All Hail the Big 3! This Is Us Renewed for Two More Seasons
This Is Us airs Tuesdays (9 p.m. ET) on NBC
In the announcement, which made on Wednesday at Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour in Pasadena, NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke also revealed that seasons 2 and 3 will contain 18 episodes each, guaranteeing at least 36 more installments.
The flashback-happy family dramedy — whose stars include Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore and Sterling K. Brown — premiered to impressive numbers and critical praise back in September. This Is Us stands as the top-rated new series in the key 18-to-49-year-old demo, and the fall finale on Dec. 6 drew a 4.9 in the demo and 16.4 million viewers including DVR playback. It is also NBC’s most-watched scripted show in the Tuesday-at-9 p.m. time slot in seven-plus years.
