This Is Us, the show people like to cry to, has been renewed for three new seasons. That’s three new seasons in which people could potentially be murdered by crock pots.

Or fires created by crockpots, whatever.

People reports the show’s renewal will take it to six seasons, up to 2022, after which it will probably end. But that’s a probably will end, okay? “We never set out to make a television series that was going to last 18 seasons, and so we have a very direct plan,” creator Dan Fogelman recently told The Hollywood Reporter. “I have script pages I have written and I’m writing that really are deep, deep, deep into the future.”

And what does the future bring? More inevitable death. The show will have to sustain it’s teary reputation somehow! God knows they dragged Jack’s mystery demise out forever.
