And non-This is Us fans can’t use the “it’s-too-far-along” excuse anymore.

People reports that NBC will air a special program titled The Paley Center Salutes This Is Us on September 18, which is just one short week before its Season 3 premiere.

According to People, the one-hour special will not only show highlights from the first two seasons of This is Us but will also give fans a behind-the-scenes look at how the show is made and a sneak peek at Season 3.

The special will include the entire Pearson family: Jack, Rebecca, Kevin, Randall, and Beth, Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Justin Harley, Sterling K. Brown, and Susan Kelechi Watson respectively; as well as the newlyweds Kate and Toby, played by Chrissy Metz and Chris Sullivan.

The Paley Center for Media is dedicated to leading discussion about the “cultural, creative, and social significance of television, radio, and emerging platforms for the professional community and media-interested public,” according to their website.

Therefore, the organization is big on preserving culturally significant pieces of art, and they feel that This is Us qualifies.\
