'This is Us' Season 4: With a loving family behind her, Deja may start dating and even find love, teases actor Lyric Ross
Since the very beginning, what has made us fall in love with the Pearsons is their ability to love — not just one another, but all the people around them — and make them family.
Be it with Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) adopting Randall (Sterling K Brown), or Randall and Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) adopting Deja (Lyric Ross), NBC's 'This is Us' has proved that even if you aren't always born into a family, you can still find one.
Deja, however, had a difficult time accepting the Pearsons as her family and even resisted it for a while. She felt like she was being disloyal to her birth mother by accepting the love of a different family.
She even resorted to harming herself and her new family initially. Deja also feared that she would not be able to relate to Randall or Beth and that they would tire of her eventually.
However, Randall and Beth both did everything in their power to be there for Deja and showed her through their actions that they will always be by her side.
In the season three finale, Deja felt at home and had come to terms with the fact that Randall, Beth, Tess (Eris Baker), and Annie (Faithe Herman) are her family. She loves them wholeheartedly, and with her home life secure, she looked to enriching her life with other forms of love.
In an interview with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) at the 2019 Emmys red carpet, Ross revealed that Deja will definitely find another form of love when the show returns.
She said, "She is going to find a different kind of love. She has already been introduced to the family who has just brought her in and loved her like she was theirs, so she is going to find a different kind of love this season."
We are definitely excited to see Deja's growth as a young adult and as a teenager. The next step for Deja surely would be to start dating.
We assume that with how chaotic and uncertain her life has been till date, she did not really have time to be a teenager. That is definitely one of the things we are excited to see when 'This is Us' season four premieres on NBC on Tuesday, September 24.
