Good news for This Is Us fans! The show has been renewed by NBC for three more seasons. This marks the second multiple-season renewal for the show. NBC has shown This Is Us its highest signs of faith over the years. The network picked up the show for a full season after only one episode had aired. Halfway through season 1, it issued a two-season renewal.
Asked specifically if these were the final seasons of This Is Us, NBC Entertainment co-president Paul Telegdy said. “Dan is a maestro and has a plan for this show.”
Creator, Dan Fogelman, already has an ending in mind. He has been collecting footage for the finale before the child actors look too old for the age they are playing. He told reporters in April that he sees the show at around the midpoint, and he may have made that idea prominent when he tweeted the words “Halftime” right after the season 3 finale aired.
“In speaking purely about the characters’ stories, I think we’re in the middle of their stories. If you were in a movie theater, you’d be at the one-hour mark”. Earlier this month, Fogelman signed a five-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox Television, which produces the show.
According to NBC, This is Us was this season’s most-watched entertainment program among adults age 18-49, including seven days of delayed viewing. Which are the key demographic in selling time to advertisers. On that basis, the show totaled 13.8 million viewers.
