Viola Davis' popular drama How To Get Away With Murder is set to be removed from Netflix as the streamer's deal approaches its expiration date.
Originally released on ABC, the thriller series allowed fans of crime and mystery to get wrapped up in the lives of criminal defence lawyer Annalise Keating (Davis) and her group of aspiring law students.
Annalise proves her talent as a lawyer as she both helps to solve cases both in and out of the courtroom with the help of her team and top class members, made up of cast members including Gilmore Girls' Liza Weil, Jack Falahee, Aja Naomi King and Matt McGorry.
The series ran from 2014 to 2020 and gained more fans when it arrived on Netflix, with the final series dropping in June 2020.
It continues to entertain both new and old fans on the streaming service, but a joint investigation between What’s on Netflix and TheWrap has revealed Netflix's deal relating to How to Get Away with Murder expires before the end of 2024.
That means, unless the streamer agrees to an extension, fans will have to bid goodbye to Michaela's girl boss energy, Connor's charm and Annalise's no-nonsense attitude.
UNILAD has contacted Netflix for a comment.
It's sad news for those who find themselves turning back to the series when they're looking to be captivated by a bit of intensity, with many fans admitting to rewatching the series as they just can't get enough.
One fan wrote on Twitter: "S5 of How To Get Away With Murder is on Netflix so obviously I'm starting the whole series again how is this show so underrated I mean VIOLA DAVIS IS SO SPECTACULAR I CANT COPE."

Davis has previously said the show is one she wanted to stick with audiences, noting there are controversial and poignant moments in each and every series.
Speaking to Variety about the show, she commented: “Everything from taking the wig off to my sexuality and not putting a finger on that. Everything with Bonnie and her being a sex abuse survivor. Everything with Connor and Oliver and really getting a front row private seat into the day to day life of a gay couple.
"The cases and the interracial love affairs that have happened. And certainly some of the risk-taking in terms of scenes, like where I tell the kids to shoot me or where Bonnie is encouraging Frank to not shoot himself and I’m encouraging him to shoot himself.”
Though it seems like we still have a bit of time to enjoy the show before its expiration date, fans better savour the characters while they still can.
