There’s no denying that How to Get Away With Murder is one seductive TV show.
When the hit ABC series first premiered last September, it garnered as much attention for its progressive sex scenes as it did for Viola Davis’ Emmy-winning performance as Annalise Keating. Not only did Murder’s first three episodes feature explicit gay sex scenes, but it also forced media outlets to put “rim job” in headlines.
So when the show returns for season two on Thursday, Sept. 24, creator Pete Nowalk promises that HTGAWM will continue to satisfy audiences. “Sex is part of the framework of the show,” he says, explaining that “the characters are definitely sexual.”
“In the third episode, they represent a client who is accused of murder at a sex party,” he adds. So yes, there will be plenty of sex, especially in the first few episodes of the new season.
When asked what sex position everyone will be talking about, Nowalk makes reference to the upcoming sex party. “The title of the third episode is ‘The Octopus,’ so you can Google that,” he teases.
Oh, we did.
As for other sexy moments on the show, fans can expect more shirtless scenes from Frank (“[Charlie Weber]’s quite a lumberjack, that one”), even more penis dialogue from Annalise (“I can’t even count”), and dancing from Asher (played by Matt McGorry).
“What’s great about Matt is that he brings some dancing to scenes where there was no dancing,” Nowalk says of the actor. “If you want some dancing, there’s a DVD extra. It’s an Asher rap video that he made back in college that’s actually going to factor into our plot this season. So you should go watch that.”
