It’s so strange, isn’t it? How just like that a complete stranger can become such a big part of your story? …It’s actually kind of terrifying, you know? How a single cross with one person you’ve never met can change everything.”
This Is Us is back and just like that, the Big 3 and company are back for another season of heartfelt moments, jaw dropping revelations and the long awaited expansion of this Pearson family web. This trailer provides us with the biggest additions to This is Us since Sylvester Stallone became Kevin’s co-star in season 2 and Phylicia Rashad was revealed to be Kate’s mom last season. Is that the young Emmy-nominated up-and-comer from When They See Us, Asante Black?! Is that my guy Q from Juice aka Omar Epps taking his talents to prime time?!
What is with that keyboard in Kevin’s hands? Is that how he finds a way out of his addiction? Does he give up acting to become a musician?
Are Asante Black and Omar Epp’s characters related in some way or the same person in two different timelines?
Who’s this mystery Jennifer Morrison soldier? The person Jack actually had an affair with? Perhaps she turns out to be Rebecca’s mother?
Lastly, why is M. Night Shyamalan coming aboard? Surely we could have found someone with less of a profile, with much better acting skills. We’ll see what his character brings to the table, I suppose.
Will Mandy Moore ever let us down? Nay, I say!
“If you think you know what’s coming next, you don’t know us.”
Find out some of the answers to these questions and more when This Is Us returns for an extended premiere event on Tuesday, September 24th at 9:00pm.
