Mary J. Blige is set to guest star on the upcoming third season of How To Get Away With Murder … and the queen of ‘No More Drama’ just may be bringing some trouble.
Details of her role and the storyline for Season 3 are being kept under wraps, but Viola Davis did tell Deadline there’s a “new mystery” that tops what fans have seen before from the show.
“It’s going to be presented very quickly in the first episode,” said Davis, and with that, creator Pete Nowalk “explores the relationships in a much deeper way.”
Blige has been making the transition from a mega-career as a singer-songwriter to acting. She just finished the Dee Rees-directed Mudbound alongside Jason Mitchell, Jason Clarke, Garrett Hedlund and Carey Mulligan. Earlier this year, she starred as Evillene in The Wiz Live! on NBC, a role that earned her a Critics’ Choice TV Award nomination. Blige also appeared on ABC’s hit comedy series Black-ish and Empire on Fox.
How To Get Away With Murder returns to TV screens Sept. 22 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC. Check out the killer trailer below.
