The adventures of Nicholas and his friends will continue this spring. Freeform has announced that season two of the Everything’s Gonna Be Okay TV show will kick off with a pair of episodes on Thursday, April 8th.
A comedy series, Everything’s Gonna Be Okay stars Josh Thomas, Kayla Cromer, Maeve Press, and Adam Faison. The series follows the ups and downs of Nicholas (Thomas), a neurotic twenty-something. In the first season, he’s home visiting his father and his teenage half-sisters — angry Genevieve (Press), who’s trying to find her place in the world, and Matilda (Cromer), a bright and outgoing high school senior who’s on the autism spectrum. Nicholas’ trip is extended due to his father’s untimely death and the siblings are left to cope with not only a devastating loss, but also the realization that misfit Nicholas will have to rise to the challenge, move in, and hold the family together. While all of this is going on, the new head of the household meets Alex (Faison) and they make a romantic connection.
Airing on Thursday nights, the first season of Everything’s Gonna Be Okay averaged a 0.06 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 175,000 viewers. Despite the low traditional ratings, the series was still renewed for a second year.
Here’s the second season date announcement and poster from Freeform:
