This Is Us will give fans more revelations about Jack's past on its upcoming third season, star Milo Ventimiglia has revealed in a report.
Speaking with EW, the actor teased:
I really don’t want to hint because I want people to be surprised.
But what he [creator Dan Fogelman] laid out for me — I didn’t see it coming. I really didn’t see it coming. And I had a pretty good understanding of what it was going to be. As he was unfolding the story — and Isaac [Aptaker, This Is Us co-showunner] was there, and they were explaining everything — I went, ‘Oh. Holy s—. Holy s—. Holy s—!’ I kind of felt like Daryl walking out of the backroom card game with all the money, like, “This is going to be so good.” There is a lot to Jack’s history that shapes who he ultimately becomes.
Jack and Rebecca's courting stage will also be explored, said Ventimiglia:
I know that’s an area that Mandy and I have always enjoyed playing around with.
It would be fun to see the discovery of these two people and past that blow-back-your-hair, first moment of sight.
Co-star Mandy Moore, meanwhile, shared that season 3 will delve deeper into Rebecca and Miguel's relationship. She said:
I’m excited to get into the weeds of Rebecca and Miguel, I want to know all about that relationship. Personally, I’m excited to see young Jack and Rebecca because that means Milo [Ventimiglia] and I get to have fun hair and makeup and costumes and stuff, anything in the ’70s gets a big thumbs up from me.
How Will This Is Us End?
Here's the latest from creator Dan Fogelman:
We’re pretty far along. Our writers and I are kind of to the end. We have a path for each season of the show. We’ve always had a plan… I don’t think this show will ever — despite any success it may or may not have — will ever overstay its welcome, and we have a story to tell. And we want to do this the right way. And so we have a plan.” He added: “I’ve actually already shot pieces of the final scene in the series.
BONUS SPOILER BIT:
* According to Fogelman, season 3 will “deep dive” on on the back story of Beth and Deja, who will get “showcase” episodes. He also teased that fans are “going to be surprised what Toby and Beth were like before they entered this family.”
This Is Us season 3 premieres this fall.
