Jump to Comments


In case you missed it, This Is Us has been picked up for not one, but two new seasons!

When the show’s stars hit the red carpet for People’s Choice Awards 2017 on Wednesday (Jan. 18), we had to know what they thought about the renewal.

Chrissy Metz, who plays Kate on the series, stopped by the People’s Choice and CBS red carpet spot ahead of the show and revealed she was SO excited about getting two more seasons.



“Guys! Not just the second, but the third as well,” Metz told Nuzhat Naoreen and Entertainment Tonight’s Denny Directo. “I didn’t know that networks did this. I did like this weird dance I’d never done before. It’s so exciting.”

We too are doing a serious happy dance now that we get more of this drama, which actually won a PCA for Favorite New TV Drama.

“It’s incredible,” she continued. “I think actors just want a job, but then when we get to have a job that tells a story, that impacts people’s lives it’s like a gift on top of a gift and we’re so grateful.”

Before heading into the show, Metz gave a little shout out to the people who love the show and we just love her even more now.

“The people just make it that much more wonderful,” she explained. “As cliché as that sounds.”

This Is Us airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on NBC.
