NBC confirmed This Is Us favoured status as it handed the fan favourite drama a three season renewal.
That goes one better than the decision to renews This Is Us for two seasons on the back of a strong opening season one. This means the show already has confirmed fourth, fifth and sixth seasons.
Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, presidents of scripted programming for NBC Entertainment released the following statement on the multi-season reason.
“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. A huge thank you and congratulations to our executive producers, cast and crew who reach new heights every week with the show’s inventive and compelling storytelling.”
This Is Us focuses on the Pearson family though multiple generations and time periods. It stars Sterling K. Brown, Justin Hartley, Jon Huertas, Chrissy Metz, Mandy Moore, Chris Sullivan, Milo Ventimiglia and Susan Kelechi Watson.The series is executive produced by Dan Fogelman, Isaac Aptaker, Elizabeth Berger, John Requa, Glenn Ficarra, Ken Olin, Charlie Gogolak and Jess Rosenthal, and it is produced by 20th Century Fox Television.
