Exciting news for This Is Us fans! Hollywood heavyweight Sylvester Stallone is joining the talented cast as a guest star in Season 2.
Fans will remember last year's finale, where Kevin (Justin Hartley) was offered a major role in a Ron Howard movie that will see him journey to L.A. Well, his co-star in the mysterious film is Stallone!
The show's creator Dan Fogelman confirmed the news to reporters at the TCA Press Tour today, saying Stallone would act as a 'father figure' to Kevin as they work together.
How did this all come about? Apparently, it's thanks to Milo Ventimiglia who plays everyone's favourite TV dad, Jack Pearson. Milo starred in Rocky Balboa with Stallone, and apparently now has the ability to summon him to any role he chooses... we assume.
Season two of This Is Us will premiere in the US on September 26, no word yet on when it will reach Australia. We can't wait!
