The Emotional End of ‘A Million Little Things
Coli referred to how the show began with Jon Dixon’s (Ron Livingston’s) suicide in the pilot and its effect on his close friends by saying, “It feels like a bookend.” “Gary [whose illness resurfaced in Season 4 but only Maggie knew about it until Rome unintentionally discovered his secret in the season finale] is going to receive support from the friend group.
Through all of the difficulties, they have supported one another and come through. Nash, the series creator, and former showrunner before turning the reins on to Coli said he had the idea for the finale even before the show had even started. “I want to know how a pilot will conclude when I shoot it. We were clear about our direction from the start.
For a very long time, the EPs and the writers kept this information to themselves, he claimed. Throughout Season 5, Nash hinted that viewers might see a “cast they haven’t seen in a while,” including Livingston, who will likely make a flashback appearance.
Nash said to Deadline in a Q&A following the Season 4 finale that he was attempting to reunite with Delilah’s original cast member Stéphanie Szostak for a few episodes. The fifth and final season’s promo, which debuted on Wednesday and is embedded below, looks back at the first four seasons before delivering a preview of the show’s final episodes.
The audience will “see this extraordinary adventure come to a close via tears and laughter. The last season’s description states, “Along the road, we’ll explore the depths of friendship, love, and sadness as we wish this wonderful family of friends goodbye, once again proving that friendship really is a million tiny things.

The Legacy Of A Million Little Things
The popularity of This Is Us contributed to the release of A Million Little Things. The emotive, extensive family drama genre was not created by the NBC program, but it was revived by it. It demonstrated that a small-scale drama might be just as popular with viewers as a sci-fi epic like Lost or a mystery like Desperate Housewives with the right cast, thoughtful writing, and direction. The core Pearsons turned out to be the focus of This Is Us in the end.
Many networks attempted to duplicate the popularity of This Is Us. Even today, the brand-new Apple TV+ drama Dear Edward embodies that look. Although A Million Little Things wasn’t a rating powerhouse, it did enjoy a decent run at a time when the majority of broadcast series are having trouble getting viewers’ attention. Those who have stuck with the show through season 5 (Premiere Recap) should find the conclusion moving.
Before A Million Little Things can officially be included in the list of television shows that finish in 2023, it still has a season’s worth of goodbyes to complete. However, based on his remarks, it appears like Nash has created both a satisfying ending and a glimmer of what a reboot might include. A Million Little Things might still be back given that shows have the option of switching to a different network or streaming service.

I am so in awe of the amazing actors, writers, directors, and crew who contribute their skills to make our show that I feel both honored and humbled by it all. I am also quite appreciative of ABC for making mental health awareness one of its main causes. Terrence and I are eagerly anticipating the Millionaires’ viewing of our final season.
