This Is Us is closing in on an official Season 2 renewal from NBC, and series creator Dan Fogelman is confident that the remaining episodes will seal the deal, per Deadline:
I’m really excited about where we’re going. People have liked the show, and by whatever metrics we measure these things it seems to be succeeding. That creates confidence, which allows for bold choices. We have a bunch of episodes coming that focus on particular characters and storylines, which I love for this show. As I mentioned we play more with time – changing time periods, seeing Jack and Rebecca in various time periods (even before they met), and completing a lot of our season 1 storylines that we’ve established. Hopefully it all won’t go to sh*t. I don’t think it will.
Speaking to THR, star Cephas Jones shared his excitement for the show’s future:
This show is really about the human condition as opposed to cops and robbers and gunfights and things blowing up. I’m very excited about the future of the show and where the characters are going.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the renewal status of This Is Us Season 2…
