Fans shouldn’t have to spend time wondering whether NBC’s This Is Us TV show will be cancelled or renewed. The Peacock Network picked up a second season and a third season as well, back in January of 2017. And they did so with good reason. This Is Us even outperformed the ratings juggernaut which is The Voice in its 2016-17 demo ratings. Will the network’s faith be rewarded or could this early third season renewal end up cancelled? Stay tuned.
A comedic family drama, centering on the Pearsons, This Is Us stars Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Chris Sullivan, Susan Kelechi Watson, Jon Huertas, Alexandra Breckenridge, Hannah Zeile, Niles Fitch, Logan Shroyer, Mackenzie Hancsicsak, Parker Bates, Faithe Herman, and Eris Baker. The NBC TV series follows a group of people who were born on the same day and explores their connection, the meaning of family, and the nature of love.
This Is Us, season two, kicks off with the “Big 3’s” 37th birthdays. Meanwhile, Randall (Brown) and Beth (Watson) mull over a big life change; Kate (Metz) ponders a new passion; and Kevin (Hartley) tries to strike a balance between the professional and personal. In the past, Jack (Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Moore) have to handle the consequences of their big fight.
