More renewals in the US ahead of annual Upfronts announcements….
This is Us has been renewed for a whopping 3 seasons (can’t recall a show ever enjoying this before), although there are suggestions this will conclude the series for writer Dan Fogelman.
“In a television landscape with nearly 500 original scripted series, there are very few, if any, that have the critical and cultural impact of This Is Us and we couldn’t be more proud to bring fans three more seasons of a show that so well represents the NBC brand,” said NBC Entertainment scripted presidents Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta. “A huge thank you and congratulations to our executive producers, cast and crew who reach new heights every week with the show’s inventive and compelling storytelling.”
