It's time to say goodbye to How to Get Away with Murder

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the rumors are true and that the mystery drama will be wrapping up with its sixth season. 

Before the show's May renewal, rumors were swirling that ABC was about to renew it for one last season.

However, ABC delayed the final season announcement, and instead renewed the show for an additional season. 

While the show was a crown jewel in ABC's schedule in earlier seasons thanks to the star power of Viola Davis and the robust ratings, the numbers have sagged in later years.

The show was even on the bubble to be renewed for one last season as a result of the lower than expected ratings for How to Get Away with Murder Season 5

It ultimately averaged 2.8 million total viewers and a 0.7 rating in the demo, sliding almost 30% year-to-year.

It remained a decent performer with a week of DVR factored in, but it was losing a considerable portion of its lead-in in live ratings. 

While it would have been fair to assume that the power of it coming from Shondaland could keep it on the air for years to come, Shondaland has exited ABC Studios for Netflix.

When HTGAWM concludes, Grey's Anatomy and Station 19 will be the sole Shondaland shows on ABC. 

Grey's Anatomy and Station 19 boast much stronger ratings than HTGAWM. Greys is also renewed through 2021, so it's possible that it will be the final Shondaland show to air on ABC.
