenes are often way over the top. I stopped watching Grey’s because of this as well. If they tone it down and concentrate on the plot which is murder mystery then it would be better. One note that I have to make…CICLY TYSON BETTER GET AN EMMY FOR HER PERFORMANCE. SHE WAS AMAZING!
all Shonda Shows are garbage !
SUPER AMAZING!!!!!! PLSSSS….RENEWED love this series soooo much its A must to renewed!!!!
Told everyone who the killer is and now fewer and fewer people are tuning in. guess not as many people care if thecast knows how to get away with murder
Such a good show! Please renew!
I agree. To top it off, none of the characters are especially likable. Except maybe the boyfriend of the one guy and the police officer they arrested.
