“This Is Us” creator Dan Fogelman and the cast got the news of their two-season renewal a mere five minutes before hopping onstage at NBC’s Television Critics Association winter press tour presentation. As such, they were an excited bunch, though not so overeager as to spoil much about the rest of the first season.

– Katie Couric will be appearing in an episode as herself, and “Atlanta” star Brian Tyree Henry will play someone from William’s (Ron Cephas Jones) past — sadly, not as his “Atlanta” character Paper Boi — who we’ll see in both the present and past timelines.
– In light of the double renewal, how many seasons does Fogelman think “This Is Us” can go? “We have a while to go,” Fogelman said. “There’s a before and after to this family. Slowly but surely you learn.” That means that Fogelman has several more seasons in mind »

This Is Us has proven to be a smash success for NBC, with ratings that rival some of the most popular shows in years. Now that the data is in on the show’s return after the winter break, NBC has announced that it will renew the show for two more seasons.
That’s obviously a rare move among the broadcast networks, but it’s one that makes sense given today’s market. Cable networks have recently jumped on the multi-season renewal bandwagon, and the psychological effects of the move can’t be denied. One of the most frustrating things about television is the risk of investing something that won’t be around long, and even this season has given some examples that prove people don’t want to stick around if a show may get axed, or if it already has.
Of course, we all know that it’s »

The Hollywood Reporter posed that question to Fogelman following his time on stage at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour and the prolific showrunner (whose Fox drama Pitch remains on the bubble).
"Not yet," he said when asked if he'd been approached about doing a spinoff of the time-jumping family drama. "We're still so early. I »
