This is Us season 3: What to expect


This is Us creator Dan Fogelman dishes on what fans can expect for Season 3.

There’s no doubt that This is Us is a smash hit for NBC. Part of that success is the superb acting from its cast – led by Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, and Kevin Hartley.

But the other key factor in its success is the storyline and the shroud of mystery surrounding the patriarch of the family’s death. During the pilot, we find out that the young couple awaiting the birth of their triplets are the parents of the three adults who were celebrating their 36th birthdays. And soon after, we find out Jack died.
