Deciding to end this series was a brutal decision, but ultimately the story tells you what to do – as it did here. For me, Annalise Keating's journey has always had a clear ending. Knowing I have 15 episodes left to finish her story, and the chance to give all the characters their own killer endings, is a gift rarely given to a network series creator. I’m grateful to ABC for the opportunity and creative freedom. I am also beyond thankful to the brilliant cast, writers, and crew for dedicating themselves to this show for the last six years. Finally, I want to thank our fans. HTGAWM only exists because of your loyalty and enthusiasm. I can't wait for you all to see how it ends. Buckle up. #htgawm #thankyou
