On ABC, where Grey’s Anatomy and so many of Shonda Rhimes previous shows have excelled, A Million Little Things has settled in as one of the more recent popular dramas for the network. The show is returning for its fourth season this fall.

A Million Little Things was created by D.J. Nash, whose previous credits include Til Death, Traffic Light and Bent. The show premiered on ABC in 2018.

Heading into the fourth season, here is what you need to know about A Million Little Things.

What is the plot of ‘A Million Little Things’?

The events of A Million Little Things kick off after a member of a close-knit group of friends dies unexpectedly. This serves as motivation for them all to live their lives to the fullest, though of course there are plenty of obstacles in the way.

SPOILER ALERT as we give a quick recap of the events that ended season three and are expected to be picked up in season four.

The final moments of A Million Little Things’ third season saw Gary go to the home of the music teacher that had been sexually abusing Sophie after the police said there wasn’t anything they could do. After the teacher answers the door, Gary puts a bag over his head and pushes him back inside. This was just one of the major plot points involving Gary in the season finale, as he also brought up the idea of having kids with Darcy, something she was hesitant about. However, she later has a change of heart and tries to call Gary, but he misses her call as he deals with the music teacher.

Among the other characters: Delliah wants to move back to France with the kids; Regina decided to close her store; Tyrell learned the reason that his mother got deported; Eddie agreed to joint custody with Katherine and promised he wouldn’t get back on drugs, and he also received a call from the woman who claims to have caused his accident.

There’s certainly plenty of storylines to build on in season for, which has its first episode titled “Family First,” though no plot details are available at time of publication.
