Created by Peter Nowalk and produced by Shonda Rhimes, How to Get Away with Murder Season 3 has 15 episodes and each episode will be aired every Thursday night at 10.00pm ET/PT.
Award-winning actress, Viola Davis reprises her lead role as Annalise Keating, criminal defense attorney and law professor at Middleton University whose cheating husband Sam and his mistress Lila, were murdered in the first season.

The premiere episode is titled “We’re Good People Now” and was directed by Bill D’Elia.
