“How To Get Away With Murder” Season 2 is not the last season after all. The finale featured another murder, and we all know where this leads right? A new murder equals an all-new season, perhaps?
The “How To Get Away With Murder” season 2 finale showed Wes coming face-to-face with his rapist father, the man who assaulted his mother about 20 years ago and whose deed created his life. As Wes was about to reach his father, Wallace Mahoney, a gunman fires a shot and Mahoney is knocked out dead, as reported by TV Line.
The murder may not be something that fans should celebrate, but that particular death may have hinted the show will have another season! And there is, series creator Pete Nowalk confirmed.
In an interview, Nowalk revealed that a season 3 for “How To Get Away With Murder” will definitely happen. Moreover, there might be a shift in the show’s focus, giving more attention towards Wes.
Nowalk was asked, “Shifting gears to Wes witnessing Wallace’s death. Can we assume that Wallace’s wife and son – played by Roxanne Hart and Wilson Bethel – will play fairly prominent roles in Season 3? Is that an arc you absolutely have to play out right?”
Nowalk then responded, “That’s not for sure at all. I love those actors, so it’s a definite possibility, but I’m just going to give myself like a month, and then I’m going to start diving in.”
He also said, “We’ll answer that sometime in Season 3. Since we haven’t written it yet, I don’t know when exactly [we’ll reveal], but that’s something that we might answer right away or we might make you wait a little bit.”
This shift might be a good idea. Variety reported that the series needed to divert the show’s attention or think about deviating from the current story if they want the show to be more successful in television. In fact, it was stated that the series had lost 20% of its overall viewers during the first quarter of 2015.
