“We all got our wish that this is a hit show,” said NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke. “This Is Us is as good as anything we’ve ever had. We’re thrilled to renew it for two seasons and there’s no doubt it will have a long life on NBC. On behalf of everyone at NBC, we’re grateful for the artistry of the cast, crew, and producers assembled by our gifted creator, Dan Fogelman.
“In a world where there are literally hundreds of television dramas, we’re proud to have one of the very best that is also one of the highest-rated. And a special thanks to our partners at 20th Century Fox Television who supplied us with this incredible show.”
Starring Milo Ventimigila, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz and Justin Hartley, the show has averaged 14.6 million total US viewers and ranks as the No. 2 drama on network TV behind Empire.
It premieres on TEN on Wednesday February 8th.
