There are very little TV shows that I legitimately count down to the next episode. As a busy mom I know I don’t have time some days to even brush my teeth before school pickup, so the idea of carving out an hour to watch a drama on TV isn’t always realistic.
But, thankfully there aren’t a lot of TV shows that make me want to shift my schedule to make time for it and when does come on the TV schedule, it means it’s a next-level awesome show — and that’s what This Is Us is for me.
For those of you who are obsessed with NBC’s hit drama This is Us, series star Chrissy Metz, who plays Kate Pearson on the show, might look a little different when season 2 debuts next fall.
Metz’s character has struggled with her weight throughout her life, and it’s a major plot point on the show. Metz has always been open about being willing to lose weight for her role in real life, and it looks like she’s doing just that in advance of season 2.
The actress has been very open and honest about her willingness to lose weight for both herself and her character on the show.
Back in November the breakout star spoke to PEOPLE and revealed that she and her character will embark on their weight loss journey together, as it was part of her contract to lose weight when she landed the role.
