The sophomore season of NBC’s This Is Us is only a week away and fans are itching with what they can expect from the mega popular series. Now, we have another spoiler.
While this one isn’t surrounded by how the beloved patriarch Jack Pearson will pass awa, it’s definitely one that viewers will want to know.
Fans who tuned in to the series last season saw that the time jump was a major part of pulling on the heart strings and creating interesting story lines. Well, not only will we get more of that, but it’ll be in a brand new way.
Actress Regina King who put on her director’s hat for one of the episodes spilled the beans on the red carpet of the 2017 Emmy Awards Sunday, according to Glamour.
“One thing I can tell you without getting in trouble with NBC is that in my episode, you get to meet the Big Three [Kate, Randall, and Kevin] in a decade that you’ve never seen them before.”
Speculation says that it could be their 20s. We’ve already seen the Big 3 as kids, around ten-years-old, and as teenagers. And the majority of the story takes place in their 30s as the premiere episode centered around their 36th birthday. To see the stars in their 20s would definitely help to fill in the gaps.
Meanwhile, many are still talking about actor Sterling K. Brown’s acceptance speech when he won an Emmy Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series.
He bested Anthony Hopkins of Westworld, Matthew Rhys of The Americans, Liev Schreiber of Ray Donovan, Kevin Spacey for House of Cards, Bob Odenkirk of Better Call Saul, and even his fellow This Is Us co-star, Milo Ventimiglia, who plays his adopted father.
“Before anything like this happened for your boy, I was a fan. First, last and always a fan. So, my fellow nominees, I’m a fan of all of you. When I think about it, like Walter White held this joint?” he said referring to the statue. “Dick Whitman held this joint?”
He went on to thank his co-stars and called them, “The best white TV family that a brother has ever had.”
He gave a special message to Susan Kelechi Watson, who plays his wife on the show.
“It’s my pleasure to rep black love with you, sister. Let’s keep doing it like Martin and Gina.”
His speech was cut a little short but he also thanked the writers and the show’s creator, Dan Fogelman, backstage.
He also noted that he was “cut before I got to thank my wife!”
This Is Us returns to NBC Tuesday Sept. 26 at 9/8c.
