Last season, How to Get Away with Murder was ABC’s most-watched scripted series which is particularly impressive for a new series. The show had a fantastic debut but ratings dropped quite a bit over the course of the season. Will they keep falling in season two or will they grow? Cancelled or almost guaranteed to be renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
