All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

To hear that from Eve, of all people, is really unfathomable. This was just awful, awful writing.

Jan 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Annalise is, and will always be, THAT girl... Though we don't have the answers yet, one thing we can definitely count on is a bloody good season.

Oct 5, 2018 | Full Review…

By not going off the rails just yet, HTGAWM creates a bit of suspense and intrigue.

Sep 28, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

It's gonna be one of those seasons.

Sep 28, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Audience Reviews for How to Get Away With Murder: Season 5

  • Feb 11, 2021
    This season is fierce! Absolutely love that I'm still shouting at the TV!
  • Sep 08, 2020
    Shonda Rhône's' legal soap thriller continues to make people gasp and Empathize in all the right and intendedly wrong ways.
  • Jun 16, 2020
    Our favourite character must stay close to each other, because this season accumulated all the prior tension and stacked it into one, making this season one of the most tense season so far.
  • May 29, 2020
    Yes you did! Excellent season, well built, well written and thrilling
  • Apr 14, 2020
    I fell ill during the end of December and had to miss a 14 days of work and I was trying to distance myself from my family so I stayed in my room and had a marathon on Netflix of this show. I admit, it started out a bit slow for my taste, but boy, I sure am glad that I got through the temporary lull and stuck it out. I love when movies/tv keeps me guessing and this show most assuredly does that! You can't miss even one though, or you will be lost. Definitely cannot wait until the next season hits Netflix! 5 start for every season so far!
  • Apr 01, 2020
    I enjoy watching this tv series.
  • Mar 23, 2020
    The ending was AMAZING
  • Mar 05, 2020
    I really like this show and season but, once again, the show picks one character and dramatically changes their characterization in order to fit with the story they are telling. Last season it was Laurel and this season it is Nate.
  • Oct 09, 2019
    The best show have ever see
  • Aug 05, 2019
