Just like the proverbial tortoise who ultimately won the race, NBC’s drama This Is Us has proved to be a big winner. It has garnered revenue and critical acclaim, becoming a real winner for the network. 

This Is Us has been renewed for a second and third season with the season 2 premiere airing on Tuesday, September 26, 2017. It will likely be another emotional tear-jerker, so get your tissues ready!

NBC drama This Is Us made a slow and low-profile start in September 2016 compared to other shows last year. However, its creator, Dan Fogelman, knew the series would take some time to pick up speed, and that’s exactly what happened!

This Is Us became a must-watch series for viewers, so much so that NBC renewed it for two additional seasons. Both will have 18 episodes each and take us further into the journey of the Pearson family.

The show has also been praised by critics for its plot, storyline, acting, and production value. Some cast members have even been nominated for awards including the Golden Globe and Emmys.
