Well if one thing is certain it’s that NBC definitely wants everyone to get excited about Season 2 of This Is Us so much that they released a 3-minute first look at the new season.
The first minute reminds fans of some of the best moments from Season 1 to show how the series has changed not only fans’ lives but so the lives of the stars. Sterling K. Brown (Randall) and Chrissy Metz (Kate) express how much they love going to work and how much they love the way this story is written. With Mandy Moore (Rebecca) talking about the acclaim and affection that the series has gotten makes them want to keep doing what there during and to keep delivering great performances.
Chris Sullivan even explains that the meaning behind the name of the show comes from when you watch this series you look at it and go “this is us. This is what happens in our family”. It’s a great and genius concept and a beautiful meaning.
From here the first look reveals that Season 2 will pick up the morning after Jack and Rebecca have decided to separate and we get a glimpse at how the kids react to it. We see that things are little awkward and confusing. It’s going to be a tough storyline to watch because we hate to see our favorite married couple separated. However, it’s also interesting to see how the writers will, hopefully, bring them the pair back together, even if we know how it ends.
We also once again learn that Randall and Beth are contemplating adoption with Beth being the one to hold. In addition, we also learn that Kate and Toby have moved in together and based on the fact that Kevin barges in unexpectedly, Kevin’s close relationship with Kate may cause problems for Toby. All the while, Kevin is a crossroads deciding whether to continue with the movie or stay with Sophie.
This season is going to bring about change and according to the cast, the writers have found a way to even surprise the cast. With good time ahead and bad ones that will leave characters at low points, the fans also have to remember that at the hear of this show is love, kindness and hope.
Sterling K. Brown put it nicely as he described “The Golden Age of Television” right now and how people are obsessed with a series that is real and true with people being able to relate to the story being told.
