‘How to Get Away With Murder, ‘Station 19,’ ‘For the People’ Renewed at ABC

ABC has renewed “How to Get Away With Murder” for a fifth season.

In Season 5 of the Shondaland series, Annalise, Michaela, Connor, Asher, and Laurel all struggle to move on with their lives after Wes’ death. But when a new mystery involving one of their own unfolds throughout the season, relationships are fractured, secrets are exposed and yet another truth is revealed.

The series stars Emmy winner Viola Davis in the lead role, along with Billy Brown, Jack Falahee, Aja Naomi King, Matt McGorry, Karla Souza, Charlie Weber, Liza Weil, and Conrad Ricamora. Pete Nowalk created the series in addition to serving as executive producer. Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers, and Bill D’Elia also serve as executive producers. The series is produced by ABC Studios.

Nowalk broke the news on Twitter, writing, “Season 5, we are coming for you! Thanks to all our fans #HTGAWM.”

The renewal comes after Rhimes exited her longtime home at ABC Studios to take up a multi-year production deal with Netflix. Rhimes is still an executive producer on this series as well as “Grey’s Anatomy” and the spinoff “Station 19,” as well as the legal drama “For the People.” Fellow Shondaland show “Scandal” aired its series finale in April.

“For the People” and “Station 19” have also been renewed for second seasons.

“For The People” is set in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. It follows young lawyers who work on both sides of the law to try the most high-profile and high-stakes federal cases in the country. It stars Britt Robertson, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Wesam Keesh, Hope Davis, Ben Rappaport, Rege-Jean Page, Susannah Flood, Ben Shenkman, Vondie Curtis-Hall and Anna Deavere Smith.

The series is produced by ABC Studios and was created by Shondaland’s Paul William Davies, who executive produces alongside Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers and Tom Verica.

“Station 19,” a spinoff of “Grey’s Anatomy,” follows the men and women who risk their lives as they work at the titular Seattle fire station.  It stars Jaina Lee Ortiz as Andy Herrera, Jason George as Ben Warren, Grey Damon as Jack Gibson, Barrett Doss as Victoria Hughes, Alberto Frezza as Ryan Tanner, Jay Hayden as Travis Montgomery, Okieriete Onaodowan as Dean Miller, Danielle Savre as Maya Bishop, and Miguel Sandoval as Captain Pruitt Herrera.

Stacy McKee serves as showrunner and executive producer, along with Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers. Paris Barclay serves as the producing director and executive producer of the series. ABC Studios produces.
