How to Get Away With Murder also stars Billy Brown, Jack Falahee, Matt McGorry, Aja Naomi King, Karla Souza, Charlie Weber, Liza Weil and Conrad Ricamora. It launched to huge ratings and lot of buzz in 2014.
The show’s fourth season recently came to an end and set up a mystery around Bonnie’s (Liza Weil) character who was revealed to have a secret son. Whether it’s a red herring or not and how much Bonnie knows remains to be seen.
Last season the show revolved around Annalise Keating getting back to what she does best and it featured a fantastic crossover with Scandal, which recently completed its series run. The mystery around Wes’ (Alfred Enoch) death was concluded (we think) but it’s looking likely that Laurel (Karla Souza) will still be a key focus given that her mother has disappeared and all signs point to her being involved.
