This Is Us season 2 is set to dominate 2017 as it has been announced that the NBC series was renewed for two additional seasons. It was revealed during the Television Critics Association winter press tour last Wednesday.
Given its good reviews and ratings, the phenomenal series’ renewal is already expected. But NBC’s move to have two additional seasons consisting of 18 episodes each was quite bold. According to Variety, this Dan Fogelman series has earned the network’s top spot in terms of performance.
In addition, This Is Us ended the year with three Golden Globes nominations along with a Best Drama nod in a highly competitive category. As per the source, this has been a first in NBC network for over ten years.
This Is Us Season 2 and 3 Renewal
NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke shared that their wish has been granted for it to be a hit show. ET Online quoted Salke saying “This Is Us is as good as anything we have ever had. We are thrilled to renew it for two seasons and there is no doubt it will have a long life on NBC.”
“On behalf of everyone at NBC, we are grateful for the artistry of the cast, crew, and producers assembled by our gifted creator, Dan Fogelman,” the executive added. She also expressed her gratitude of having the highest rated drama, despite the arrival of new series every year.
Meanwhile, the series gathered 14.6 million viewership including DVR ratings. This makes the new series ranked as number one for 18-49 demographic.
Aside from that, it also averages 2.6 ratings from 9.56 million viewers in Nielsen’s Live plus Ratings. This is excluding the 5 million when seven days viewings are counted. The show’s ratings just say it all.
The series features stars Chrissy Metz, Chris Sullivan, Justin Hartley, Milo Ventimigli, Mandy Moore, Ron Cephas Jones, Sterling K. Brown and Susan Kelechi Watson. However, no confirmation has been made yet on the stars’ return to the additional seasons.
Furthermore, creator Fogelman shared that episode 13 titled Three Sentences on January 24 will be a huge one, so fans must watch out. Stay tuned for updates about This Is Us season 2 once details are available.
