There’s no denying that Kate Pearson (Metz) did a lot of growing in the first season of This Is Us, and it sounds as though that pattern is set to continue when the hit drama series returns in the fall.
“I was really excited because I feel like Kate is doing things that she’s wanted to do for so long, desperately,” said Metz of getting back to work on This Is Us.
The last we saw of Kate, she was gearing up to seriously pursue her dreams of becoming a singer, and it sounds like we’ll definitely get to see what transpires as Kate follows her passion.
As much as we’re looking forward to seeing Kate break out in the music biz, Metz also warned fans that it won’t be an easy road.
“Monkey wrenches get thrown all over your life sometimes,” teased the actress. “While I’m excited, there’s also a lot of growth to happen.”
We’re not sure what Metz means by that exactly, but given the emotional turmoil that transpired in the first season of This Is Us, we won’t be surprised if this next season gives our tear ducts just as much of a work out!
This Is Us returns with all new episodes beginning Tuesday, September 26 at 9 p.m. on NBC.
