Last night marked the end of the first season of How to Get Away with Murder on ABC. The finale had a killer twist — and there’s more to come in season two.
The network has not issued a renewal press release but a promo at the end of the episode (see below) stated that How to Get Away with Murder will indeed return for a second season in the fall.
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.
Though the ratings have come down quite a bit over the course of the season, it remains one of ABC’s top-rated shows and is currently averaging a 3.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 9.88 million viewers.
SAG Award winner Davis teased the second season renewal a few weeks ago on Facebook, writing, “Just wrapped filming season one and onto SEASON 2 BABY!!!!!”.
