This Is Us season four is still months away, but that didn’t stop Chrissy Metz from giving us the scoop on what’s to come. Metz, who was promoting the release of Breakthrough on DVD, Blu-ray and digital, said the show will continue to jump around in time (duh).
“I think we’re going to see…what the teenagers have gone through and how the shapes the Big Three into adulthood,” Metz teased. “We’re going to see Kate and Toby co-parenting and how/if that will change the dynamic in their relationship.”
Kate and Toby welcomed baby Jack in season three a little prematurely. He got to go home, but “he is still a preemie, so we’re going to see what that all means,” Metz teased.
“What I’m excited about is it’s unexpected, but also really important in the way that Dan and the writers have orchestrated Kate and Toby and Jack,” she said.
Metz said the scripts still surprise her. “I’m an audience member on the show that I’m on. I know that sounds silly, but…it’s one of the bets shows on television. The writing is ridiculous,” she said.
“Beyond proud,” Metz said. “To be in the conversation with cable shows that have eight times the budget…and the writers have to write for commercials and acts and we can’t talk about particular things. And we’re talking about real life stuff…It’s just a wholesome great show that I think is teaching people how to move through life because none of know how to do it.”
