Essence just unveiled six (yes, six!) covers for its October issue, and it’s a #TGIT/Shondaland takeover.

Shonda Rhimes, Chandra Wilson, Viola Davis and Kerry Washington each nab solo covers, while the equally talented supporting casts of Grey’s Anatomy (James Pickens, Jr., Jason George, Jerrika Hinton, Kelly McCreary) and How to Get Away with Murder (Alfred Enoch, Aja Naomi King, Billy Brown) land the remaining two.

Fun fact: Chandra, Viola and Kerry have all earned Primetime Emmy Award nominations for their work on their respective shows.

Inside the issue, find out what drew Viola to the character of Annalise Keating, what it’s really like working for Shonda and a whole lot more.

We love it!

#TGIT returns on September 24 at 8 p.m.
