Though it has a devoted following, A Million Little Things has never been a hit in the ratings. ABC gave it a plum timeslot, behind Grey’s Anatomy on Thursday nights, and it did pretty well. The programmers then moved it back to Wednesdays and the ratings faded. Will this drama find more viewers this year? Will A Million Little Things be cancelled or renewed for season five? Stay tuned.
An extended family drama series, A Million Little Things stars David Giuntoli, Romany Malco, Allison Miller, Christina Moses, Grace Park, James Roday Rodriguez, Floriana Lima, Tristan Byon, Lizzy Greene, and Chance Hurstfield with Stephanie Szostak recurring. Set in Boston, this series revolves around a tight-knit group of friends who are each feeling stuck in different aspects of their lives. Their worlds are rocked when one of them unexpectedly takes his own life and this horrific event serves as a wake-up call to the others. In season four, the group comes together once again in aspirational and uplifting ways as they help each other through life’s unpredictable curveballs. Friendship isn’t a big thing — it’s a million little things.
