In addition, the channel also announced the renewal of ‘Big Sky‘ (Season 3), ‘A Million Little Things‘ (Season 5), ‘Home Economics‘ (Season 3) and ‘The Wonder Years‘ (Season 2).

The iconic family – made up of Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and DJ – grapple with the issues of parenthood, dating, unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and work.
The list includes John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Alicia Goranson, Michael Fishman, Emma Kenney, Ames McNamara, Jayden Rey and Maya Lynne Robinson.
