This Is Us fans can expect to see more of the Pearson kids in Season 2.
All of the child actors (minus one) have been promoted from recurring characters to series regulars.
According to Deadline, Hannah Zeile (teenage Kate), Niles Fitch (teenage Randall), Logan Shroyer (teenage Kevin), Mackenzie Hancsicsak (young Kate), Parker Bates (young Kevin), Faithe Herman (Annie Pearson) and Eris Baker (Tess Pearson) all got the upgrade.
The only kid missing from the list is Lonnie Chavis (young Randall). But fear not, it’s for good reason. He will not be a contractual series regular, as he already has that title on Showtime’s White Famous.
The promotion of the Big Three makes us think that there will be even more flashbacks in Season 2. This isn’t surprising, especially considering the show announced that Jack’s death will be revealed in the season.
We are excited about this upgrade, as the children really add dimension to the Pearson sibling characters.
The network has kept most details about Season 2 under wraps. The one thing we know for sure is we’ll probably still cry after every episode.
This Is Us returns to NBC on September 26 at 9 pm.
