It was an exciting day yesterday for This Is Us fans as the show was renewed for not one, but two seasons. It’s a move that is almost unprecedented on Network TV these days and truly shows just how special this show is and the confidence that NBC has in its potential.
Creator Dan Fogelman released a video yesterday showing the exact moment the cast found out about the pickup. It’s basically the same reaction we all probably had once the news was released.
This Is Them excited beyond all belief. Congrats to the This Is Us family!

Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia also released a video showing their excitement and gratitude. It’s just as adorable as you would imagine.

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
