It’s a good decision. I binged through this last season after it ended, because I had decided to quit the show. I gave a shot and saw the whole season and man, it REALLY needs to end. It’s so tired and repetitive. I knew this was gonna happen with season 6 as the show can’t possibly be that popular, important and I already knew it wasn’t necessary at all anymore. So it was either this, or a 6 episode 7th season or something. They weren’t gonna cancel this show, although with Shonda out of ABC, why not?
Davis will be fine of course. I hope the other cast members can get some great gigs after this. They’re all very good actors. I can already see the Frank guy in some quickly canceled or zero buzzed “action” show from CBS or NBC in the next pilot cycle. It’s so obvious.July 11, 2019 at 11:20 am #1202971063
Davis leveraged this show to leverage landing a prominent film career. While there she made history with the TV Academy then secured her triple crown standing with Oscar.

I felt it was coming, but I wasn’t prepared as I thought i’d be for the actual news. But it is a known fact… many things we enjoy and love must come to an end. This was a literal event for me on Thursday nights, and I HAD to watch it live! Viola Davis continues to impress me in any medium, and what a ride this was! Bring on the last 15!
On a positive note, this will clearly free her to do some of these pending film projects she’s had in the works forever. I’d have to believe the reason alot of them haven’t been completed is large in part due to her busy tv filming schedule.July 11, 2019 at 2:56 pm #1202971410
I really hope that Liza Weil can finally get nominated for Supporting ActressJuly 11, 2019 at 4:37 pm #1202971479
It’s about time for the show to end, as this has been an even slower three years of law school than on The Paper Chase. But I do hope that there is a great death scene or something juicy for Ophelia so that Cicely Tyson can finally win that long overdue 4th Emmy.July 11, 2019 at 6:34 pm #1202971556
Season 5 should have been the end, so this is fine. And yes, I’m only really invested in Cicely Tyson’s overdue Emmy win for this role.July 11, 2019 at 8:03 pm #1202971627
This is sad news for a fan like me, but it’s time. Based off his social media, I think Pete Nowalk is going to give Viola Davis/Annalise Keating the send off of her life!July 16, 2019 at 8:54 am #1202977634
Oh, man do Viola Davis & Glynn Turman have a reason to celebrate on the Ma Rainey movie set today! Viola, Glynn & Cicely have been nominated WELL F’NG DONE!!!July 16, 2019 at 3:51 pm #1202979714
What’s even more impressive about this, despite the show never getting a boatload of nominations, is it’s consistently been recognized with acting nominations, which is truly one of it’s enduring strengths. They’ve had consistently great guest performers, and I hope this final season is no exception to that rule!!July 16, 2019 at 6:48 pm #1202980030
I was hoping that Liza Weil would have made it in Supporting ActressJuly 17, 2019 at 12:40 am #1202980536
I am so proud of our little Murder gang getting nominated! And this is still one of my favorite threads here because it’s just fans discussing, not haters who hate watch the show. ABC needs to push these three, HARD!
Oscar FYC - Lupita Nyong'o & Elisabeth Moss ("Us") - Best Actress & Supporting Actress. It must happen; otherwise the Tethered are coming.July 17, 2019 at 6:57 am #1202981099
SAY THAT, LUCA!
YES, they do need to push them! Glynn & Cicely have extremely great shots. I think Viola will be a more viable contender for the final season as i’m sure Pete is going to her the material to send her off with. But of course, i’d like to be proven wrong this year as well. But, I think Sandra has this. Otherwise, if Sandra loses, it’s wide open!
What episode do you all think Viola should submit? I think she should go with “It Was the Worst Day of My Life”.July 29, 2019 at 12:51 pm #1203001321
He Betrayed Us Both is one of the episodes that was submitted in ABC Studios’ FYC package. Viola Davis could submit that episode or one of the other episodes in the ABC Studios package.August 29, 2019 at 1:32 pm #1203046785
Marsha Stephanie Blake just nabbed a guest role in S6. She could be coming for Emmy nom #2.
