If you love “This Is Us” You Will Love This News

“This Is Us” has been one of the biggest hits for NBC over the last two years. One feature that makes the show so fun to watch week to week is the way producers continue to unfold the backstory of so many characters.

If you love the show, you obviously love the characters of Beth and Randall, played by Susan Kelechi Watson and Sterling K. Brown.

We’ve learned a lot about Randall’s story since the very first episode. In some ways it defines the premise for the show.

But about his wife, Beth?

Stay tuned.

It’s just been revealed that NBC is bringing on Phylicia Rashad to play Beth’s mother.

Yes! That Phylicia Rashad, as in the much-beloved actress who played Clair Huxtable on the Cosby Show.

EW.com reports Rashad will make her debut in the second half of the third season. Her character will be Carol.

So it sounds like you’ll have to wait a bit to see that debut. Meanwhile, if you’re going through This Is Us withdrawl, you can exhale a bit. The show returns from its winter break next week on January 15th.

Here is the trailer NBC shared at the start of Season 3.

No sign of Rashad. So no clues as to what kind of mother she will play. Something tells me, if this character is anything else like the others and the storylines that get millions to tune in each week, tears will be involved.
