The Final Season of A Million Little Things Premieres Wednesday Feb 8 at 10pm e/p exclusively on W Network in Canada.
Season four saw our “A Million Little Things” friend group face many challenges. Some humorous, others heartbreaking, but all made easier by the love and support these friends show each other.
After his accident left him wondering if he’d ever be the person he was before, Eddie proved to himself and the people he loves that the answer was no; he’d be even better. By allowing those who count on him to witness his true grit, Eddie has become an even more important role model than he could have possibly imagined. This season, with Delilah and Charlie still in France, Eddie will face the challenge of being a long-distance co-parent, all while pursuing a new career path helping others who’ve gone through similar challenges.
Season four saw Katherine find the courage to confront her past and come to terms with her sexuality, finally coming out to her family and friends as she developed a romance with her high school crush, Greta. This season, we’ll see if Katherine can forge a lasting relationship with Greta while navigating a complicated co-parenting relationship with Eddie on a journey that ultimately reflects on true love and what it really means to be a family.
Last season, we saw Rome make the decision to face his past trauma and begin teaching at the school where he was discriminated against as a teenager. In the process, Rome was able to be there for a student who was also ostracized, helping them reclaim their voice in a way Rome’s own teachers did not. This season, we’ll see Rome tackle a different kind of challenge, one more personal and heartbreaking, as he deals with his father’s health problems. But using humor as a coping mechanism as he always does, Rome has the pleasant discovery that his relationship with his only living parent might just be stronger than he thought.
As for Regina, she finally put the heartbreak of her failed restaurant behind her and started a successful new food truck enterprise. As this new mom to a foster child must suddenly cope with having an empty nest, Regina turns her attention to work, finding that being on a food truck puts her out in front of her community in a way that will change her life forever.
Sophie and Danny came into their own as young adults last season. Danny with his first true romantic relationship, and Sophie processing her sexual assault and beginning to heal. Season five will find them both leaning on their surrogate parents when they need them the most and finding the strength to return that favor in some beautiful and unexpected ways.
Finally, back together and stronger than ever, Gary and Maggie set their sights on having a child last season, but just as they got good news amidst their difficult fertility journey, Gary learned his cancer was back. This season will be a challenging one for Maggie, balancing her pregnancy, a demanding job as a successful radio host, and her worry over what the future holds for her and her growing family. Gary, faced with his own mortality, must make some difficult choices about his future that force him to do the one thing that’s always been the hardest for him — need someone.
As the fifth and final season unfolds, we’ll watch through laughter and tears as we bring this incredible journey to its conclusion. Along the way, we’ll explore the depths of friendship, love and sorrow as we bid this special family of friends goodbye, once again proving that friendship really is a million little things.
