‘How to Get Away With Murder’: Viola Davis Says Season 2 Is a Go

It looks like the Keating Five really can get away with murder — at least for one more season.

ABC’s freshman hit “How to Get Away With Murder” will be returning for a second season, according to star Viola Davis, who tweeted and posted the news on her Facebook. Though ABC has not officially handed over a renewal, a second season of the ABC Studios drama is a no-brainer.

The latest series from Shonda Rhimes’ Shondaland, “How to Get Away With Murder” is the season’s No. 2-rated new show in adults 18-49, behind only Fox’s “Empire.” It has been the top series in its Thursday 10 p.m. timeslot with every original episode to date.

HTGAWM” has quickly garnered a huge fanbase, as part of the tweet-friendly Thursday night lineup. (When it returned with its Jan. 29 midseason premiere, 9 of 10 trending U.S. Twitter topics we’re related to “TGIT” shows.)

The show picked up its first SAG award this month for Viola Davis‘ portrayal as Professor Annalise Keating.

“It is my hope that the writers and the creative team behind the show keep delving into these characters and make them both complicated and humanized that people would want to tune in, regardless of awards,” Davis recently told Variety on the show’s Los Angeles set.

Davis made history, along with “Orange Is the New Black’s” Uzo Aduba at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, marking the first time two African American women won for best television actress in both the drama (“HTGAWM”) and comedy (“OITNB”) categories.

“I think Shonda Rhimes has created narratives that include us and that’s good,” Davis said about the series bringing diversity to TV. “I think that’s something that everyone should do.”
