Mandy Moore & Chrissy Metz Film On Set For ‘This Is Us’ Season Two [PHOTOS]
Both actresses were nominated for the Best Supporting Actress in a TV series award at the 2016 Golden Globe awards for their roles in the show.
The show has been given a slew of nominations at this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards including Outstanding Drama Series. This Is Us is the only series from one of the big four networks nominated for the category – every other show belongs to either Netflix, HBO, AMC, or Hulu.
In the show, Moore plays Rebecca Pearson, the matriarch of the Pearson family on which the show focuses. Metz plays one of Rebecca’s children.
The second season of This Is Us is expected to premiere on Sept. 26 on NBC for the beginning of the 18-episode season.
For the second season, the show has been moved into the Thursday night 9 p.m. time slot, the most coveted spot on the network. NBC will also air a new episode of This Is Us after the 2018 Super Bowl, one of the most lucrative times that a show can air.
