Love This is Us? Then you’ll be happy to hear NBC has given the green light to a two season pickup.

The Network revealed two minimum 18-episode seasons of its Tuesday night drama during NBC’s Critics Association press tour announcements earlier today.

“We all got our wish that this is a hit show,” said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment. “‘This Is Us’ is as good as anything we’ve ever had, we’re thrilled to renew it for two seasons and there’s no doubt it will have a long life on NBC. On behalf of everyone at NBC, we’re grateful for the artistry of the cast, crew, and producers assembled by our gifted creator, Dan Fogelman. In a world where there are literally hundreds of television dramas, we’re proud to have one of the very best that is also one of the highest-rated.”

This is Us is an ensemble drama following the lives of the Pearson family both in the past and present. The series stars Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Justin Hartley, Chrissy Metz, Sterling K. Brown, Susan Kelechi Watson, Chris Sullivan and Ron Cephas Jones.

It currently airs Tuesdays on NBC.
