At the NBC Upfront Presentation in New York City this morning, the network gave fans their first look at This Is Us Season 2. Sort of.
While the cast and crew of everyone’s favorite freshman drama is yet to return to work on new episodes just yet, NBC did release a video of fans sharing stories about how the series affected their own lives over the past few months.
And then these viewers received a surprise of a lifetime: the This Is Us cast showed up!
This Is Us wrapped up its first season in March on an unexpected note, as the finale mostly focused on Milo Ventimiglia’s and Mandy Moore’s Rebecca’s failing marriage in flashbacks.
A majority fans were expecting to learn how Jack passed away; they felt short-changed by the episode, a reaction that “bummed” Mandy Moore out.
Said the actress to E! News earlier this spring:
“I’m really proud of the work we did and proud of the episode and anytime anybody asked me, I said, you’re not going to find out how Jack dies.
“I don’t know why people are so fixated on that!”
“You have to understand that what we’re telling, the stories we’re telling are still gonna hit home, and you’re going to discover more about this family that you fell in love with.”
Hey, we understand! And we’ll be there for Season 2.
Those who don’t understand this excitement should go watch This Is Us online in order to catch up.
