It’s not a shock, but a relief! NBC announced the renewal of “This Is Us” for two additional seasons. As the #1 rated new series and Tuesday night drama sensations, NBC has ordered two minimum 18-episode seasons which means more birthdays for The Pearson Family with NBC.
Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment said, “We all got our wish that this is a hit show,” she added, “‘This Is Us’ is as good as anything we’ve ever had, we’re thrilled to renew it for two seasons and there’s no doubt it will have a long life on NBC. On behalf of everyone at NBC, we’re grateful for the artistry of the cast, crew, and producers assembled by our gifted creator, Dan Fogelman. In a world where there are literally hundreds of television dramas, we’re proud to have one of the very best that is also one of the highest-rated.”
“‘This Is Us’ is a refreshingly honest and provocative series that follows a unique ensemble whose paths cross and their life stories intertwine in curious ways. We find several of them share the same birthday, and so much more than anyone would expect. ‘This Is Us’ is a smart, modern series that will challenge your everyday presumptions about the people you think you know,” says the NBC press release.
The cast of “This Is Us” stars Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Justin Hartley, Chrissy Metz, Sterling K. Brown, Susan Kelechi Watson, Chris Sullivan and Ron Cephas Jones.
New episodes of “This Is Us” air on Tuesdays at 9 pm ET on NBC.
