ABC announced today that A Million Little Things has been picked up for a fifth season. The good news comes ahead of next week's Season 4 finale, which airs on May 18.

The hour-long series has proven to be a reliable performer for the network. While its critical reception has been mixed, viewership numbers have been generally solid. The current season has hit series-low ratings, however, and it was deemed to be on the bubble for renewal. Season 5 will see the show's episode count nearly reach the 100-episode mark, but it will likely need a sixth season to achieve that milestone.

A Million Little Things 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.

Look for Season 5 to premiere this fall as part of the 2022-2023 broadcast season.
