I am so excited that This Is Us Season 2 is about to premiere in the UK. Personally I think it’s a shame that one of my favourite TV dramas has been overlooked by so many due to poor TV scheduling (I’m trying to convince all my friends and family to give it a go!). If it had aired at 9pm on Channel 4 and marketed well I’m sure that it would have been more popular (it is such good TV).
I came across it by accident late one night and found it difficult to find the episodes I had missed anywhere. I ended up having to pay to watch the episodes I’d missed (which was worth it I admit!). If you watched Season 1 and want to watch Series 2 then you can catch it on More4 9pm from Wednesday 4th July. If you are new to This Is Us but want to watch it I would record Season 2 so it’s ready for you to watch once you’ve caught up. Read on to find out how you can watch This Is Us Series 1 in the UK:
What Is “This Is Us”?
Jack and his wife – who is very pregnant with triplets – have just moved into their new home in Pittsburgh. Successful and handsome television actor Kevin is growing increasingly bored with his bachelor lifestyle. Randall – who was abandoned at a fire station by his father as an infant – is a stylish New York-based businessman working to raise two daughters with his wife, Beth. These people are among a group, several of whom share a birthday, of seemingly random individuals whose lives intertwine in unexpected ways.
Watch This Is Us Season 1 on Channel 4 Demand
Channel 4 are currently airing This Is Us Season 1 On Demand. Unfortunately you can currently only watch from Episode 14. I really think that they should have left the whole series available. There is renewed excitement as Season 2 airs.
Watch This Is Us Season 1 on Amazon Prime
I was determined to re-watch Season 1 before Season 2 aired. Luckily I found that it’s now available on Amazon Prime. If you’re already a member you can watch for free. If not you could take out an Amazon Prime 30 Day Trial for free and watch Season 1 during your sample period (remember to cancel your membership or you’ll be charged the annual fee of £79).
