NBC’s celebrating the birthdays of Jack and the Big 3 – Randall, Kate, and Kevin – with the first official trailer for This Is Us season four. The trailer begins with Rebecca and Jack engaged in a heart-to-heart in the car. “It’s so strange, isn’t it? How just like that a complete stranger can become such a big part of your story,” says Rebecca (played by Mandy Moore).
As new characters making their debuts in season four appear, Rebecca adds, “It’s actually kind of terrifying, you know, how a single cross with one person you’ve never met can change everything.
Once Upon a Time‘s Jennifer Morrison is featured during the one-minute trailer, and it appears she’ll be playing someone who knew Jack during his military service. Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan makes a quick appearance in the trailer and odds are he’s part of Kevin’s present-day storyline.
Other new season four actors include Asante Blackk, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Omar Epps, Bahara Golestani, Timothy Omundson, Julian Silva, Auden Thornton, and Nick Wechsler.
Returning guest stars include Tim Jo, Caitlin Thompson, Griffin Dunne, Elizabeth Perkins, Phylicia Rashad, and Ron Cephas Jones.
The cast of the award-winning tear-jerking non-linear drama is led by Milo Ventimiglia and Mandy Moore as Jack and Rebecca Pearson. Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, and Justin Hartley star as Randall, Kate, and Kevin. Susan Kelechi Watson is Beth Pearson, Chris Sullivan is Toby Damon, Eris Baker is Tess Pearson, and Faithe Herman plays Annie Pearson.
This Is Us season four will premiere on September 24, 2019 at 9pm ET/PT. The trailer revealed episode one will run long so make sure you adjust your DVRs.
“Everyone has a family. And every family has a story. This Is Us chronicles the Pearson family across the decades: from Jack and Rebecca as young parents in the 1980s to their 37-year-old kids Kevin, Kate and Randall searching for love and fulfillment in the present day. This grounded, life-affirming dramedy reveals how the tiniest events in our lives impact who we become, and how the connections we share with each other can transcend time, distance and even death. From the writer and directors of Crazy, Stupid, Love. comes a smart, modern show that will welcome you into a family you feel you’ve known for years.”
