'A Million Little Things' Season 2: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and everything you need to know about ABC's family drama
Created by DJ Nash, 'A Million Little Things' season two stars an ensemble cast including David Giuntoli, Romany Malco, Allison Miller and Christina Moses
Bring out your tissue boxes and prepare to cry your heart out as 'A Million Little Things' returns to ABC with a second season. Created by DJ Nash, the series stars an ensemble cast including David Giuntoli, Romany Malco, Allison Miller, and Christina Moses.
While season one had 17 episodes, the second chapter's number will go up by two more. "ABC actually wanted 22 episodes," Nash reveals. I wanted 18. We [compromised] with 19," he told TV Line and added that he did so in order to retain the authenticity.
"I feel like the compliment our show gets that mean the most to me is that it's authentic. The thing I love most about our show is flipping cards. For instance, you think Katherine [Grace Park] is horrible and she ends up being someone you love. We flip cards — that's how we're built. I don't want to flip cards so much that it feels inauthentic."
ABC officially announced that the second season of 'A Million Little Things' will premiere on Thursday, September 26, at 9 pm as part of the network's fall TV lineup.
Set in Boston, the series revolves around a close-knit circle of friends who are shocked after a member of their group commits suicide. The show chronicles how it is a wake-up call to each member and how they cope up with his loss. The title refers to the thought that "friendship isn't a big thing—it's a million little things."
The official plot summary of the series reads: "A group of friends struggling in life get a wake-up call to finally start living after one of them dies unexpectedly."
David Giuntole plays the role of Eddie Saville, a music teacher and stay-at-home dad who is having marital problems. The actor is best known for the lead role of Detective Nick Burkhardt in the NBC supernatural drama 'Grimm'.
Allison Miller essays the role of Maggie Bloom, a therapist and Gary's love interest. She previously starred in TV series like 'Kings', 'Terra Nova', 'Go On' and 'Incorporated'.
Romany Malco plays Rome Howard, who yearns to accomplish something more meaningful with his life. The actor was seen in 'A Little Bit Of Heaven' and the 'Gulliver's Travels' adaptation. He also starred as Jay in Judd Apatow’s 2005 film 'The 40 Year Old Virgin' and as Conrad Shepard in the television series 'Weeds'.
ABC recently announced that Richard Kind will be a guest star in the second installment.
The other members of the cast include Christina Moses as Regina Howard, Christina Ochoa as Ashley Morales, Grace Park as Katherine Kim, James Roday as Gary Mendez, Stéphanie Szostak as Delilah Dixon, Tristan Byon as Theo Saville and Lizzy Greene as Sophie Dixon.
DJ Nash created the emotional family drama television series for ABC. The producer and writer is also known for his work on 'Til Death' (2006) and 'Traffic Light' (2011).
He also executive produced the series with Aaron Kaplan, Dana Honor and James Griffiths. The show has been produced by ABC Studios in association with Kapital Entertainment, Next Thing You Know Productions and Fee-Fi-Fo Films.
