Gary’s Mom On ‘A Million Little Things’ Could Help Reunite Him With Maggie

Gary spent a majority of his relationship with Maggie trying to get her to open up and share who she was with him. Ironically, though, he’s a lot more tight-lipped about his own past, especially when it comes to his estranged relationship with his mother. But all of those hidden feelings are about to come out into the open now that Marcia Gay Harden has been cast to play Gary’s mom, Alice, on A Million Little Things, which (hopefully) means all of those mommy issues are about to be explored.

According to TVLine, which first reported the news, Harden is expected to first appear in Episode 12, which is scheduled to air on Thursday, Feb. 6. Gary has spoken briefly about his mom in the past, explaining back in Season 1 that she’s the main reason why he refuses to ever celebrate his birthday. “I remember that feeling, waking up and realizing, ‘Today’s the day. Today is my birthday,’ especially as a kid,” Gary said at the time, before revealing how that perspective quickly changed after his parents had a huge fight at his seventh birthday party. A few months later, Gary’s mom decided to pack up all of her things and leave, but he always blamed his birthday as being the catalyst that caused her to abandon him at so young of an age.

Now, thanks to the official character description, viewers can now know what else prompted Alice to make such a monumental decision to leave her son. Evidently, she took off “to follow her acting dreams, knowing that the silver screen and Hollywood were calling.” Perhaps her return comes with the realization that she regrets her decision and hopes to make amends with her estranged son.

As of now it’s unclear exactly why Alice reappears in Gary’s life. Maybe the visit will ultimately lead to a reconciliation, giving Gary the closure he needs to fully allow himself to open up in a way he’s never been able to before. If that’s the case, it could bode well for the future of his relationship with Maggie. Perhaps mending fences with his mom will restore his faith in love and prompt him to try and win Maggie back.

Then again, it’s just as likely his mom will have the opposite effect, especially if their little rendezvous doesn’t go as well as one would hope. It could make him all the more closed off from the world. Either way, it should make for a compelling storyline, but whatever comes from the episode, it doesn’t sound like Alice’s stay will be for very long.

“I don’t want to understate how cool it was that she came up to do an episode of our show,” James Roday, who plays Gary, told TVLine about working with Harden. “I’ve been a fan for as long as I can remember. It was a real privilege for me to get to watch her do her thing, share the space and pick her brain.”

Given Roday’s statement, Harden’s appearance might just be a one-and-done episode, but, oh, what an episode it will be.

A Million Little Things: Will Maggie and Gary’s Relationship Survive The Reveal of Jason Ritter’s Character?

Since the season 2 premiere of A Million Little Things, fans have been wondering what the great mystery is with Jason Ritter’s character, Eric. Many theories abounded, including the possibility that Eric is Patricia’s (Melora Hardin), new boyfriend.

In season 2’s episode four, the perfect storm, we finally find out who Eric is and how he is going to shake everything up. Read on to find out how his connection will affect Maggie (Allison Miller) and Gary’s (James Roday) relationship. WARNING: Season 2 SPOILERS!

How does Jason Ritter’s character, Eric fit into Maggie’s life?

After three episodes of wondering who this mysterious Eric character is, the fourth episode finally reveals the truth. Maggie is completely caught off guard when her mother tells her that Eric has her deceased brother’s heart.

The truth is finally coming out. #AMillionLittleThings

Maggie was told that her brother, Chad died on impact so she is baffled as to how his organs could have been donated. Her mother has lied to her all these years. Patricia was able to go to the hospital and see Chad before he passed.

Maggie is fuming that her mother was able to say goodbye and she was not able to.

Why is Maggie so hurt and who does she confide in?

After finding out the lies her mother has been keeping from her, Maggie storms off through the rain. Eric catches up with her first and the two actually connect. Maggie confides in Eric first instead of Gary about why she is so upset.

Maggie tells Eric that her mother walled herself off from everyone after Chad died. Now she has found out the news that her mother has left her father and is hanging out with this young guy who has her brother’s heart.

Maggie already felt slighted because her mother was closer to Chad to begin with. The gap only grew when Chad passed away. Now, she’s even more upset because it turns out that her mother only came to Boston to visit Eric, not her.

She is having feelings of being second best to her brother yet again.

Ritter’s character, Eric quickly bonds with Maggie

The reason Maggie confides in Eric so easily is that she quickly finds that he has experienced a tragic loss, too. Eric lost his fiancé right after they got engaged. They rented a motorcycle at Martha’s Vineyard and he was driving when she died.

It is clear that Maggie feels an immediate deep connection with Eric after hearing about his fiancé’s tragic death.

After their talk, Maggie goes to the airport to make amends with her mother. Instead, she finds out that even on the day that Maggie had her surgery, Patricia was visiting Eric.

“Chad is dead. I am still here and you are still choosing him over me,” she screams at her mother.

After she realized that her mother only came to Boston to see Eric, she still ran to Eric for comfort. Gary saw their embrace and we can tell he is hurt.

Gary is becoming increasingly jealous of new-guy Eric

In the next scene, Gary sees a text from Eric on Maggie’s phone that says, “If you ever need to talk again, I’m here.” Now he is beyond hurt that Maggie confided in Eric before him. He gives Maggie the cold shoulder and tells Regina (Christina Moses) what’s going on.

In the preview for next week, we see Maggie embracing Eric yet again while crying. She also says, “The psychic said a part of him lives on. I think he meant Eric.”

We can see how Maggie is slowly getting closer and closer to Eric. Gary already has relationship issues because his mother left him at a very young age. This betrayal by Maggie is hitting him very hard. We are not sure that their relationship can handle it.

We will have to wait and see what happens to the Maggie-Gary-Eric love triangle in the next episode of A Million Little Things on ABC Thursday nights at 9 p.m.

Who Is Eric In ‘A Million Little Things’? Fans Need Answers About Him

Season 1 of A Million Little Things captivated audiences with mysterious figures who shook up the main characters’ lives. Season 2 has only just begun, but it seems like the show is continuing that trend with a brand new enigma of a character. Season 2 Episode 2 introduced Eric (Jason Ritter), who is already complicating things for Maggie (Allison Miller). But who is Eric in A Million Little Things? Fans might have to be patient while waiting for answers. Warning: Spoilers for Season 2 Episode 2 of A Million Little Things follow.

In the second episode of Season 2, Maggie’s mom Patricia (Melora Hardin) revealed that she wants to leave Maggie’s father and move to Boston. Maggie’s boyfriend Gary (James Roday) assumed she wanted to make the move to be closer to Maggie, and so at the end of the episode, he encouraged Maggie to go find Patricia at a restaurant where he thought she was eating alone. Maggie went, but when she arrived at the restaurant she couldn’t find Patricia. Instead, she struck up a conversation with Eric, who seemed to be a stranger. For a brief moment, it seemed like there might have actually been a flirtatious spark between the two, but all of that went away when Maggie saw Patricia greet Eric warmly by brushing his hair out of his face. It was enough to upset Maggie in a big way, and now audiences are trying to figure out his connection to Patricia and her family.

Right now, there are several possibilities for Eric’s identity. He could be Patricia’s secret boyfriend, and thus a big factor in her divorce and decision to move to Boston. However, they didn’t kiss or do anything else overtly romantic, so there’s a chance Eric could be a long-lost family member, too. Or, then again, he could just be Patricia’s real estate agent who she gave a warm thank-you greeting for finding her a new apartment in Boston.

No matter who Eric is, it’s clear he is “threatening to shake everything up,” at least according to series creator DJ Nash’s interview with Entertainment Weekly. He explained, “It’s a character that comes up based on stuff from the first season. Throughout the first half of the season, we follow the question: Who is this person? And then once it’s known who they are, their potential to shake up the world comes.”

Ritter talked to TVLine a bit more about his character’s place in the world of A Million Little Things. He said:

I will say that Eric is doing a super-complicated, delicate sort of dance. He’s trying to navigate a super-complicated situation, and he’s trying his best.

Ritter is scheduled to appear in multiple episodes of the show this season, so more details will likely be revealed soon. Until then, though, fans will just need to continue wondering how Eric will change things for Maggie and the people in her life.

Season 2 of A Million Little Things continues on Thursday, Oct. 10, at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.

‘Euphoria’ season 2 – release date, cast, trailers, and everything we know so far

Like Skins before it, Euphoria caused controversy for its depiction of a high school world filled with sex, drugs, and violence when it arrived on screens in the US in June 2019. But while it shocked some, it also became an instant hit, its explorations of issues like addiction, sexuality, and abuse given space to be raw, gritty, and real. Long before season 1’s cliffhanger ending unfurled, the Zendaya-starring series was confirmed to be returning for another season. Here’s everything we know about Euphoria season 2 so far.

When will Euphoria season 2 be released?

Although a second season has been confirmed by HBO, no official release date has been announced at present. If it follows the same pattern as season one though, it should air in June in the US, with a UK premiere to follow in August.

Where will Euphoria season 2 be shown in the UK?

The details have yet to be confirmed but expect it to be much the same as season 1, i.e. on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV.

Have we seen a trailer yet?

Sort of – a first look at Season 2 of Euphoria has been shared as part of HBO’s big 2020 preview trailer. It gives little away but is exciting enough as a starter. Watch it below.

Still not quite an official trailer, but star Sydney Sweeney teased the return of a handful of key characters at the Golden Globes on Instagram. No Zendaya in sight, but there’s still high chances she’ll be on board.

get ready for season two

Will Zendaya be in the new season?

It certainly looks like it. After Euphoria’s renewal was announced, the actor and musician tweeted: “Literally just got the call. Can’t say thank you enough for the support we’ve seen, wow…” Her reaction probably wouldn’t be quite so enthusiastic if she had been told she wouldn’t be involved in season 2.

Literally just got the call. Can’t say thank you enough for the support we’ve seen, wow… https://t.co/XJtdQaWaL9

There’s the question of how her character Rue would feature in the next batch of episodes, though. The season one finalé of Euphoria was certainly ambiguous and left a lot of viewers with the impression that she’d overdosed and died. However, creator Sam Levinson has confirmed she’s very much still alive and “has a big journey ahead of her”.

Who else will return for season 2?

Again, there’s no official confirmation of exactly who will return just yet but, apart from Zendaya, it seems likely that most, if not all, of the main characters will be present in season 2. We’ll definitely be seeing more of Fezco, with Levinson telling The Hollywood Reporter: “His story didn’t belong in season one, it belongs in season two.”

“Going into season two, we know who all of these characters are, so the possibilities of it become pretty exciting from a writing and filmmaking standpoint,” the show’s creator added, dropping another hint that we’ll see the first season’s characters opened up even more.

Will there be any new characters?

Yup! A casting call for season two has revealed a new set of Euphoria characters (and you can audition for them too, if you like). Check out the details of the characters below.

DARIAN: Male. 18+ to play 17. Any ethnicity. An outsider. Sensitive. Vulnerable. Mischievous. Could struggle with addiction. Definitely not the cool kid at school but one of the more interesting kids.

RAY: Male. 18+ to play 17. Any ethnicity. Attractive in a real and accessible way. Working class. Pure heart. Might be going nowhere in life but has a smile so genuine it’s not depressing. Scrappy but a fighter. Not verbose or educated – has all the words he needs.

AMI: Female. 18-20’s. Drug addict. Stripper. Hates her boyfriend. Talks shit. Can’t read a room. Can make a bad situation worse.

SERENA: Female. 50’s+, Caucasian. Sassy and tough. A real character. The kind of women who partied her whole life and attended every White Snake concert and now she has several different hustles just to make a living.

What’s going to happen in Euphoria season 2?

Mostly, your guess is as good as ours right now, but there are some storylines we can see continuing into the second season. It would be incredibly bizarre if the new episodes didn’t handle what happened to Rue after season 1’s end. There are also plenty of narrative arcs – Nate’s sexuality, Cassie and McKay’s relationship, Gia’s growing rebelliousness, Kat and Ethan’s future together and whether Kat is still working as a camgirl, and what happened to Jules after Rue left her on the train – that haven’t been rounded off yet. Season 2 could also explore the stories of some of the lesser-seen characters like Lexi, BB, and Ashtray.

What have the cast said about season 2?

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Jacob Elordi (who plays Nate Jacobs) said he doesn’t mind what happens to his character in the next season. “Whatever it is, I want him to have a life and I want it to be honest,” he said. “I truly don’t have any qualms about which direction it goes. I mean, obviously, it would be a lovely story if he turned out to be a real sunflower and lit up the world. But I definitely want it to be just true and real to his experience and I want it to kind of make sense. And I’m not sure what that looks like.”

Hunter Schafer (Jules), meanwhile, told Variety she’s hoping for some things to get worked out in season 2. “I feel like there’s been a lot of turmoil that’s been simmering below a lot of these characters’ surface so I hope a lot of this turmoil can be resolved,” she said.

How many episodes will there be in season 2?

An exact length of season 2 has yet to be confirmed by Levinson or HBO, but it seems safe to assume it’ll be a similar length as season 1 – eight episodes.

Will Drake be involved in season 2?

Drizzy served as one of Euphoria’s executive producers on season 1, but it’s unclear at the moment whether he’ll be involved in the follow-up series or not. He hasn’t mentioned the show on his social media accounts since the finale aired, but it seems like he enjoyed the experience so it’s possible he’ll return to the team. “To the entire cast and Sam you are truly a group I am in complete awe of,” he wrote on Instagram. “Thank you for these incredible creations and performances.”

How many more seasons will there be?

There could be more beyond the second season but don’t expect Euphoria to trundle on for ages. Levinson told THR he doesn’t have a set number of seasons in mind and noted there are always ways to expand the show, be that new characters or new plots. But HBO president Casey Bloys told TVLine he did see there being some boundaries to it. “Well, are in high school, so there are only so many seasons it can go,” he explained. “There’s a time limit.” We can imagine filming will continue to be based around the school then, which in reality, is California’s Ulysses S Grant High School.

The Witcher season 2 may be an entire year away, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a Continent’s worth of news, rumours, and story snippets to pore over in the meantime. Showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich has been in particularly chatty mood, spilling the beans on everything from the possibility to Mark Hamill showing up as Vesemir to the linear, more refined Witcher timeline that will make season 2 of the Netflix series far easier to follow.

So, whether you’re in the bathtub, tossing coins, or mumbling to yourself at a royal banquet (we’ve all been there), there’s never been a better time to catch up on all things related to The Witcher season 2 – it might even make the long wait a slightly more bearable one. Just make sure to bookmark this page and check back often; as soon as we find out more about news, rumours, and castings, it’ll be updated here.

The Witcher season 2 fast facts

  • The Witcher season 2 release date: 2021
  • The Witcher season 2 cast: Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra, Freya Allan
  • The Witcher season 2 showrunner: Lauren S. Hissrich
  • The Witcher season 2 writers: Lauren S. Hissrich; TBA

The Witcher season 2 release date

The Witcher season 2 was announced on October 31, 2019, some six weeks before the show’s first season debuted on Netflix. At the time, no season 2 release date was given, but we now have a far better idea of when to expect it thanks to one report, and one Reddit AMA.

Netflix announced in a statement (via Deadline) that pre-production will begin in “early 2020” (more on that in just a moment) with a view to a 2021 air date. Showrunner and series creator Lauren S. Hissrich doubled down on that The Witcher season 2 release date during a Reddit, AMA, writing, “We don’t yet have a target launch date for season 2, past 2021.” She did, however, offer a word of warning to those expecting it sooner rather than later: “We don’t want to rush the product. That doesn’t benefit anyone.”

At least we can rest easy in the knowledge that filming is just about to start, if it hasn’t already. Henry Cavill posted a video on Instagram where, among other things, he mentioned how he over-indulged over the festive break. Oh, and that pre-production starts on The Witcher season 2 “very soon.” That too.

P.S. Happy New Year! Henry Cavill

If you’re slightly concerned by the large gap between filming and the show’s 2021 release date, don’t be. Hissrich spoke to IGN and explained the long lead-in time was to “make sure that everyone on our team gets the time to do their job and do it to the best of their ability. So we’re making sure we have a lot of built-in cushion time for Season 2 so we don’t cram anything in at the last minute.”

Only three members of The Witcher season 2 cast have been confirmed. No prizes for guessing who. Yep, Henry Cavill is back as Geralt, while Anya Chalotra will be returning as Yennefer, as too will Freya Allan’s Ciri. Hissrich said of the news: “I’m so thrilled…we are able to confirm that we’ll be returning to The Continent again to continue telling the stories of Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri.”

Beyond that, there have been no other official announcements. Season 2 hasn’t begun filming yet, so we can expect possible casting news to trickle out over the coming months. At the very least, you’d expect bard-of-the-year Jaskier (Joey Batey) to sing a song or seven in the upcoming season. Roach will surely mount up again in 2021, too. Other possible comebacks, judging by the state of play after The Witcher ending, could include Eamon Farron’s nefarious Nilfgaard soldier Cahir and Mimi Ndiweni’s Fringilla.

Any newcomers? Maybe. Fan attention has been drawn towards a 2018 tweet from Mark Hamill, who, when asked about the possibility of playing Vesemir, replied, “I have no idea what this is or what it’s about but agree it could/should be played by me.”

Hamill stoked those fires again in December 2019 by saying: “They haven’t asked me to play Vesemir… yet. #CallMyAgent.” Hissrich added to the conversation with a cryptic eyes emoji and later followed up the idea in an interview with IGN, suggesting that Vesemir isn’t likely to play a part in season 2 but teasing that “Mark has always been of interest to me and interest to the project. We have not contacted his agent yet because we’re not casting the role quite yet, but that being said, I am loving what’s happening on the internet.”

Vesemir, much like Hamill’s iconic Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, acts as a curmudgeonly mentor and father figure. He also aids Geralt in his witcher training. It would be, as many fans have pointed out, a perfect fit.

Details are scarce, but the underlying mantra behind The Witcher season 2 story appears to be making things leaner, tighter, and a lot more straightforward. Hissrich teased the upcoming season (and its interactions) in an interview with GamesRadar+, saying: “What’s great about season two, I can tell you, is that, in what we’ve written, the story becomes much more focused. There’s a stronger drive in the story, because all of the relationships that we’ve been setting up in season one, actually start to come into fruition in season two.”

Hissrich added: “Characters start meeting and interacting more. That goes well sometimes. It doesn’t go well sometimes. But it’s kind of like, all of those building blocks that we set up for the world, finally start to come together into something a little more concrete.”

While the first season roughly covered the majority of The Last Wish collection of short stories by Andrzej Sapkowski, a recent report by Redanian Intelligence suggests that The Witcher season 2 story will at least draw from A Grain of Truth, another series of tales by the Polish author. However, those who already know the book cover-to-cover might want to hold fire on thinking they know the meat of The Witcher season 2 story. That’s because both Geralt and Ciri will apparently be travelling to Kaer Morhen, the ancestral home of the witchers, and meet a man-turned-beast named Nivellen on their travels. Let’s hope there’s a grain of truth to that one.

If you want to know more about the source material (which might just clue you in on The Witcher season 2 story), here’s our guide on The Witcher books, including the suggested reading order and how they compare to the Netflix series as well as the games.

During a recent Reddit AMA, Hissrich also said that “the story will be much more linear” and “a whole new set of fun characters” will enter the fray. Yes, you read that right – linear. Phew. Speaking of which…

The Witcher season 2 timeline

(Image credit: Netflix)

One of the biggest talking points to come out of The Witcher Netflix series was the use of a non-linear narrative. Over the course of a handful of decades, we saw the origins of Yennefer’s story, as well as how Geralt came to look after Ciri thanks to his presence at the Cintran royal court and his call for the Law of Surprise. The stories flitted back and forth between past and present throughout, often at multiple times in the same episode.

However, that understandably confused some viewers – the show didn’t always make it clear when we were watching certain scenes. The biggest culprit was Jaskier, who seemingly didn’t age despite crossing paths with Geralt over several years – and that’s despite Yennefer making reference to the baby-faced bard’s “crow’s feet.”

The Witcher season 2 should change that. Hissrich held her hands up during the aforementioned Reddit AMA: “We dropped the ball on aging up over the course of the show. It’s hard to show the passage of time when everyone looks the same, so we’ll be approaching that differently in .”

However, we can probably expect a more straightforward A-to-B story this time around. That’s not to say there definitely won’t be flashbacks or time jumps, but the language used by Hissrich in interviews so far sounds fairly definitive. There have already been references to a more linear approach to the story, as well as the story being “much more focused.” That sounds like a far less convoluted timeline to the one we eventually got used to in season 1.

The Witcher season 2 trailer

No Witcher season 2 trailer… yet. It’s very early days, after all. For reference, the very first trailer (described as a ‘teaser’ despite being two minutes long) for season 1 launched in July 2019, some five months before the show aired on Netflix. With filming set to get under way in a few months’ time, we can perhaps expect a late 2020 season 2 trailer at the earliest, though early 2021 is a far more realistic proposition.

Season Summary

Overview

Friendship isn’t a big thing. It’s a million little things. When our gang’s dear friend Jon – a man perfect on paper – took his own life, his family and friends were left to pick up the pieces. Each of these friends is not living the version of life they thought they’d be living. And their friend’s death forces them to take a look at the choices they’ve made and to solve the unanswerable mystery of a man they thought they knew.

Delilah, now the sole parent to Sophie and Danny, must help her children move forward from their father’s death, while hiding a huge secret of her own. Although she and Eddie are no longer having an affair, she is about to give birth to his baby, a living reminder of their transgressions. To protect their families, they have agreed to say the baby’s father is Jon, a situation made even more impossible when Eddie, trying to save his marriage, decides to tell his wife, Katherine, the truth.

As the friends prepare to welcome Delilah’s baby into the world, Rome and Regina find themselves at odds. When they got married, they agreed they didn’t want kids, but after getting a second chance at life, Rome finds himself wishing he had a baby. And while marriage is about compromise, Regina’s not sure this is one she can or should make.

As for Maggie and Gary, after finding out that Maggie is in remission, she and Gary move in together, ready to finally explore what being together is like when neither of them is on chemo. But adjusting to life post-cancer is easier said than done. As Maggie and Gary navigate their new relationship, an unexpected visit from Maggie’s mother leaves them questioning everything.

Meanwhile, having watched Jon’s last video and learned that Mitch might not be his real father, Barbara Morgan’s son, PJ, goes on a quest to find the truth. Having befriended Rome and with an appointment with Maggie on the books, PJ is about to turn his life and our gang’s life upside down.

We’ll see that family, like friendship, is a million little things.

‘A Million Little Things’ Showrunner Reveals the Cast Thinks the Show Should Run for This Many Seasons

A Million Little Things is in the middle of its second season on ABC, yet the show’s creator, D.J. Nash, is already dishing on the show’s ending. In a recent interview, Nash revealed that he already knows how the series is going to end and that he came up with the perfect conclusion after writing the pilot. While Nash has plotted out an ending, when does the cast of A Million Little Things think the series should call it quits?

Nash opens up about ‘A Million Little Things’ finale

In an interview earlier this month, Nash explained how he mapped out the entire series as soon as he had finished writing the pilot episode. The showrunner clarified that the ending could change if the story goes a different route, but he definitely has a clear plan for the future.

“When it comes to the series, I know what I want the finale to be, and there is even some things that we’ve planted that our actors don’t know that will set up that finale very, very well,” Nash shared.

According to Good Housekeeping, Nash went on to reveal that the cast of the show also has a good idea about when the series will wrap. Although nothing is written in stone, most of them feel like the story will come to a natural conclusion by the end of the fifth season.

A post shared by A Million Little Things (@millionlittlethingsabc) on Nov 3, 2019 at 9:00am PST

“I think all kind of feel like this is a five-season show,” he stated.

Nash then pointed out that ABC has yet to order a third season, so everything depends on whether or not they get picked up.

In the likely event that ABC continues the show for another run, Nash knows exactly what will happen in season 3. Some of the details have not been ironed out, but the major storylines have already been decided.

If the cast of A Million Little Things is right, then fans are looking at a series finale by 2023. A lot could happen, however, over the course of the next few years, so we’ll have to wait and see how things eventually pan out.

Inside the season 2 premiere of ‘A Million Little Things’

In the season 2 opener, fans watched as Katherine (Grace Park) dealt with the revelation that Eddie (David Giuntoli) is the father of Delilah’s (Stephanie Szostak) new baby.

After telling Eddie to be with Delilah for the birth of their child, Katherine packed her bags and had Eddie watch their son while she left town.

Katherine did not come home by the end of the premiere of A Million Little Things, and Nash explained the reasoning behind his decision to keep the character away from her family.

Nash revealed that he wanted to keep Katherine’s story as authentic as possible, especially after everything she and Eddie went through last season.

But even though Katherine dealt with her husband’s infidelity in the most mature way possible, hearing that he had a child with another woman completely broke her. Nash also admitted that he knew some fans would like to see Katherine and Eddie reconciled while others want her to move on.

As far as Park is concerned, she believes Nash and the A Million Little Things writers completely nailed it and having Katherine stay away made Eddie realize that he hurt her deeper than ever before. It also makes Eddie pay the price for everything that happened last season – even if it’s not a popular move with fans.

Jason Ritter dishes on his guest appearance

Moving into season 2, fans were thrilled to see Jason Ritter guest star as a stranger named Eric who has a mysterious tie to Patricia (Melora Hardin) and Maggie (Allison Miller).

In an interview, Ritter revealed that Eric is in a very complicated setup and is doing his best to navigate a tricky situation. The actor refused to give away any important details, but he did reveal he will appear in a handful of installments.

As fans are now well aware, Ritter’s Eric was given Maggie’s brother’s heart when he died. This was news to Maggie, that Patricia had kept secret even as she grew closer to Eric while Maggie was fighting breast cancer.

Maggie is also growing closer to Eric, which is complicating things in her current relationship with Gary (James Roday).

Keep up with all the drama on A Million Little Things when new episodes air Thursday nights on ABC.

  • A Million Little Things is slated to return for season 2 on September 26.
  • Jason Ritter, known for his roles on Parenthood and Joan of Arcadia, will reportedly join the cast.
  • Fan favorites Gary, Maggie, Rome, and others are set to return.

When A Million Little Things premiered in the fall of 2018, millions tuned in, and no one knew what to expect. While the premise for the new ABC drama was initially vague, the story became apparent less than five minutes into the first episode: A Million Little Things would be a show about life, love, and what happens to those “left behind” after suicide.

In the opening sequence, Jon Dixon (Ron Livingston) takes his life. And while the subject matter is undeniably heavy—addiction, mental illness, cancer, and infidelity are all discussed—the show is about more than pain and loss. Rather, it’s about promise, potential, and the power of friendship. After all, in darkness, there is hope. And in the wake of death, there can be life—at least as the show teaches us.

Season 2 is set to explore all of these concepts and more. While little is known about the upcoming episodes, the cast has been confirmed, and Delilah, Eddie, Gary, Rome, Regina, Katherine, Maggie, and PJ will all be returning.
