'This Is Us' Renewed For Two Seasons
NBC announced today that its fall breakout This Is Us has received an early order for two additional seasons. The double renewal, which sees it through to at least Season 3, comes on the heels of last week's strong performance that saw the critically-acclaimed drama reach series-high ratings.
This Is Us came at the perfect time for the peacock network, which was searching for its next bona fide hit. Premiering last September, it didn't take long for the show to make its mark. Its first episode was not only the highest-rated premiere of the 2016-2017 season, but actually now ranks as NBC's most-viewed series premiere ever when factoring in its various delivery platforms.
Showing confidence that This Is Us can be a flagship series for years to come, NBC opted to double up on the show's first renewal. A minimum of 18 episodes have been ordered for each for the upcoming seasons, which matches the current season's total.
