Freeform Picks Up Josh Thomas Comedy ‘Everything’s Gonna Be Okay’ To Series

Everything’s Gonna Be Okay, Freeform’s pilot from Australian writer-actor-comedian Josh Thomas, has been picked up to series by the network with a 10-episode order.

The half-hour comedy stars Thomas as Nicholas, a neurotic 25-year-old still living at home with his single dad and two teenage half-sisters, one of which has autism. He is not particularly helpful in raising his siblings, but when their dad becomes terminally ill, the girls have to cope with not only a devastating loss but also the realization that Nicholas is the one who will have to hold it all together. Co-starring alongside Thomas are Kayla Cromer, Maeve Press, and Adam Faison.

Has anyone else read the Josh Thomas story in the New Yorker about his autism diagnosis. There is something I really enjoy about the "hmmmm, I sure am interested in making stories about characters with XYZ....hey, wait a second....." narrative.

I skimmed it, but what I read was cool, and yeaaah Nicholas does read as autistic... or narcissistic.

Although I wonder by the phrasing of the tweet Josh Thomas sent out if he was the one who decided to end the show?

I mean even if he was the one who decided to end the show I am still disappointed - I really hope to see more Kayla Cromer and Maeve Press on my TV soon

I'm so sad to see this, not only because the show was so good, and I wanted to see more from these characters, but also because it means one less show with disability representation on television. It was such a breath of fresh air to see autistic characters played by autistic actors.

I'm hoping this is more "Josh Thomas didn't want to act anymore/couldn't think of ideas for a season 3" instead of a "Freeform decided to sacrifice a show to the show gods" because this show was great, it was only 20 episodes, but the second season was so good - I think it was better than season 1 (Although season 1 finale had an amazing portrayal of what sensory overload can feel like).
