It hasn’t even been three months since the series finale of “This Is Us,” but star Chrissy Metz is already up for bringing the Pearson family back.
Metz, who played Kate for all six seasons on the hit NBC drama, said she would love to revisit her character in a spinoff or a reunion, if show creator Dan Fogelman and executive producers Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger were involved.
“It would be a no-brainer for me,” she told Us Weekly earlier this week. “I do think that we could have a reunion situation in maybe 10 years, because that would be really cool to see where every Pearson is.”
While noting how the show captured an older Kate and Toby with their son Jack as an adult at the end of the series’ run, Metz said there are no limits to what they could do going forward.
“I think it would be really cool, and possibilities are really endless because so many of the stories could have ripple effects throughout other families and other people, so I’m up for it,” she said. “I think it would be really fun.”
While Kate and Toby divorced on the show, Metz did wonder if Fogelman had designs on the couple getting back together, even if it didn’t necessarily make sense.
“In one of the last scenes of the finale, I said to Dan, ‘Are you laying some groundwork or is there something I should know? What is going on? Are they getting back (together)?’” Metz said. “And he’s like, ‘No, Chrissy.’ I’m like, ‘Alright.’”
“I understand why they wouldn’t. And I also thought it was really beautifully poignant that when you love somebody truly, you’ll never stop loving them, and that they’re gonna be co-parenting and wonderful people and friends together.”
While the drama has come to an end, Metz says the cast remains close.
“We definitely have a group chat and we are genuinely friends,” she said. “I don’t think you can do that kind of work and not — well, at least with that group of people. They’re special human angel beings.”
“This Is Us” picked up one Emmy Award nomination (which surprised many people, especially those who felt Mandy Moore deserved to be nominated. While Moore was gracious in expressing her disappointment, Metz has been a little more vocal.
“So, listen, when there are people who are so innately, incredibly gifted and talented who write a show — Dan Fogelman — and who act and star in a show — Mandy Moore — that don’t get recognized for their beautiful work and the way that they have changed people’s lives and hearts and minds, and for the connective tissue between other human beings, and they don’t get recognized for it…” she said on her Instagram story after nominations were announced before gasping to show her disapproval.
“I understand it’s not everything, honey, but it’s something,” she concluded.
Metz has not changed her stance since then, either.
“When you see someone like Dan Fogelman create a show that literally has changed people’s lives and their hearts , to not be recognized for it is sort of frustrating and I was frustrated for Mandy not being recognized when the work that she did is so unreal,” she told Us Weekly.

When there are two Bachelorettes in one season, anything can happen. But what happened during Episode Five, in retrospect, is obvious — because it’s exactly what leads Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey feared would happen. Windey called the situation her “worst nightmare.”
In short, one man professed his feelings for one of the leads — before deciding to pursue the other.
But before unpacking Logan Palmer’s Great Flip Flop, let’s rewind to the fateful first night at the Bachelorette mansion, where the seeds were planted that blossomed into tonight’s episode’s mess.
Both Recchia and Windey developed feelings for Palmer, a 26-year-old videographer from San Diego, Calif. Palmer was the only contestant, of the 32 men in the running for the Bachelorettes’ hearts, to kiss both women on the first night.
As for what they see in him? Based on his official bio, Logan’s “lifelong crush” is Elaine from “Seinfeld.” Witty and self-aware, Logan’s ideal woman is “artsy, low maintenance and down to cuddle by a bonfire under the stars.”
In the third episode, when Recchia and Windey divided the contestants into “teams,” Recchia chose Palmer. While he accepted her rose, he said he harbored feelings for Windey, and often spoke about their kiss.
Two episodes later, and Palmer was itching enough to make his feelings known. He approached Recchia in Episode Five and id he no longer wanted to pursue a relationship with her. “It’s been hard for me moving forward, to kind of forget about that connection … I’m going to have to step away from pursuing things with you,” he said.
Following multiple rejections, Recchia was set aback to the point t that e needed a heart-to-heart with host Jesse PalmerShe ended up cancelling her group date.
“I want to really apologize to you all,” Recchia said to the group. “This morning, Logan did come to my room. He told me that he is interested in pursuing a relationship with Gabby and this is something that Gabby and I … it was kind of our biggest fear. I thought we were farther enough in this process where this wasn’t going to happen. It’s just tough, the constant rejection. And I do want to like, open the floor, if you guys don’t want to be here, you do not have to be.”
Logan went on to explain his feelings to Windey. Windey, saying she was speaking candidly, revealed Logan was their “only overlap,” or the only man they both h had elings for.
Before accepting hihim back into her flockWindey checks with Recchia.a“I just want to check in with Rachel,” she said. “I want to always, always, always put my friends first.”
Windey ultimately gives Palmer another chance, much to the chagrin of the other members of Team Gabby.
During the final rose ceremony, Windey y gavealmer a rose, indicating that she, too, been pining for Palmer when he was a brief member of Team Rachel. By doing so, , Windey sent home Mario Vassal— who received her first impression rose — and Michael Vaughan.
On Twitter, fans responded to Palmer’s great save with skepticism.
Palmer may have won over both Recchia and Windey — but he doesn’t appear to have Bachelor Nation in his good graces.
