‘This Is Us’ Renewed by NBC for Three More Seasons

"This Is Us" is one of the most loved shows currently on television and recently NBC has announced that it would be renewed, with a little surprising element attached to it.

On Sunday, May 12, 2019, the network shared the news that they had ordered three more seasons of the series, a move that is rarely seen in the entertainment business.

It has been reported that NBC's last two-season order reveals how much confidence the network has on "This Is Us" and this three-season one has defied all expectations.


This was great news for fans of the show, who couldn't help but take to social media to share their thoughts on it, with some claiming that the news made them cry of happiness.

Producers know how much of the story they still have in their hands and where it is headed


The show's renewal will take it all the way up to season six, although it is uncertain whether it will be the last one. According to the producers, they have the show planned out for six seasons.

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Dan Fogelman, the creator of the show, shared that, by the end of season three, the character's stories are still only half-way through.

Isaac Aptaker, who runs the show alongside Fogelman, added:

"We aren’t just throwing things on TV to throw them on TV. Whenever we make a decision, we know we have a plan in place… [W]e have a plan here, like a complicated, long novel."

Aptaker explained that the producers know how much of the story they still have in their hands and where it is headed, and hope viewers will continue to be invested in the show so they can make it happen.


Although the renewal is great news for fans, it is also sad since they know, based on the producers' words, that the show will eventually come to an end, and that the family they learned to love will be gone.

Regarding the ending, Aptaker only wishes for it to make sense and for people to find it satisfying, something they can look back on as a "complete piece of work."
