Will ‘This is Us’ reign supreme as the most nominated cast at the Emmys this year?
Name a show on TV right now that has a more Emmy-nominated cast than NBC’s “This Is Us.” I’ll wait.

Over the last three seasons, the family drama has garnered a staggering 18 Emmy nominations for its actors, including three wins, for Sterling K. Brown (Best Drama Actor) and Gerald McRaney (Best Drama Guest Actor) in 2017 and Ron Cephas Jones (Best Drama Guest Actor) in 2018.

Last year an impressive seven out of nine nominations for the show were for its sprawling cast. Leading men Brown and Milo Ventimiglia each netted their third consecutive nominations for Best Drama Actor. Emmy debutantes Mandy Moore and Chris Sullivan received mentions for Best Drama Actress and Best Drama Supporting Actor, respectively.

‘This Is Us’ Creator Talks Finale’s Flash-Forwards, Season 5 (and 6) Plans for The Pearsons

‘This Is Us’ Creator Talks Finale’s Flash-Forwards, Season 5 (and 6) Plans for The Pearsons
(Warning: This post contains major spoilers for Tuesday’s Season 4 finale of “This Is Us.”)

This Is Us” brought its fourth season to a close tonight in typical “This Is Us” fashion, meaning we got a couple flash-forwards, multiple revelations, several new character introductions and one big fight, which all added up to leave us with more questions than we’ve ever had about where things are headed for the Pearson family.

Luckily, series creator Dan Fogelman had at least a few of the answers when he spoke with reporters about the hour, titled “Strangers: Part Two,” on Tuesday. But the one question he definitely couldn’t answer in any way was TheWrap’s query about whether or not we’ve already met either Kevin (Justin Hartley) or Nicky’s (Griffin Dunne) wives, after tonight’s episode revealed they are both married men when visiting bedridden Rebecca (Mandy Moore) in the future.

‘This Is Us’ Review: Season 4 Finale Wraps Up Its ‘Strangers’ Experiment with Varied Results

‘This Is Us’ Review: Season 4 Finale Wraps Up Its ‘Strangers’ Experiment with Varied Results
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for the “This Is Us” Season 4 finale, Episode 18, “Strangers: Part Two.”]

When Season 4 started, “This Is Us” made a promise. By dedicating its first hour to three new characters — Marine-returned-home Cassidy Sharp (Jennifer Morrison), teen father Malik Hodges (Asante Blackk), and a mysterious blind musician named Jack (Blake Stadnik) — Dan Fogelman’s NBC drama committed to making those characters matter by the end of the year.

Most of their arcs were evident before credits rolled on Episode 1. Cassidy was in the veterans group Uncle Nicky (Griffin Dunne) attacked, which, of course, led her to Kevin (Justin Hartley); Malik fell for Deja (Lyric Ross), which obviously tied him to Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson); and Jack turned out to be Jack Damon,

The Pearson family is full of surprises on This Is Us, and they still manage to shock us in real life, too. Not only are they insanely talented actors, but after seeing their dance moves, we're wondering if there's anything they can't do?! Sterling K. Brown shared a video on TikTok of the beloved cast doing the viral Smeeze Challenge, and while we're shook over Jon Huertas's tempo and Mandy Moore's ability to break it down in her old Rebecca makeup, we have to ask: couldn't someone count Justin Hartley in?! One person on Twitter said it best, "He's too handsome to be this rhythmically challenged."

Our queens Susan Kelechi Watson and Chrissy Metz crushed it, and Chris Sullivan was perfectly on beat. Between the very heavy storylines about aging,

Randall Pearson went through one of the most horrifying experiences of his life on tonight’s episode of “This Is Us,” the first part of the NBC drama’s three-episode trilogy, “A Hell of a Week.” This hour focused on Randall’s (Sterling K. Brown) hell, which came in the form of a knife-wielding home intruder he encountered the moment he returned from his trip to California to be with his mother, Rebecca (Mandy Moore), as she underwent testing for her recent memory problems.

And this home intrusion that occurred while Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) and the girls were upstairs asleep was Randall’s worst nightmare, which led to some actual nightmares throughout the episode, and tied back to previous bouts of anxiety Randall has experienced ever since he was a child.
