NBC Picks Up Full Season of #ThisIsUs

Just after a week ago of it's premiere, NBC has announced that This Is Us has gotten picked up for a full season. 

This order for a complete first season of 18 episodes is exactly what we'd wanted and hoped for, " said Dan Fogelman, creator and executive producer, in a statement. "We'd carefully mapped out an 18-chapter story for the first year of the show, and this allows us to follow through with our exact initial intent. And to get the order so early on is a tremendous show of confidence and a boost for our entire cast and crew."

The newly twisted family drama premiered last Tuesday to 10.1 million total viewers and a 2.8 ratings demo, marking it as the Big 4's highest-rated drama debut since last fall's Supergirl and not to mention Blindspot. It also marked NBC's highest-rated scripted program in the time slot in more than six years, since an April 2010 episode of Parenthood.

You can catch This Is Us tonight at 10/9c after The Voice on NBC.
