The family drama scores a three-season pickup.
May 12, 2019
NBC announced today This Is Us has been given a huge three-season renewal that will take it to Season 6. The popular drama was last renewed in 2017 for two seasons after an impressive freshman debut.
This Is Us came at the perfect time for the peacock network, as it was searching for its next bona fide hit. Premiering in 2016, it didn't take long for the show to make its mark. Its first episode was not only the highest-rated premiere of that season, but it was also NBC's most-viewed series premiere ever when factoring in its various delivery platforms.
Since then the show has continued continued to be a reliable performer, consistently ranking as one of broadcast television's top rated scripted series. Today's renewal will likely take it through to its eventual conclusion, as its creators have previously spoken about a six-season plan for the show.
But it's hard to believe seeing so much happen to one family.
