WOW! There appeared some questionability on whether “This Is Us” would be renewed a few days ago, since NBC had shockingly not announced anything. It now appears there was nothing to worry about, as the network has renewed it for THREE more seasons! Yes — THREE!
The last time a show was renewed for so many seasons at one time was in 2014 when CBS renewed “The Big Bang Theory” for 3 more. Asked whether the show would then end after season 6, NBC co-chairman Paul Telegdy said, “We’re keeping it open for now.”
This season, the show has averaged 13.8 million viewers and is on track to finish as the #1 broadcast drama among Adults 18-49 for a third consecutive year.
