The Walking Dead‘s Chandler Riggs has found his next television gig on ABC’s hit dramedy A Million Little Things.
Earlier this week, Riggs teased that nearly a year after his departure from the hit AMC zombie series, he would finally be returning to television. Riggs tweeted out, “Four days ago I was almost unemployed for a full year. Right now I’m sitting on the set of season one of an incredible tv show for my first day of work. Life changes really drastically really quickly.”
TVLine was the first to report Riggs’ casting on A Million Little Things. They say that he will appear in at least two episodes. Riggs will play the role of a young Pj who TVLine describes as “a young man Rome (Romany Malco) meets. Like Rome, PJ has had some dark days, and their encounter proves meaningful to both of them in ways each of them doesn’t even fully realize at the time.”
A Million Little Things just garnered its highest rates yet with a timeslot move from Wednesdays to Thursdays, after Grey’s Anatomy. The series features a critically-acclaimed ensemble cast led David Giuntoli, Ron Livingston, Romany Malco, and James Roday. The series also stars Stephanie Szostak, Allison Miller, Christina Moses, Christina Ochoa, Grace Park, and Lizzy Greene.
DJ Nash is the creator and executive producer; Aaron Kaplan, Dana Honor, and James Griffiths are executive producers. A Million Little Things is produced by ABC Studios and Kapital Entertainment.
The official synopsis for the series reads:
[row]“They say friendship isn’t one big thing, it’s a million little things, and that’s true for a group of friends from Boston who bonded under unexpected circumstances. Some have achieved success, others are struggling in their careers and relationships, but all of them feel stuck in life. After one of them dies unexpectedly, it’s just the wake-up call the others need to finally start living. Along the way, they discover that friends may be the one thing to save them from themselves.”[/row]
A Million Little Things airs Thursdays at 9 PM EST on ABC.
