Just a few hours ago, NBC officially announced that now already cult family drama series This Is Us had been renewed for three more incredible seasons. No specific release date for Season 4 has been announced as of yet. Yet no doubt, it's clear for you that the upcoming fourth season premiere is slated for this fall. The announcement was made by Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Presidents of Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment.
Liza and Tracey have also noted that among hundreds of scripted series, few may boast with such a cultural impact as This Is Us brought. That's why NBC announced the unprecedented three-year pickup. To be honest, nothing is surprising in such a decision since This Is Us is one of the top performers on TV. Even despite the fact that the current, 3rd season premiere has lost over eighteen percent (-18.51%) of the viewing audience, it has garnered more viewers even compared to the pilot episode of the show.
This Is Us Season 3 has drawn 10.542 million viewers with a 2.97/12 key demographic rating/share among adults (P18-49). For comparison, the show's pilot has garnered just a bit over ten million viewers (10.07). This Is Us averaged a 3.79 rating in adults 18-49 and 13.8 million viewers overall, according to Nielsens Media Research. As a result, This Is Us is currently the #1 entertainment series on any broadcast network among adults (18-49), as well as the #2 drama in total viewers, according to NBC. By the way, talking about the television ratings, it's worth noting that This Is Us S2E14 has drawn 26.97 million viewers, an incredible number for any scripted series.
In addition, This Is Us Season 3 has received the universal acclaim. Both critics and viewers were fully satisfied while watching the third installment of the show. On Rotten Tomatoes, This Is Us Season 3 holds a score of 7.17/10 and a 94% approval rating from critics, while the viewers have rated the 3rd round at 4/5, and have written 78% positive reviews. At Metacritic, the statistics look a bit low, yet above average, 6.1/10. An overall score of This Is Us on IMDb is very high, 8.7/10 ~ 76,000 votes.
This Is Us Season 4 Release Date
As mentioned above, NBC has picked up This Is Us for three additional seasons. However, This Is Us Season 4 release date is yet to be announced. Sterling K. Brown has already hinted that the show is coming back for another round in September 2019 on his official Twitter page.
