NBC’s ‘This is Us’ Renewed For Three More Seasons

NBC has renewed “This is Us” for three more seasons. The network will air 18 new episodes per season of popular family drama, one of TV’s top-rated shows. “This is Us” was this season’s most-watched entertainment program among adults age 18-49 — the key demographic in selling time to advertisers. The show totaled 13.8 million viewers.

New shows from NBC will have to wait until after the fall. The network announced a new drama, “Bluff City Law,” marking the return of former “L.A. Law” star Jimmy Smits in another legal series. Two new comedies will join the Thursday lineup: “Perfect Harmony” stars Bradley Whitford as a music teacher, and “Sunnyside” features Kal Penn, in a show about a disgraced New York City Councilman trying to help a diverse group hoping to become American citizens.

Several of NBC’s returning shows, including “Will & Grace” and the serialized drama “Manifest,” will be debut later in the new season.
