WARNING: THIS IS US SPOILERS AHEAD!
Jones plays William, a musician and recovering drug addict, on the ensemble drama. The cast also includes Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson, and Chris Sullivan.
On a recent episode of This Is Us, William passed away due to stage-four stomach cancer. Jones told The Wrap it was a very emotional episode:
It killed me too. I was shocked, moved, I was in tears, I was in joy, every emotion that you had and the fans had, I had.”
However, despite his character’s passing, Jones will return for season two of the NBC series:
It’s been determined [William will return], but with a big question mark again. We will see him again, but we don’t know when, how, or where, or in what capacity. But I do know he’s going to be there next season. Like most fans, I pick and choose what I think they might write. Maybe the Jesse relationship, because he was in Chciago, so I’m sure he’ll come back and Randall will have to fill him in on what happened in Memphis. Maybe we’ll get a chance to see how that relationship becomes [what it is]. Maybe through dreams Randall has. Maybe through the postcard that he left for Beth that we’ll see in the next episode. There are so many little pockets of places where you could put his story.”
What do you think? Do you watch This Is Us? Are you glad William will be back?
