If you just couldn’t get enough of Jack and Rebecca’s love story—and are dying to know how hubby Jack is set to pass—then look no further. The season 2 This Is Us trailer is here, and we’re already in tears.
Yes, the new trailer teases heartwarming snippets and foreshadows some major plot twists, but it’s more than just that. In fact, it gives us just another reason to swoon. In the teaser, actor Sterling K. Brown (who plays Randall on the show) reflects on how the family drama rose to popularity. Meanwhile, fans’ testimonies are displayed on a screen in the background—and what each of them reveals is simply more than we can handle.
“When I watch This Is Us, I watch it every single week,” one woman said. “It is literally the highlight of my week. I know I’m going to cry. I know I’m going to learn something more about myself and my family.”
Another fan also shared how the show hits close to home: Coming from a single-parent family of five, he discovered the identity of his biological father while watching the show. He claims that for him, Randall’s own search for his biological father was a highlight of the entire first season.
And it seems that the list of inspirational messages is endless. One fan praised Chrissy Metz for portraying a three-dimensional character who is a beacon of body positivity; others appreciated Milo Ventimiglia’s character (Jack) for helping a young Randall through his anxiety attacks. Fans were even able to relate to the moments when the characters lost their parents.
While all these testimonies simply melted our hearts, the best part of the teaser comes when the cast of This Is Us surprises fans on the set of their NBC interviews. And it’s not hard to guess that in the midst of what ensued, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. How sweet!
