Viola Davis and Her HTGAWM Castmates Thank Fans Before 'Bittersweet' Series Finale

Viola Davis and her How to Get Away with Murder costars want fans to know how much they appreciate the support of their show over the last six seasons.

In PEOPLE's exclusive featurette, the cast sends thank you messages to viewers ahead of Thursday's series finale.

"Thank you for bringing yourself into it and opening yourself up for 42 minutes and inviting us into your lives because it's been a hell of a ride," Davis, who stars as lawyer and former professor Annalise Keating, says in the video.

Alfred Enoch, who played law student Wes Gibbins, apologizes to fans for all the plot twists the show employed since its 2014 debut.

Davis, 54, says she "thought I was ready" to part with the Shonda Rhimes series, but it "creeps up on you."

"It is just saying goodbye to a show that has really changed my career and I think in a huge way it shifted the face of television," Davis, whose work on the show earned her an Emmy in 2015, concludes. "It's been bittersweet. It's like saying goodbye to a family member."
