Jennifer Salke, President of NBC Entertainment released a statement in January saying, “We all got our wish that this is a hit show. This Is Us is as good as anything we’ve ever had, we’re thrilled to renew it for two seasons and there’s no doubt it will have a long life on NBC. On behalf of everyone at NBC, we’re grateful for the artistry of the cast, crew, and producers assembled by our gifted creator, Dan Fogelman. In a world where there are literally hundreds of television dramas, we’re proud to have one of the very best that is also one of the highest-rated.”

This is Us premiered on September 20, 2016. The first half of the season averaged 14.6 million viewers per episode. Since filming had not finished when the show was renewed, storylines were expanded and introduced, leaving fans with more questions leading into This Is Us season 2.

Right before the season finale of This is Us aired, the show’s creator gave an interview to Entertainment Weekly saying, “It lives in a space we haven’t quite lived in before, and it’s a dangerous episode in that it makes me uncomfortable in the way you want to be uncomfortable if you’re doing my job. I’m excited for people to see it.” Fogelman further added, “Without giving much away, it changes everything — and maybe in ways people might be talking about, maybe in other ways.”
