NBC’s popular drama series, This Is Us, featuring Emmy-winner Sterling K. Brown, is expected to be renewed for a fourth season of flashbacks, flash-forwards and timeless tearjerkers.

In the 2018-2019 season, This Is Us was the highest-rated broadcast-network TV series among viewers aged 18-49, and NBC’s second-most-watched series overall after Chicago Med

The just-concluded season took the Pearson clan on several roller-coaster rides: Randall (Brown) won a city-council seat, but appeared on the verge of losing wife Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson); Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Toby (Chris Sullivan) welcomed a child, Jack, named after Kate’s family’s forever father figure, but watched the baby fight for his life in the neonatal intensive-care unit, Kevin (Justin Hartley) found his presumed-dead uncle Nick (Michael Angarano), but lost his girlfriend, Zoe (Melanie Liburd), and his sobriety; and, in the past, we saw big-daddy Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) sever his relationship with Nick in Vietnam, but score the love of his life in Pittsburgh, Rebecca (Mandy Moore).


This Is Us, created by Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love), has been telling its interlocking, nonlinear stories since 2017. True to form, the show’s third season revolved around the mystery of who the somber Pearsons of the future were visiting in hospice. (Not-so spoiler alert: They’re visiting Rebecca!)
