This Is Us Season 2 Premiere Date And Cast Updates

This Is Us, the breakout NBC hit, returns this fall for more family drama. The series earned a rare renewal for two more 18 episode seasons back in January and received four Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series. 
Here's what we know about This Is Us season 2 so far...

This Is Us Season 2 Cast

So this one came out of left field. Action (and boxing!) movie legend Sylvester Stallone has joined the cast in a guest role. Stallone will play himself as a co-star of Kevin. 
This is Us is adding to its lineup of regulars. TVLine confirmed Jon Huertas and Alexandra Breckenridge have been promoted to series regulars. They played recurring roles in season one. 
Huertas played Miguel in both the current and past timeline. Breckenridge appeared halfway through season one as Kevin's ex-wife. 
The show stars Milo Ventimigila, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, and Justin Hartley, as well as some very talented child actors. 

This is Us Season 2 Premiere Date

This Is Us Season 2 will premiere on Tuesday, September 26th at 9 pm.
There will be plenty more memories to look back on since the network has already decided to go ahead and renew This is Us for season 3, too. 
"This Is Us is as good as anything we’ve ever had. We’re thrilled to renew it for two seasons and there’s no doubt it will have a long life on NBC," said the network's entertainment chief Jennifer Salke in a statement back in January when the news was announced (via THR) . "On behalf of everyone at NBC, we’re grateful for the artistry of the cast, crew, and producers assembled by our gifted creator, Dan Fogelman. In a world where there are literally hundreds of television dramas, we’re proud to have one of the very best that is also one of the highest-rated."
If you're unfamiliar, This Is Us is a heartwarming (and sometimes heartbreaking) drama following an unconventional family, which features interesting material about fame, family, adoption, and body image struggles while also offering a whole lot of fun and warmth.  
Creator Dan Fogelman has deployed different time periods in the series, allowing viewers to see mom and dad's early struggles as well as the kids' grown-up endeavours decades later. 
If you haven't given This Is Us a whirl yet, do check out the pilot episode. It could warm the coldest recesses of your heart.
