Big News for Well-Loved This Is Us Series Season 2
We’re not even going to deny that we’ve become huge fans of NBC’s This Is Us during its first season. So when they announced some big news for the show’s second season, we were all ears.
NBC’s This Is Us Series
The American TV series created by Dan Fogelman premiered in September 2016. The NBC show stars an ensemble cast of celebrities, specifically Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson, Chris Sullivan, and Ron Cephas Jones.
The show delves into human relationships, about the family lives and connections of several people who all share the same birthday and the ways in which they are similar and different. According to the Wikipedia entry, the series plot follows siblings Kate, Kevin and Randall as their lives intertwine.
“Kate and Kevin were originally part of a triplet pregnancy, conceived in the bathroom of Froggy’s, a bar, during Super Bowl XIV. Their due date was October 12, 1980, but they were born six weeks early on August 31. Their biological brother was stillborn. Their parents, Jack and Rebecca, intent on bringing home three babies, decide to adopt another newborn: Randall, a black child born the same day and brought to the same hospital after his biological father abandoned him at a fire station.”
The TV drama has received positive reviews since its premiere, receiving nominations at the 74th Golden Globe Awards and the 7th Critics’ Choice Awards. It has also won the American Film Institute’s Top Television Program and the MTV Movie & TV Awards for Best Tearjerker Moment in 2017.
