Mandy Moore, known to many as a singer and also from her time on “Red Band Society,” is also a part of the cast, as is “People v. O.J.” actor Sterling K. Brown. Chrissy Metz of “American Horror Story: Freak Show” is on the show and things are said to get off to an intriguing and addictive start during the Tuesday premiere.

As the buzz swirls about “This Is Us,” people are already wondering if this show could become the next “Parenthood.” That is a lot of pressure to put on a new show, and TVLine notes that it is far too early to equate the two shows.

However, this new series could give “Parenthood” fans a bit of what they have been missing from the sounds of things. While the premise is different, early teasers note that this is a family-focused series that will tug at people's emotions.

What's the premise of 'This Is Us'?

The show follows several different sets of characters who are all linked by sharing the same birthdate. “This Is Us” spoilers tease that there is quite a bit of drama laid out during the premiere, but the previews have been resonating with people.

As Ventimiglia teased via E! Online, it's an inclusive show that has something for everyone. Moore notes that the new show provides something that is missing from the current television landscape and she notes that it is a series that will be cathartic for viewers and is quite relatable.
