After some speculation, How to Get Away with Murder was officially renewed for a fifth season on Friday.
The show's creator Pete Nowalk tweeted his excitement, writing: "Season 5, we are coming for you! Thanks to all our fans." Nowalk also included several knife emojis in the tweet because this is a show that involves a lot of murder, after all.
The Season 5 renewal is a particularly exciting one for fans who were left on several cliffhangers in the Season 4 finale, including whether Laurel (Karla Souza) killed her mother and the introduction of a mysterious new character Gabriel Maddox (Rome Flynn)
Nowalk previously told TV Guide some of his plans for the fifth season, including a slew of new mysteries and a different type of flash forward. "I don't want to give away too much because I also could change my mind. But I think they're going to be more fun and a different tone, and it's something we've set up," Nowalk told us earlier this spring.
In addition to How to Get Away with Murder, on Friday ABC also ordered second seasons of two other Shonda Rhimes dramas, For the People and the Greys' Anatomy spin-off Station 19, as well as renewed comedies American Housewife, black-ish, Fresh Off the Boat, Speechless and Splitting Up Together.
