From “Please Like Me” creator, writer and star JOSH THOMAS comes half-hour comedy “Everything’s Gonna Be Okay”, produced by Avalon Television and Freeform.
Everything’s Gonna Be Ok introduces Nicholas (JOSH THOMAS), a neurotic twenty-something visiting his single dad and two teenage half-sisters, one of whom is on the autism spectrum. He hasn’t been particularly present in his siblings’ lives, but when their dad reveals that he is terminally ill, the girls have to cope with not only a devastating loss but also the realisation that Nicholas is the one who will have to rise to the occasion, move in, and hold it all together.
In an era of divisiveness and a seemingly never-ending negative news cycle, the series provides a breath of fresh air – a reason to laugh and connect with funny, well-intentioned characters trying to find happiness in the middle of difficult times.
Comedy legends, Richard Kind (The Big Knife, Inside Out) and Maria Bamford (Lady Dynamite, Big Mouth) join the cast as guest stars in season 2.
The release of season two has coincided with Autism Awareness Month. On April 5th, Josh Thomas disclosed his own autism diagnosis in an inspiring profile piece published by The New Yorker. Additionally, Kayla Cromer appeared on The Today Show with Hoda & Jenna to talk about growing up with Autism and her journey to become a successful actress.
Rating 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, The Hollywood Reporter named the show one of the Best TV of 2021. USA Today ranked the show in its best new TV shows of 2020, calling the series ‘gorgeously written’ and ‘miles ahead of its Freeform siblings in maturity and class’.
“Freeform’s excellent, warm-hearted new dramedy”
“It’s as good a symbol as any for the spirit of this show: delightful, happy-sad, figuring it out one improvised step at a time”
The New York Times
“Watching “Everything’s Gonna Be Okay” is like slipping into a warm bath, being wrapped in a loving hug or listening to a reassuring talk.”
“Idiosyncratic and colorful, treating adult and adolescent love, sex, pain and grief with remarkably funny candor.”
Los Angeles Times
“…a bighearted, bittersweet, sometimes perverse chronicle of three unique siblings teaching each other how to live.”
“A winsome, witty new series from an Australian comedy wunderkind.”
