Season 3 of A Million Little Things is premiering on Thursday, November 19 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC. As fans know, the season 2 finale ended on a scary note with Eddie getting struck by a car. A season 3 promo clip shows Katherine (Grace Park) calling Gary (James Roday Rodriguez) to let him know about the accident.
The synopsis for the first episode of A Million Little Things Season 3 reads: “In the aftermath of Eddie’s car accident, Katherine [Grace Park] leans on their beloved group of friends for support. Meanwhile, Rome [Romany Malco] and Regina [Christina Moses] face a tough decision about the future of their family, and Delilah sees how her kids are thriving and wants the same for herself. Maggie [Allison Miller] jump starts her new life in Oxford, while Gary [James Roday Rodriguez] continues to navigate his new relationship with Darcy [Floriana Lima].”
Speaking in an interview with TVInsider, showrunner DJ Nash says of Eddie’s status coming into Season 3: “Katherine and Theo’s life will never be the same,” before hinting that the character is dead.”
However, that does not mean that Giuntoli is leaving the show. As the showrunner added: “Jon [Ron Livingston] died in the cold open up the pilot and Ron is still an active part of our series. We couldn’t imagine saying goodbye to David Giuntoli. Whether or not Eddie is actively part of their friends’ lives going forward is what our premiere’s all about.
