This Is Us executive producers Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger appeared in the season two finale aftershow to give a little insight into what we're going to see in season three. After we spent the season learning how Jack died from smoke inhalation during a house fire and seeing his children finally learn to let go, we're going to be learning new things about Jack's life.
"I think season two was so much about Jack's death obviously, and I think season three, in a really cool way, is going to be more about his life and sort of focusing on these chapters that we haven't yet seen," Berger revealed. "I think Jack has alluded to Rebecca that he has a lot of secrets and there are parts of his life that even she hasn't been privy to, and we're going go get to really explore those parts in a really exciting way."
We also got a glimpse of what things could have been like if Jack had lived in the finale, when Kate dreamed of her parents renewing their vows after 40 years. That appearance by Jack as an older man served as both a way for Jack to be present at the wedding and a way to help Kate move on after her dad's death.
"Obviously a wedding is going to bring up so much for Kate especially in regards to her dad not being there, so we were sort of like how can we incorporate him into this and make him part of this day?" Berger said.
