If you’ve been stressed out about trying to remember everything that happened on season two of This Is Us, besides the great Crock-Pot saga of ’98, have no fear: NBC’s got your back. On Tuesday, the network announced that it will air a one-hour special on Sept. 18, one week before the season three premiere to get everyone all prepped for more flashbacks, dramatic guitar music, and of course, the tears.
Per Deadline, the special, appropriately titled “The Paley Center Salutes This Is Us,” will include interviews with the cast and creators, new clips from season three, a behind-the-scenes look at how each episode is made, and highlights from the first two seasons. It will be a big week for the This Is Us family, as the Emmys are the night before the special. The show is up for eight awards, including Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia. (Just let it be a tie and have father and son give a speech on stage!)
Before you watch another season two rerun with plenty of water (because of all the crying), be sure to check out NBC’s newly-released “First Look” sneak peek at season three, which includes Susan Kelichi Watson saying Beth is definitely, maybe going to get really mad about Kevin and Zoe’s romance. There’s also Sterling K. Brown offering more light on the mystery “her” that future Randall and future Tess talk about seeing in the finale. “At some point in time in the season, I can tell you that the ‘her’ that is addressed in the future will be illuminating.”
This Is Us season three premieres Sept. 25.
