Chrissy Metz Read the “This is Us” Season 3 Premiere Script on a Plane and a Flight Attendant Had to Ask If She Was Okay


Now that “This is Us” has an official premiere date for season 3, fans (including yours truly) are counting down the days to when we get to see the Pearson family again. 

Both Mandy Moore and Chrissy Metz took to Instagram to share that they’d finally gotten the script for the season 3 premiere episode and, naturally, it rocked them to their cores. 

“Just read our season 3 premiere episode on the flight home…the flight attendant asked if I was okay…still not sure,” Chrissy posted on her Instagram story.

Promising, right?

We’ve already heard a little bit from our favorite “This is Us” cast members about what we can expect during season 3— Justin Hartley (i.e. Kevin Pearson) claims that season 3 is going to be bigger than seasons 1 and 2 combined…if that’s even possible. 

Milo Ventimiglia said that though Jack Pearson has passed, we’ll still get a look at his life before he met Rebecca and had kids. *Sigh* 

We're holding onto these moments forever. Cheers to an amazing Season 2! #ThisIsUs
