We have so many questions we need answered. It's honestly painful to write this out of anticipation. Who is the woman that Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and older Tess (Iantha Richardson) are not ready to see? They might not be ready, but we so are! The editing makes it seem like they're about to visit Deja. But, part of us feels like it's going to be Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson). Can't wait to find out like us? When does This Is Us return with its season 3 premiere? Here's everything we know about the biggest comeback NBC has in its lineup. But, we're not too sure you want to know.

In the meantime, you can always catch up on the good, the bad, and the emotionally scarring moments of This Is Us seasons 1 and 2. Don't worry if you weren't able to watch the episodes live on NBC. We'll tell you where to watch it online so that the only thing you'll have to worry about is everything else.

When Does This Is Us Come Back?

The season 2 finale aired on March 13 at 9/8c. But, when does NBC start airing new episodes of This Is Us again? Unfortunately, the network has yet to announce the date for the next installment to the hit drama. But, we're hoping that we'll find out soon since we've known that NBC renewed season 3 before season 2 even aired on television for all audiences to see. And from the phenomenal ratings for season 2, we're waiting to hear if there will be a season 4. But, for now, we don't know when the series will return to our Tuesday night lineup.

But, when can we expect the season 3 release date? While we're all patiently awaiting for that information to be released, seasons 1 and 2 of the drama were released on September 20, 2016 and September 26, 2017. So, we'll probably see the season 3 premiere of This Is Us mid-September 2018. But, keep checking back with us. We'll update this article once the official announcement has been made.

This Is Us Season 3 Details

Here's everything we know about what's coming up next fall!

How Many Episodes Is This Is Us Season 3?

Since NBC already ordered season 3 back in 2017, we already know that the third season will be 18 episodes, just like season 2. And is there room for more episodes? NBC Entertainment President, Jennifer Salke hinted, "There's no doubt [This Is Us] will have a long life on NBC." So, there could be a season 4 announcement on the horizon. We'll see.

Is Jack Coming Back?

Since the public found out how Jack died on the show, people have expressed their concern about his return for upcoming seasons. However, Ventimiglia set the record straight.

"Even though we saw Jack pass, that doesn't mean I, Milo, am leaving the show," Ventimiglia told Today. "There's no Ned Stark happening."

Main Cast Of This Is Us Season 3

Speaking of cast, the show will continue to star Milo Ventimigila, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Justin Hartley, and Chrissy Metz.

And for those of you who want to watch seasons 1 and 2 of This Is Us season 5 catch up on what you've missed, here are a few options, from viewing reruns on television to watching the episodes online!

Where To Watch This Is Us Episodes Online And On Television

We're sad to announce that NBC does not air reruns of This Is Us seasons 1 and 2 on their regular primetime schedule. In fact, the television network airs its new drama, Rise in the usual Tuesday 9/8c slot. However, this doesn't mean you can't catch reruns whenever you want online.

While you cannot watch every episode of season 2 on NBC's website, you can catch the five most recent episodes for free online. However, there's a catch. Past the five episodes, you'll have to sign into your cable provider because NBC locks the episodes. And soon, you'll have to sign into your cable provider to watch all the episodes on the official NBC site per their policy. Luckily, there are other ways of watching online.

If you have a Hulu subscription, you're in luck. You can watch This Is Us seasons 1 and 2 online whenever you want with a Hulu Plus subscription. You can choose between the limited commercial plan or the no commercial plan. Whatever your preference, you'll have complete access to every aired episode of your favorite drama. And if that isn't something to celebrate, we don't know what is.

Not much of a subscription person? You can also choose to buy the individual episodes or full season online through Amazon, iTunes, or Vudu. This allows you to individualize what you watch and only pay for what you want.
