The rave reviews continue from TV critics across the board for the new NBC dramedy This is Us premiering this fall. The Young and the Restless Justin Hartley (Adam Newman) stars in the new primetime series along with Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Milo Ventimiglia, and Chrissy Metz.
ET Online just heralded the program of one of six new series to watch for in their fall preview, and they also dubbed the performances as the “best ensemble cast of the season.” They go on to share why fans should tune-in to the show: “If we could hug a show and never let it go, we’d choose NBC’s soul-warming dramedy, This Is Us. From the writer and directors of Crazy, Stupid, Love, this refreshingly raw and genuine new series will ease the ache in our hearts that Parenthood has left behind. With four out of the five characters sharing the same birthday, you’ll discover that their lives intertwine in curious ways — and you’ll fall head over heels in love once you discover the series’ big twist. Bottom line: This is the show that everyone will be talking about, so don’t miss out on fall’s most emotionally satisfying series”
Pretty good endorsement, wouldn’t you say? But to top it off, Hartley posted on Tuesday a photo of himself following a screening of This is Us where he expressed: “Happy to report, not a dry eye in the theater.” The series premieres immediately following The Voice on September 20th.
