ABC's ensemble drama 'A Million Little Things' is coming back with season two. The show, which revolves around a group of friends in Boston who are all stuck in their lives until one of them dies unexpectedly, is expected to bring back the next season in late September with lots of twists and turns in the plot. With the main cast returning for season two, Lizzie Greene will be back on the show as Sophie Dixon, a moody 15-year-old. Season one of the show saw the friends trying to get to the bottom of their friend's suicide, unraveling disturbing facts and unexpected twists.
In an exclusive interview with MEA World Wide (MEAWW), Lizzie Greene spoke about her role in the show and transition from a child actor into an adult on TV. "You definitely have to grow up really fast and gain a mature mindset pretty early on; it is a blessing and a curse to grow up in the spotlight but I look at the bright side — at how much I have learned and how much I have grown [sic.]," said the 16-year-old actor. She added that she's really grateful to be where she is right now and the most special part being when fans come up and say that "they have grown up with me — it's just so special!"
"When you're on Nickelodeon and Disney, you can get branded as a child actress and you have got to burst out of that bubble when you can — when the time is right," said the actor about moving away from her roles on Nickelodeon. Greene is well known for her role as Dawn Harper in Nickelodeon's 'Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn'. About being part of the cast of 'A Million Little Things', Greene said that the all-star cast was "so incredible" and it's "like going to acting class every day because I get to learn from them and everything."
"We're like a big family," said the actor, who's super excited about season two of the show. 'A Million Little Things' also stars David Giuntoli, Romany Malco, Allison Miller, Christina Moses, Christina Ochoa, Grace Park, James Roday, Stephanie Szostak, and Ron Livingston. The show is created by DJ Nash, who executive produces it along with Aaron Kaplan, Dana Honor and James Griffiths.
'A Million Little Things' season two will air on ABC on Thursday nights at 9 pm ET.
