‘A Million Little Things’ Season 2 Is Officially A Go

This is exciting news!

Fans of the ABC TV show “A Million Little Things” will be glad to hear this news: The freshman ensemble drama has officially been renewed for a second season.

ABC announced the renewal in early February. Though the show initially received middling ratings, its viewership began improving after a midseason switch to a Thursday night timeslot.

“A Million Little Things,” as Variety describes it, “tries to do for friends what ‘This Is Us’ did for families.”

The series focuses on a group of adult friends from Boston who are all at different places in their lives. While some feel stuck in a rut, others are enjoying a successful career or blossoming relationships. The group comes back together after one of their own, Jon (played by Ron Livingston), takes his own life with no warning. The incident makes them begin to reevaluate their own lives and friendships

Here’s a look at the trailer for the freshman season, in case you need a reminder:

ABC network president Karey Burke told TVLine that just as Jon’s suicide propelled the first season of “A Million Little Things,” another mystery will spur on its second season. “There will [be a new mystery], but I can’t tell you [what it is],” she said.

Besides Livingston, “A Million Little Things” stars James Roday, David Giuntoli, Romany Malco, Grace Park, Allison Miller, Christina Moses and Stephanie Szostak. So far, the plot has taken on a variety of important issues, including depression, divorce, romance, suicide and family dynamics.

The show shared news of its renewal on its official Facebook page with the following video:

From the looks of the comments left on the Facebook post, fans of the show couldn’t be more excited about the news.

“Thank goodness ABC had the brains and good taste to renew this wonderful and compelling series A Million Little Things! Those of us who look forward to it each week thank you very much!” one commenter wrote.

Another chimed in to thank the network as well, saying, “Thank you ABC! You give me a reason to turn on my TV.”

“A Million Little Things” isn’t the only ABC show to score an early renewal. The network also announced the pending return of its sophomore drama “The Good Doctor” and veteran reality show “Shark Tank.” Despite speculation that “Modern Family” would be axed after season 10, the long-running family comedy will also return to the ABC lineup for an 11th and final season.
