As popular as THIS IS US has been with critics, the series has also proven popular with viewers. Enough so that NBC has already renewed the drama for a second season — and also a third! “THIS IS US is as good as anything we’ve ever had,” NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke announced at The Television Critics Association’s Winter Press Tour. “We’re thrilled to renew it for two seasons and there’s no doubt it will have a long life on NBC.”
“Not that I am surprised,” tweeted Hartley’s fiancée, Chrishell Stause (ex-Bethany, Y&R; ex-Jordan, DAYS OF OUR LIVES; Amanda, ALL MY CHILDREN), “but this is fantastic!”
All the best to Hartley and the rest of the cast and crew of THIS IS US for continued success!
