''This Is Us'' Season 3 is done and dusted and now we're looking forward to whatever this TV series will bring. The third season finale wrapped up an intense season in a satisfying manner.

Taking some time to allow things to settle down is a natural move. A lot has happened during the third season. We had major events occurring; Kate and Toby's son was born, Zoe and Kevin relationship thrived and then decayed, Jack Pearson and his Vietnam story uncovered the missing brother Nicky, Randall and Beth had to dig out a way to cope with their new lives, and we also had that huge leap into the future timeline with Rebecca Pearson being pictured living her final days.

Now, with Season 4 looming at the horizon, some new coordinates may be needed to help us sail safely in these troubled waters ''This Is Us'' has been pushing us into.

Cast additions for Season 4

As far as the cast additions for ''This Is Us'' upcoming season is concerned, a new paternal figure will emerge. According to goodhousekeeping.com, Rebecca Pearson's father will take a major role in Season 4. The show's mastermind Dan Fogelman said that the cast is expected to grow bigger as the show progresses deeper into the Pearson's universe.

That statement comes to reinforce Fogelman's statement that the show will focus more on the past timeline in the future.

The show could return in September 2019 on NBC

In the absence of any official information on the matter, we can only assume the show's next season will follow a similar path as it did in the past years. ''This Is Us'' has traditionally started a new chapter during the fall season.

At this point, there's no indication the show's upcoming season would take a different course.

Therefore, the safest bet is that the season 4 premiere date will be during the fall.

Sterling K. Brown helped a lot by tweeting a farewell message.

The show will be available on Hulu

Regardless of one's eagerness to be up to date with a show, sometimes there's just not enough hours in a day to make it work.

When it comes to ''This Is Us'' in particular, the show will be available for streaming on Hulu.

There's another option for those who'd like to catch up with the show as the NBC network has its own app allowing you to do that.

What direction the show will take next

Jack Pearson will remain the most beloved character of the entire series no matter what will happen next. According to cosmopolitan.com, we will be getting more about Rebecca's earlier life. That would include more about her younger version and her father, and likely less about Jack Pearson.

Most likely, as next months will go by, more season four details will emerge. As the narrative has already branched out in ways that were explored before, the level of expectations is expected to remain constant.
