A Million Little Things Season 4 - What We Know So Far

Life's too short. Que sera sera. YOLO. 

There are many ways to express the fact that we're only on this Earth once, so you need to live every day to the fullest. While that doesn't necessarily mean you should eat an entire gallon of ice cream in one sitting, it does mean that your time with family and friends is limited. Call that person you haven't spoken to in a while. Tell that special someone you love them. Don't let a fear of rejection get in the way of you feeling fulfilled. 

That's basically the philosophy behind the first three seasons of the ABC drama, A Million Little Things, where a group of friends struggle with how to live their lives in the aftermath of someone in their group passing away. It's the kind of heart-wrenching drama that will make you think about how your life is going and who you're spending it with. It's currently in the midst of its third season, but it's never too early to start looking toward the future. While a season 4 renewal hasn't been announced yet, the show's popularity suggests fans should remain hopeful. In its third season, the show has averaged over 3 million viewers per episode, so unless something unexpected occurs, a fourth season should be on the horizon (via TV Series Finale). Here's what we know about A Million Little Things season 4 so far. 

What's the release date for A Million Little Things season 4?

A Million Little Things is one of ABC's premier dramas that's historically had autumn release dates. The first two seasons debuted in September of 2018 and 2019; however, that all changed in 2020 with the COVID-19 pandemic delaying most upcoming films and TV shows. As such, the serialized drama debuted its third season in November. 

It's unclear as of now whether those delays will continue to impact the series going into 2021. In the event of a fourth season materializing, then the most probable scenario would be for it to come out in the fall of this year with a good chance of it being between September and November. In the meantime, season 3 of the series has been on hiatus since December 17, 2020 with its return set for March 11, 2021 (via Elite Daily). From that point, new episodes should be released every Thursday night. 

Who's in the cast for A Million Little Things season 4?

With an ensemble cast, there are plenty of plot threads for the show to explore moving forward. Unless season 3 has some surprises we're unaware of yet, audiences should expect the main cast to reprise their roles for season 4. Fans can feel confident in the return of musician and recovering alcoholic, Eddie Saville (David Giuntoli), who's married to Katherine Kim (Grace Park), a lawyer who's no longer as fun as her friends sometimes wish she was. 

Other characters that stand a good chance of coming back include Rome Howard (Romany Malco), Regina Howard (Christina Moses), Gary Mendez (James Roday Rodriguez), and Maggie Bloom (Allison Miller). Season 3 has introduced us to the newest recurring addition to the cast — Chris Geere as Jamie Clark (via Deadline). At the end of season 2, Maggie moved to the United Kingdom with Jamie as her new roommate. It remains to be seen if the Detective Pikachu actor becomes a regular member of the cast, but if he's received warmly enough going forward, then there's likely a good chance.

What's the plot of A Million Little Things season 4?

One of the reasons why A Million Little Things is so beloved by its fan base is that it focuses on the little moments in life. Everyone has their stories to tell, and with each new season comes a new set of trials and tribulations to overcome. So far in season 3, we've seen Eddie continue to grapple with the car accident he suffered in the previous season, and as a result, he's broken his sobriety and started taking prescription medication. 

The season 2 finale also saw Rome and Regina experience a massive loss when the mother of the child they planned to adopt decided to keep the baby, even after they had already settled on a name for it. Show creator DJ Nash has also gone on the record saying that future season 3 episodes will explore current events, stating, "The way COVID hits this world and the way Black Lives Matter is going to hit this group of friends – it's going to be very moving" (via Deadline). 

It's hard to know for certain what direction season 4 will take without knowing how season 3 ends. Will Eddie get back onto the path of sobriety? Will Gary end up starting a romantic relationship with Maggie? Fans are waiting on bated breath for answers to these questions and more until an official season 4 announcement arrives.
