By releasing the official synopsis and sneak peek images of "How to Get Away with Murder" season 3 premiere episode, ABC has planted many questions in the minds of its fans. While the short summary indicates a new mystery, the images hint at a character-oriented plot.

Although it is not clear whether the upcoming season will revolve around Keating 5 or a new mystery, the promotional photos introduce a new character to viewers. The role will be played by Behzad Dabu of "Chicago PD" fame. In the images, he is seen interacting with the young associates of Prof. Annalise Keating outside the classroom.

However, the character details of the new cast member have been kept under wraps. So the followers of Shonda Rhimes' crime thriller will have to wait a little longer to find out whether he is related of the defence attorney or any of her associates.

Meanwhile, for those who are expecting a Hapstall story this year, creator Pete Nowalk has made it very clear that his team is not planning a case for the season. According to him, the series will definitely have a mystery for the season, which will take viewers through several flash forward sequences and "rock everyone's world" but no "trial of the season."

While interacting with the representative of E! News, the executive producer even teased a "character driven" season that will primarily explore the personal and social lives of Annalise's young associates. In his words, "everyday-ness of their relationships, their love lives, and their inter-group dynamics" will be the prime focus of the segment.

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.
