This Is Us - Season 3
My biggest concern with "Our Little Island Girl" though is that the show will think this is enough for Beth. She's been relegated to the background so many times before this, and if this episode proves anything, it's that there's still so much to explore about Beth and the Clark family.
This Is Us - Season 3
While this might be the last time we see Abe and Carol, we know Zoe isn't going anywhere and thank goodness because she's a gem. It was especially nice to see her in a family setting instead of a romantic setting with Kevin.
The Pearsons are back in production. Season three of This Is Us officially started filming on Tuesday, July 10. And you know this social media-loving family of actors and crew marked the occasion for their legions of viewers.
Series creator Dan Fogelman posted the below, an image of the first scene of season three. In it, Sterling K. Brown, Susan Kelechi Watson and the arm of somebody (is that you Justin Hartley?) are in their family kitchen. The orange juice is flowing! What, did you think the first scene would be set in the future? Think again.
"Tomorrow we officially start shooting season three of @nbcthisisus! Y'all, it feels like the night before the first day of school! It's difficult to put into a post what this show and the special humans who make it possible mean to me," she wrote. "I am flooded with emotion and gratitude for each one of you who are as excited as we are to share these new chapters together!"
This Is Us season three will explore more about the Pearson family. Season two ended with several flashforwards showing Hartley's Kevin on his way to Vietnam, Metz's Kate dealing with her new husband Toby's (Chris Sullivan) depression and Randall (Brown) several years in the future, struggling with going to visit somebody.
"I think we might be looking at our most ambitious, potentially our best season yet, which is rare to say when you're entering your 37th episode of a show, but I feel recharged," Fogelman previously told E! News. "I think we have really spectacular stuff coming and real showcases for these actors."
"We have some stuff coming for Beth right away early in season three where you really learn about her and where she comes from and what her background is that I think is going to be really exciting for the audience," Fogelman teased.
"In bits and pieces that we're going to sparse out that information over the first half of the season," Fogelman said. "And kind of give those answers, but also ask new questions as we always try and do."
But when Jack goes to return the jacket Rebecca left in his car, he sees another man holding a bouquet and kissing her on her front steps. (For the record, Rebecca looks rather horrified before this happens.)
The cast of This Is Us is ever-expanding, and you never know who is going to become an important part of the Pearson's lives. In season two, Deja was introduced as a young girl that Randall and Beth were fostering, but now she's a permanent member of their family. Season three is just getting started, but it's already delivering the same level of major guest stars. So far the This Is Us season three guest star lineup includes Jack's brother, a political rival for Randall, and the one and only Mario Lopez.
As the Pearson family continues to explore Jack's past and move forward with their personal journeys now and in the future timeline, there's no telling how many more characters they'll meet along the way. This Is Us weaves a tapestry of one family's life that spans decades, and it's one that relies heavily on how unexpected encounters can change the course of someone's story. Some of the guest stars on this list appeared only once, while others have become fan favorites, but the one thing that they all have in common is that they've touched the Pearsons' lives in a special way.
As fans brace themselves and stock up on tissues before the new season of This Is Us, NBC announced today that they will air The Paley Center Salutes This Is Us ahead of the season three premiere of the Emmy award-winning family drama on Sept. 18 at 10 PM ET/PT.
This Is Us is looking to add more Emmys to its name during the Sept. 17 ceremony. The drama recently nabbed eight nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series. Earlier this year the show won a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.
There are several moments throughout the season where it looks like they may split up, but they keep coming back together to work things out. In the end, Randall decides to resign but Beth instead sells their home to relocate their family to Philadelphia. There, Randall can finish out his term and Beth can open her own dance studio.
Randall and Beth officially adopt Deja, but she mentions that she still wants to see her birth mother at some point. Beth promises to make that happen, but it still hasn't. Randall and Beth's daughter Tess comes out as gay in this season, and her parents are accepting but concerned about being there for Tess during this time while also being so busy with work.
Meanwhile, Kate signs up for community college to complete the degree she never got. She graduates, and then she goes into early labor, making her fear for the baby's safety. The baby is very small at birth, and has to breathe via a ventilator. Kate names him Jack. Toby has a hard time bonding with him at first, because of all the wires and tubes, but Kate bonds with him almost immediately. Miguel and Rebecca think about moving to California to help Kate with baby Jack, but Rebecca is also pretty overbearing with regards to Jack's medical treatment, so that close proximity to her mother may be an issue for Kate. Towards the end of the season, baby Jack is strong enough to be taken home.
Kevin begins dating Beth's cousin Zoe, and the two of them journey to Vietnam together to learn more about Jack's time in the war. Their relationship moves steadily forward, with Kevin telling Zoe he loves her and asking her to move in. She agrees, but it takes her a while to unpack her things, so you can tell she's not falling as quickly as Kevin did. Part of that seems to stem from Zoe's childhood where she was molested by her father. She tells Kevin this story but also pledges not to let it hurt her chance at a real relationship with Kevin.
The mysterious "her" who Randall, Tess, and Toby went to meet in one of the early season flash forwards turns out to be Rebecca. She is very sick and seems to have lost her memory. The whole family gathers together to see her. In that future storyline, Randall and Beth are still married, Kevin has a son, Nicky is at Rebecca's bedside, Toby and Kate don't go to the house together, and Miguel is nowhere to be seen. And thus begins the endless stream of questions that fans now have and hope to be answered in Season 4.
Well, add another connection to the boys and black and gold to that list: The This Is Us season 3 finale revealed that Jack and Rebecca met on the night of the Immaculate Reception, the greatest play in Steelers history, Pittsburgh sports history (yes, more than the Bill Mazeroski home run) and is in the running at least for greatest play in sports history.
This Is Us, NBC's hit drama that is either a scientifically crafted series to make people cry human tears or a secretly great program with a lot of heart, has officially been renewed for second and third seasons.
Per Vulture, the renewal came during the show's panel at the Television Critics Association. The two seasons will consist of 36 episodes total, broken up into 18-episode installments, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Season one, still currently airing, will also air for 18 episodes.
"We all got our wish that this is a hit show," NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said, according to the Hollywood Reporter. "This Is Us is as good as anything we've ever had. We're thrilled to renew it for two seasons and there's no doubt it will have a long life on NBC."
The success of This Is Us on NBC has been buoyed by positive reviews from critics and high ratings, and features a star-studded, ensemble cast that includes Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz and Milo Ventimiglia. As Mic's Kevin O'Keeffe wrote in a mid-season review for the series, its cast is complimented by a smart script and powerful stories connecting all the characters together (how they're connected, exactly, is a big, spoiler-ific twist for the pilot we won't disclose here). 041b061a72
