Shocking Renewal News For NBC Hit Series This Is Us

Shocking Renewal News For NBC Hit Series This Is Us”

No shocker here: The Pearsons will be staying put at NBC for a while.

NBC has renewed "This is Us" for three more seasons, as part of a play-it-safe fall lineup that will add just three new series to the network's primetime roster. "Dan [Fogelman] is a maestro and has a plan with this show, "Paul Telegdy, Co-Chairman at NBC Entertainment, told reporters on a press call Sunday morning, when asked whether these next three seasons are it". Why exactly did NBC decide on such a large renewal so soon, especially when ratings for Season 3 haven't been the best they've traditionally been?

The show's creator Dan Fogelman tweeted: "Three years ago, we were live-tweeting the premiere of our TV show, hoping someone, anyone might watch".

Variety broke the news that NBC has renewed This is Us for its fourth, fifth, and sixth seasons, in an unconventional move for the broadcast network.

The cast includes Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Justin Hartley, Chrissy Metz, Sterling K. Brown, Susan Kelechi Watson, Chris Sullivan, Michael Angarano, and Ron Cephas Jones.

This is not the first time the hit drama series has received a multi-season commitment at the network.

With the three-season pickup under its belt, now comes the tall task of answering the questions laid out in the season three finale. The greenlighting of season 4, 5, and 6 are not totally unexpected either, as series co-showrunner Isaac Aptaker has previously said they plan to wrap the show after three more seasons. This Is Us is a smart, modern series that will challenge your everyday presumptions about the people you think you know.

"We're keeping it open for now", he said.

This Is Us airs Tuesday nights on NBC.
