“How to Get Away With Murder” has cast its next victim.

Cicely Tyson will guest star alongside Viola Davis on Shonda Rhimes’ hit freshman series when the ABC drama returns Jan. 29 with the remaining six episodes of its first season.

ABC has not revealed any details on Tyson’s character, but for now, she is set to appear in one episode, which will air in the middle of the midseason run.

  1. I hope that Cicely Tyson/Viola Davis will indeed mother/daughter. It would be interested to learn how Prof. Keating was grow up and learn how she meet her future husband in the first place. I hope that there will be a second season.

  2. Just think, Cicely is almost old enough to *really be* Miss Jane Pittman.

  3. I got a feeling that Cicely Tyson will play the mother of Viola Davis ‘s character in the series.
