Freeform’s ground-breaking series Everything’s Gonna Be Okay concludes its initial ten-episode run this week. The series, created, starring and written by Australian actor Josh Thomas, covered much uncharted territory for the network, as Nicholas (Thomas, pictured top left), following the death of his father, was left to raise his two half-sisters, Genevieve (Maeve Press, top right) and Matilda (Kayla Cromer, middle), while trying to navigate commitment issues in a new relationship with his boyfriend Alex (Adam Faison). Like Thomas’ quirky cult classic Please Like Me (now streaming on Hulu), the series has dealt head-on with some highly sensitive issues as filtered through his unique comic perspective. Nothing has been off limits, including grief and loss, the struggle of becoming a new parent to teenagers, and the burgeoning sexual awakening of a teenaged girl with autism, unsure if she’s ready to enter college life.
