(LOS ANGELES) — ABC announced its fall premiere dates on Tuesday for new and returning shows, including Dancing with the Stars, Modern Family, Scandal and Shonda Rhimes’ upcoming series How to Get Away With Murder.

Scandal will kick off its fourth season on Sept. 25, the same night How to Get Away With Murder will bow. The latter stars Viola Davis, who will play a law professor with a questionable moral compass. While promoting the show at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills on Tuesday, she compared her new gig to being invited to a “really fabulous party.”
