There’s going to be a This Is Us special to prepare us for the premiere, and here’s how to watch

Thankfully for Big Three fans everywhere, the third season of This Is Us is only weeks away. And it turns out we won’t even have to wait until the premiere for new content: NBC is airing a one-hour This Is Us special a week before the first episode to get fans pumped up (as if we weren’t already).

The special is appropriately titled “The Paley Center Salutes This Is Us” and will include everything from interviews with the Pearson family to recaps and refreshers to thoughts from the writers and producers.

We’re so excited for more Pearson family content!

Deadline reports that the special will be presented by the Paley Center for Media and will include all of our favorite familiar faces: Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Chris Sullivan, and Susan Kelechi Watson.

“Upon its 2016 premiere, This Is Us captured the hearts of viewers and immediately took its place as one of television’s most beloved dramas, Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO, explained in a statement. “We are proud to once again partner with our friends at NBC for this very special look at the trials and triumphs of the Pearson family before the series returns for its highly anticipated third season.

The special will air September 18th at 10 p.m ET on NBC,  and the Season 3 premiere will air Tuesday, September 25th  at 9 p.m. ET.

Until then, we’ll just be here poring over the Season 3 behind-the-scenes photos for clues, avoiding Crock Pots at all costs, and searching for bargain-priced tissues on Amazon.
