ABC has reportedly added four additional episodes to the first season of A Million Little Things, bringing its total up to 17. Considered to be a full-season top-up, the order size is close to the three additional episodes fellow rookie Manifest got from NBC last week.

The hour-long series follows a group of Boston friends who have known each other for 10 years since unexpected circumstances brought them together. Since then, they have all ended up feeling stuck in their lives for better or worse. After one of them unexpectedly passes away, it acts as a wake-up call for the others in the group to finally start living their lives to the fullest.

Through its first five episodes, A Million Little Things has garnered decent ratings in the 10:00pm time slot on Wednesday nights. It has been pulling in a steady 0.8 overnight rating among adults 18-49 in the weeks following its premiere, which garnered a 1.1.
