Looks like The Pearson family will be back for at least two more years!

NBC has renewed the hit sensation This Is Us for seasons 2 and 3. The network made he announcement Wednesday at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour for Dan Fogelman’s breakout drama. They will each be 18-episode seasons, fitting since the show revolves around a family of 36-year-olds.

We all got our wish that this is a hit show,” NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said. “This Is Us is as good as anything we’ve ever had, we’re thrilled to renew it for two seasons and there’s no doubt it will have a long life on NBC. On behalf of everyone at NBC, we’re grateful for the artistry of the cast, crew, and producers assembled by our gifted creator, Dan Fogelman. In a world where there are literally hundreds of television dramas, we’re proud to have one of the very best that is also one of the highest-rated.”

Starring Milo Ventimigila, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz and Justin Hartley, This Is Us ranks as the No. 2 drama on broadcast (trailing only Fox’s Empire) among the key adults 18-49 and total viewers. This far this season, it has averaged 14.6 million total viewers and a 4.6 among adults 18-49. The series has become the fall’s breakout freshman drama.
