How to Get Away With Murder season 3
Viola Davis as Annalise Keating in HTGAWM season 3 ABC

Viola Davis appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on 19 September and shared some details about the plot of How To Get Away With Murder season 3. She also spoke about filming sex scenes on the show with host Ellen DeGeneres.

The talk show host asked her guest, "What is happening this time [on How To Get Away With Murder season 3]", to which Davis replied, "I have no idea. I am just like... there is a mystery, that they introduce in the first episode and we are trying to figure it out."

Davis then told DeGeneres, "I told them no more sex scenes." The 51-year-old actress then recalled one scene that left her injured. "They threw me up against the wall in the first season and I threw my back out for two weeks – and my hip. So I limped around for two weeks and I said 'no more walls'."

Davis, who won an Emmy for portraying Annalise Keating in the ABC show last year, admitted that she will film sex scenes only with certain movement boundaries. "I just want to be on a bed and I don't want to move. I don't want anyone on top of me and I don't want to be on top of anyone else," she joked.

How To Get Away With Murder season 3 premieres on Thursday (22 September) at 10pm EST on ABC Network. Episode 1 is titled We're Good People Now, wherein the Keating 5 and Annalise will try to move on with their lives following the events of the season 2 finale.

The official synopsis reads as follows:

With Wallace Mahoney's murder unsolved and Frank's whereabouts unknown, the "Keating 5" struggle to move on with their lives as they enter into their second year of law school. Meanwhile, Annalise's reputation at Middleton University is on the line, so she creates a criminal law clinic where the students will compete to try their own pro bono cases. Annalise also wrestles with a decision involving Frank that could change everything.
