A Million Little Things Season 5: What to expect?
The producers had accepted the Season 5 pickup with the presumption it was going to be the show’s final installment, and that is how the season was conceived, quote, “I know seeing this show end may be sad for many people (especially my mom who watches live every week), but I always knew I wanted to follow these friends for 5 seasons and leave them when the time was right,” said AMLT creator and executive producer DJ Nash, who drew on personal experience for the series.
“When we started making our show, I never could have imagined this incredible community of ‘Millionaires’ who would come together and not only watch, but also share with each other their personal struggles, their pain, and ultimately their true grit. I am both honored and humbled by all of it and am so in awe of the incredible actors, writers, directors, and crew who lend their talent to make our show. I am also so grateful that ABC now makes mental health awareness one of the top issues for which it advocates. Terrence and I can’t wait for the Millionaires to watch what we have planned for our final season.”
Additionally, the following confirmed additional details about the Season 5 plot follow: The group is present for Gary, The fallout of what Anna has done, New challenges for Katherine and Greta, Katherine learning how to be present in Eddie’s life without being too involved, Delilah potentially returning “for a few episodes,” more videos made by Gary for his baby, Maggie will become Gary’s “caretaker” as he learns to accept being helped.
Additionally, Season 5 “will be a direct pick-up from where” the Season 4 finale ended, Rome and Regina will struggle to respect Gary’s privacy wishes, Maggie and Gary will continue to “live life on their terms,” Eddie will decide whether or not to keep Anna in his life and, if he does, how it will affect his relationship with Katherine and his co-parenting of Theo, with Katherine and Greta’s happiness being very road-tested.
