This Is Us season 2 gets a UK air date – but it won't be on Channel 4

This Is Us fans in the UK have been waiting patiently for season two and we finally have some good news for you.

Season two will premiere on Wednesday, July 4 at 10pm, only it won’t be on Channel 4, but its digital sister channel More4. The move isn’t that surprising given that the show hasn’t been as big of a hit in the UK as it is in the US.

Without getting into spoilers, season two finally solves the mystery surrounding Jack’s death and picks up from the various season one cliffhangers, including Jack moving out of the family home after a fight with Rebecca, and Randall telling Beth that he wants to adopt a baby.

NBC has already confirmed that the show is coming back for season three in the US on September 25, meaning that unless More4 airs double bills, season two will still be airing in the UK when the next season has premiered in the US.

Hopefully with its new home, we might see season three air in early 2019, potentially starting during the show’s midseason break in the US.

This Is Us isn’t likely to end anytime soon, but creator Dan Fogelman recently revealed that he has already shot parts of the final-ever scene in the series. “We’re pretty far along. Our writers and I are kind of to the end,” he explained.

“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.”

This Is Us season two starts on More4 in the UK on July 4, with season three premiering on NBC in the US on September 25.
