On Tuesday night, NBC premiered their insanely-ambitious new show “This Is Us,” and we feel like the majority of the feedback to date has been positive about it. This is a show that has given us some great characters right off the bet, some interesting drama, and above all an interesting time-jumping twist that few people saw coming going into the premiere. Were there some clues throughout? Sure, but it was hard to see many of them going into it.
As for where we are going next, we do have some further information now courtesy of the synopsis below:
“Kate (Chrissy Metz) is furiously working hard to shed her unwanted pounds as she continues to struggle with impatience and discouragement. She receives support from her new boyfriend, Toby (Chris Sullivan), as he helps her let loose and enjoy herself. Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) begins to question the motives of Randall’s (Sterling K. Brown) biological father, William (Ron Cephas Jones), and takes action in getting answers on his activities. Randall has a lot more on his mind with the new life-changing addition of having his biological father in his life. Marriage and raising three 8-year-old children is beginning to take its toll on Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) as they start to feel distant from one another. Kevin (Justin Hartley) faces the aftermath of quitting his job as he deals with his agent, Lanie (Katey Sagal), and has to figure out how to move forward.”
If you want to get some other reminders of just how ambitious this cast is, just look at this cast: Brown (coming right off an Emmy win), Sagal, Hartley, Moore, and there’s even an appearance from “Castle” alum Jon Huertas coming up in here as well.
