The American drama series, How to Get Away with Murder, with Viola Davis in the lead role and seen on 1Magic (DStv 103) will end with the upcoming 6th season in September that will be its last but promising "killer endings".

On Thursday America's ABC network in a press release announced that the upcoming 6th season of How to Get Away with Murder will be its last.

The final season will follow Professor Annalise Keating's class through their final semester in law school, "while the deception, fear and guilt binding Professor Keating to her students prove deadlier than ever".

During the series' run, Viola Davis won the 2015 Primetime Emmy award for outstanding lead  actress in a drama series which cemented her name in history as the first woman of colour to win an Emmy award in the category.

In addition to the Emmy, Viola Davis has been honoured with two SAG Awards, a People's Choice Award and an NAACP Image Award for her portrayal of Annalise Keating.

"Viola Davis made television history with her unforgettable portrayal of iconic female antihero Annalise Keating," says Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment. "I am eternally grateful to her, Pete Nowalk and Shondaland for creating and bringing to life such a smart, sophisticated and groundbreaking series".

Series creator Pete Nowalk says "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."

"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."

How to Get Away with Murder was created and executive produced by Peter Nowalk, with Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers and Stephen Cragg also serving as executive producers. The show is produced by ABC Studios, a division of Disney Television Studios.
