How to get away with Murder is a criminal thriller TV series which aired way back in 2014. After 6 successful seasons, will there be a season 7 of How to get away with Murder? Here is everything we know.
Recap of Previous Seasons
The plot of How to get away with Murder might be one of the most complex ones ever in the history of Netflix. The story revolves around a law professor Annalise Keating who gets involved in a murder along with 5 of her students. It was premiered by ABC (Home Economics & Big Sky) and the number of seasons only pint to its popularity. Till date, 6 seasons have been released with 15 episodes in each season. But will there be a season 7 or has the popularity of the show dwindled? Let’s find out.
How to get away with Murder Season 7 – What to Expect
This American legal thriller has given us six binge worthy seasons so far. It would be crazy not to make another one, given that the writers did not disappoint once in the previous seasons. Season 6 of the Netflix show was premiered in 2019 and fans are eagerly waiting for the announcement of season 7. Unfortunately for fans, Peter Nowalk, the creator confirmed through an Instagram post his will to end the season. However, it is better not to lose hope because Netflix (Monarca) announced the seventh season of How to get away with Murder in 2020. The fact that no season has come up yet can be blamed entirely on the pandemic for slowing down processes.
Cast of How to get away with Murder
If a season 7 gets aired on Netflix (Bonding), most of the original cast members are expected to resume their roles. Suicide Squad star Viola Davis will take up her role as Annalize. The new season could also feature Conrad Ricamora (Oliver) and Karla Souza (Laurel) in their previous roles. Of course with new seasons there will always be new characters. But that cannot be confirmed until the official announcement is made.
Will the Show Revive?
Most often, makers and OTT platforms rely on the audience reactions and ratings to revive a show. If that is the case with How to get away with Murder, there is a definite chance of revival! Why? Because the show wouldn’t have gone on for six seasons if the viewers hadn’t binged watched it constantly. With an 85% critic rating on the popular platform Rotten Tomatoes, this melodramatic thriller might be back to haunt your nights.
Expected Plot for Season 7
As mentioned before, there is no official confirmation for the revival of a new season for this OTT show. However, that does not mean there is any shortage of plotlines. A gripping thriller like How to get away with Murder left a couple of cliff hangers in season 6. For example, the viewers don’t know much about Sandrine’s fate. Season 6 ended with a mystery whether Sandrine really died or not. And if she did, like many fans assumed, who is the killer? Also, the new season could focus on the unexplored future of Annalize. That would no doubt be a treat for the audience!
Most Popular Character Ship
Annalize is undoubtedly the most popular character on the show and a favourite for the fans. In fact the journey of Annalize carefully constructed and a brainchild of the creator Peter Nowalk. The writer team was able to give each character its own killer ending to fulfil audience curiosity. Now that explains why the entire show is so well mapped! This is one of the reasons why the TV series (NOS4A2, Tuca & Bertie) was claimed to have 6 seasons only. For all those who are feeling that wave of disappointment after hearing this, do keep in mind all good things come to an end. And there is always the option of binge watching the show once again isn’t there?
