When Will ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ Season 2 Hit Netflix? Fill The Void With These 9 Other Shows While You Wait
With the season 2 finale of ABC’s How To Get Away With Murder on Thursday, March 17, fans are entering the terrible purgatory that occurs between television seasons, made worse by thrilling shows with twists and tantalizing cliffhangers. This can only be cured with new episodes, though re-watching old seasons can be effective. So, when will How To Get Away With Murder Season 2 be on Netflix? [UPDATE: According to a press release, Netflix will release HTGAWM Season 2 on April 16.]
Last year, Deadline reported that Netflix became the exclusive worldwide streaming home for HTGAWM Season 1. But, what about Season 2? While there is no official word from Netflix yet, I can guess about availability based one when the first season started streaming. According to NetflixLife.com, “The first season came to Netflix on Sep. 18, nearly seven full months since the shocking Season 1 finale aired on Feb. 26.” Season 2 premiered in the same fall time slot as the first season, though the finale is falling one month later. While this means the Netflix launch could be a little later, I doubt it will be by much. Previous seasons of other shows tend to hit Netflix just before a premiere. And, with HTGAWM Season 3’s anticipated fall premiere date, a September Netflix debut for Season 2 is not out of the question.
With a HTGAWM-less spring and summer (which is always a veritable television drought) ahead, fans are searching for other shows to fill this void. Here are 9 shows to watch if you love How To Get Away With Murder.
