'This is Us' season 3 spoilers: Brace yourself because surprises are dropping tomorrow!
Thankfully for fans, 'This is Us' stars Milo Ventimiglia and Mandy Moore are here with some early sneak-peek, dishing what's next in store for the beloved couple.
They are television's beloved family not for no reason. With a wrenching, two-seasons-long emotional saga, the Pearson clan has for sure found a permanent place in the hearts of their hundreds of thousands of fans. But it's about time that fans of this NBC dramedy brace themselves up for some more heartbreak as season 3 is just around the corner.
Before this Golden Globe-nominated series returns with its much-anticipated season 3, though, the official Twitter handle of the show has hinted on some upcoming spoilers - and if our past experiences are any proof, this is going to be one explosive teaser.
Sharing a super funny GIF of Chrissy Metz-played Kate Pearson, the post simply teased: "*whispers* Pssst... Surprises are coming tomorrow. #ThisIsUs." Is the clue about Kate and Kevin (the other Pearson family member who makes a blink-and-miss appearance in the GIF)? What's happening with the "Big Three" in season 3? And what devastating narrative will the show deliver in terms of the Jack and Rebecca character arc?
These are a million questions bothering fans of 'This is Us' at the moment. Thankfully for them, series lead Milo Ventimiglia and Mandy Moore are here with some early sneak-peek, dishing what's next in store for the beloved couple, and their ever-expanding family, both in the past and current timeline.
“It’s fun to jump back in time," said Ventimiglia, the actor who moves fans to tears as the near-perfect Jack Pearson, during a recent interview with Parade. "The ’80s are a happier time in the marriage and the kids are younger, while the ’90s are stressful because of what Jack and Rebecca are going through. It’s fun. It’s different from playing current-day scenes. There’s a bit of magic to it.”
Moving into the third season, though, things are going to get even more intense for the 'This Is Us' family. More so because the upcoming season focusses in a big way on the Vietnam war, Jack's involvement in it, and a particular someone whom the Pearson patriarch holds close to his heart - something that has remained more or less shrouded in mystery so far.
“It’s going to be a big story point. We find out more about his brother, Nicky, which will be very interesting too," teased Ventimiglia.
It goes without saying that 'This Is Us' is all about stepping up the drama and emotions with each passing theme. In the last season, for instance, the emphasis on flashbacks was pretty huge, especially in terms of telling the story of the three siblings, who have each grown up with their own qualities and limitations. Hopefully, the trend will continue in season 3 as well. As Moore says it's all heartfelt, but never "schmaltzy."

“And there’s something really unifying about the common theme about this struggle of being human—the joys and the pain and everything in between," she added.
'This Is Us' premieres season 3 on September 25 on NBC.
