Get ready, This Is Us fans, because it’s almost time to revisit the Pearsons.
Fans have been counting down the days until the return of the NBC drama, which in its first season, became known for putting viewers through the emotional wringer on a weekly basis. Now, the series’ return is upon us. This Is Us season 2 will premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 26 at 9/8c on NBC, and we suggest you stock up on extra tissue boxes immediately.
With so many things happening this season, there is no reason to let up on the excitement now.
In honor of This Is Us’ return, we’ve rounded up what we know about the second season to get you prepared to reenter the lives of The Big Three and their parents, Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore).
So what can you expect this fall from the hit drama? For starters, the series is taking on a new decade. We’ve previously seen the Pearson family in the ‘80s, ‘90s, and present day, and now we will get to see The Big Three — aka Kevin (Justin Hartley), Kate (Chrissy Metz), and Randall (Sterling K. Brown) — in a different time…and it might just be the future!
Back to the present though, Dan Fogelman (aka the mastermind behind the series) shared a photo that shows Kevin getting down on one knee this season. He could be proposing for real to his ex-wife Sophie (Alexandra Breckenridge), or it could be for a movie of some sort. Either way, Kevin with a ring is something worth tuning in for.
In other big news, This Is Us has upgraded a few familiar faces, including Breckenridge and Jon Huertas (who plays Miguel) to series regulars, which means we will hopefully be getting more details about their characters come season 2.
Plus, Sylvester Stallone will be joining the cast as a guest star, and having Rocky on This Is Us is almost too much to handle. To see what Stallone brings to the table, and to find out what else is in store for Pearson family, don’t forget to tune into the season 2 premiere next week!
This Is Us officially returns on September 26, 2017 on NBC.
