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, having completed its fourth season.

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.

Here is everything you need to know about A Million Little Things season 4.

How to watch A Million Little Things season 4

Now that A Million Little Things has aired its season 4 finale, fans can catch up with the entire season through a couple of different ways.

The first is through ABC.com, which is available to anyone that has a traditional pay-TV or live TV streaming subscription service that carried ABC. This can include FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV and YouTube TV.

The Hulu streaming service is available as a standalone offering (with an ad-supported and ad-free option), as well as part of the Disney Bundle, giving you Hulu, Disney Plus and ESPN Plus for a single monthly fee. In addition, anything available on Hulu is also included if you are a subscriber to Hulu with Live TV.

Will there be A Million Little Things season 5?

No need to worry about the fate of A Million Little Things after the season 4 finale airs on May 18, as ABC has announced that the drama is returning for its fifth season as part of the network's 2022-2023 TV lineup. When exactly it's going to return though is still TBD, though we do know it won't be until midseason.

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 4.
