Sky Witness Sets UK Premiere Dates For ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ Season 5 & ‘For The People’ Season 2

Sky Witness has announced UK premiere dates for How To Get Away With Murder, which returns for Season 5, and For The People, which returns for its 2nd, and (after being cancelled in the May Upfront bloodbath) now final, season.

‘How To Get Away With Murder’ continues the story of Professor Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) and her associates and students who find themselves bound together by murder, deception, fear and guilt. Over the seasons, the series has used thought-provoking storytelling to bring societal issues to light, such as the right to a fair trial, racial inequalities in the justice system and mental illness.

As we head into Season 5, Annalise is back in the classroom after her big supreme court victory, and a new mystery is about to unfold. We rejoin Annalise as she selects students for her new legal clinic at Middleton and juggles job offers from competing firms, all while the Keating attempt to move on from last semester’s turmoil. And in a startling flash-forward, a new mystery is introduced, shaking things up for everyone.

The new season stars returning cast members Billy Brown, Jack Falahee, Aja Naomi King, Matt McGorry, Karla Souza, Charlie Weber, Conrad Ricamora, and Liza Weil. Joining them in the main cast this year are Rome Flynn as Gabriel, Amirah Vann as Tegan, and Timothy Hutton as Emmett.

‘For The People’ is set in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (a.k.a. “The Mother Court”). The series follows six talented young lawyers working on opposite sides of the law and handling the most high-profile and high-stakes federal cases in the country. These young lawyers were put to the test both personally and professionally as their lives intersect in and out of America’s most prestigious trial court.

In the season premiere, Sandra (Britt Robertson), with the help of new investigator Ted (Charles Michael Davis – ‘The Originals’), must defend a teenage gamer whose online argument unexpectedly ends with the death of a United States senator. On the prosecution’s side, Roger (Ben Shenkman) has a personal connection to the case and is determined to charge the teenager to the furthest extent of the law, pushing Kate (Susannah Flood) to her limits in the process. Meanwhile, Jay (Wesam Keesh) is tasked with defending New York’s most spoiled millennial from going to jail for her petty crimes.

How To Get Away With Murder‘ Season 5 will premiere in the UK on Sky Witness from Wednesday 26th June 2019 at 9pm, whilst ‘For The People‘ Season 2 premieres Wednesday 3rd July 2019 at 10pm.
