Since its premiere last September, This Is Us has been captivating viewers and winning over critics with its winning blend of solid stories and emotionally charged performances. Earlier this week, NBC rewarded the show with something that’s unheard-of for a rookie series: a two-season pickup. Yes, we’ll be seeing the Pearson family on our TV screens through at least 2019, and two of the show’s stars — Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia — were thrilled by the news. They told us the renewal gives the producers, writers, and actors not only a sense of security, but also plenty of confidence to continue telling the show’s heartfelt stories.
This Is Us airs Tuesday nights at 9/8c on NBC.
