With the This Is Us season 4 premiere coming onto NBC in just over two weeks, there’s an opportunity coming up to see some powerful stuff. Throughout the promotional campaign, the series has promised surprises — even if you think you know what to expect on the series coming up, think again. The producers are doing whatever they can to still surprise you as they connect the dots from point A to B all the way down to X, Y, and Z.

For the sake of the latest promo below, This Is Us really isn’t so much about hyping up big reveals or jaw-droppers. Instead, it’s about explaining why this show is as popular as it is in the first place. It’s really a story about emotional undercurrents, deep feelings, and relatability. The title has a universality to it — sure, the “Us” can be about the extended Pearson family, but it’s also about the viewers. This is all of us. This is a story that almost everyone can connect to in some shape or form — there’s love here, pain, family, and a whole lot more. There’s a lot of stuff wedged into a single hour-long episode. (Technically, the premiere is going to run a little over an hour.)
Within the first episode, be prepared to see more of how Randall and Beth are faring following their move to Philadelphia. Meanwhile, Toby and Kate are new parents, Kevin is embarking on a new chapter, and you’ll also have an opportunity to learn more about how Jack met Rebecca’s parents in the past. These are all foundations to things that are coming up later, and we know that there’s a fascinating group of guest stars coming on board — think in terms of everyone from Jennifer Morrison of Once Upon a Time to acclaimed director M. Night Shyamalan.
