The antics of these three siblings will have you adoring every scene of this relatable show
'Everything's Gonna Be Okay' premiered on January 17 with Episode 1 'Seven Spotted Ladybug', bringing tears of laughter as three children deal with the death of their father. Already bringing in the realities of dealing with autism, parenting and simply growing up, the show has melted fans' hearts.
"Somehow I went from tearing up while they were all standing around the casket to laughing hysterically at it almost falling. My emotions are wrecked. #EverythingsGonnaBeOkay" tweeted a fan about a scene that sees Nicholas and his half-sisters Genevieve and Matilda experience the odd audacities during their father's funeral.
The show brings into account the challenging task of Nicholas now having to parent his two teenage sisters — one of whom has autism — while he still tries to move forward in this personal life.
Coming from a tad bit of a mess when it comes to family dynamics, the antics of this trio will have you aww-ing at every scene with its relatable content and direct unfiltered comedy. "#EverythingsGonnaBeOkay is just precious, we need some preciousness right now," tweeted another fan.
From teenage drama involving high school crushes to Maeve's nonchalant attitude towards most things, it's impossible for you to not want more of the trio as the season continues to air. "#EverythingsGonnaBeOkay i really like the show!!!!!!!!! i already feel attached to the characters!!!!," a fan tweeted our exact sentiments.
The awareness that illness of any sort has different coping mechanisms, especially when it comes to a family reeling from the loss of their father and how they navigate the world without a 'know-it-all' adult is the center of Episode 1.
Josh Thomas serves as writer, showrunner, and stars as Nicholas, a neurotic 25-year old that has now become a guardian.
"I'm meant to be live-tweeted #EverythingsGonnaBeOkay but I haven't had anything to say! We tried our best! I hope you like it! Thanks for watching!" tweeted Thomas. Needless to say, fans responded to his genius direction, "The first episode of #EverythingsGonnaBeOkay broke my heart, made it laugh, and warmed it up all at the same time. Thank you @JoshThomas87," tweeted a fan in appreciation.
It seems as though Josh Thomas has killed it, and there's not a show like this on air to date. "Just finished the first episode of #EverythingsGonnaBeOkay and bravo #Freeform! Such a refreshing show with an enjoyable cast and interesting, unique plot line!" tweeted another fan. We completely agree!
