Almost Home

1993 | 13 Episodes

The second season of The Torkelsons was produced only after a complete retooling of the cast and story, opening with the family relocating to Seattle after Millicent accepts a job as a nanny, their family home in Oklahoma having been foreclosed. Billing itself under the title 'Almost Home', the show moves forward as though two children from the first season, Steven Floyd and Ruth Ann, never existed. Millicent now refers to Chuckie Lee as her only son and Chuckie Lee refers to himself as the "middle child." Millicent and the remaining three children move in with Brian Morgan and his two kids, Gregory and Molly.
