During an interview with Deadline, DJ Nash shared the plans for expanding the season with more episodes than any previous one.

"We’re doing 20 episodes this year,” he told the outlet. “It’s the biggest season we’ve ever had.”

Previous seasons were close to hitting the 20-episode mark with season one having 17 episodes, season two producing 19 episodes, and season three only came out with 18 episodes due to COVID-19. Now that ABC has given the green light for a longer season, the executive producer is taking it as a sign of the show's success.

“With us getting a 20-episode order, it doesn’t feel like that ABC wants this to be our last season,” he said.

When is season four of A Million Little Things coming out?

As of now there is no official release date for the upcoming season, but thanks to a curious fan on Twitter, DJ Nash has given us a potential date.

"The plan is for September," he tweeted after a fan asked him when we can expect the newest season.

Other series regulars expected to return also include James Roday Rodriguez, Stéphanie Szostak, Tristan Byon, Lizzy Greene, and Floriana Lima. 

It's still unclear if Terry Chen will be reprising his role, but just because it hasn't been confirmed yet doesn't mean he won't be making an appearance.
