NBC's upcoming series This Is Us won't be debuting until later this fall, but the dramedy that stars The Young and the Restless' Justin Hartley (Adam Newman) along with Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Milo Ventimiglia, and Chrissy Metz, already has the entire entertainment industry buzzing.
ET Online not only awarded the series with the honor of "Best Ensemble Cast of the Season" but also hails This Is Us as a can't-miss TV gem. "If we could hug a show and never let it go, we'd choose NBC's soul-warming dramedy, This Is Us," the editorial staff writes in an article that names the top six shows to watch this fall. "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."
That endorsement should be enough to win you over, but if not, maybe Hartley himself can convince you to tune in. The Y&R favorite took to Twitter after a recent screening of This Is Us with the message, "Happy to report, not a dry eye in the theater."
Watch for the world premiere of NBC's This Is Us on Tuesday, September 20, following The Voice.
