This Is Us is one of NBC’s biggest hits right now, and the network just showed the world how much faith they’re putting into this show as it was renewed for not one, not two – but additional three seasons!
Multi-season pickups of this scope are extremely rare, but NBC is obviously putting their full trust in This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman. He already has the vision for the following three seasons, and we’re yet to see what will happen with this family drama after that.
Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, presidents of scripted programming for NBC Entertainment, congratulated the team behind this series for reaching new heights with their inventive and compelling storytelling.
“In a television landscape with nearly 500 original scripted series, there are very few, if any, that have the critical and cultural impact of This Is Us, and we couldn’t be more proud to bring fans three more seasons of a show that so well represents the NBC brand,” read their official statement.
This Is Us premiered on NBC in 2016, and scored nods for most prestigious awards in the TV industry – including several Golden Globes, Emmy awards, and SAG Awards. The snsemble cast includes Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown and Chrissy Metz.
