ABC has announced that its ensemble relationship drama A Million Little Things will end this spring after five seasons. The now final season will open on the alphabet network on Wednesday, February 8 at 10 p.m. ET.
“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 five seasons and leave them when the time was right,” said creator DJ Nash in a statement. “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 also so grateful that ABC now makes mental health awareness one of the top issues for which it advocates,” he added.
Debuting on September 26, 2018, A Million Little Things follows a tight-knit circle of friends who gather after a member of the group unexpectedly dies by suicide. The cast includes David Giuntoli, Romany Malco, Allison Miller, Christina Moses, Grace Park, and James Roday Rodriguez. While never a top-rated entry via the traditional Nielsen ratings, A Million Little Things (a la the similar appeal thirtysomething three decades earlier) was nonetheless an attraction for the coveted adult 18-49 demographic group. A total of 74 episodes, to-date, have been produced for A Million Little Things prior to this final fifth season.
