While the backstory of Jack's death has consumed This Is Us fans, it is apt to be blown away by other "big whoppers" which Fogelman is promising.

"If when Jack dies is a question that is haunting people, in the second season they will get all the answers they need and want", he said.

"The premise of our show is how the past informs the present", Fogelman said.

Fogelman said plotlines introduced at the end of last season will continue, including Randall and Beth (played by Susan Kelechi Watson) pursuing adoption and Kevin (Justin Hartley) getting his big movie break. "We have a plan and we have not strayed from that plan", he said. "We know we are treading on human emotions, but it's also fun to have plot, intrigue and mystery".

Stallone joins a rich stable of past guest stars on the Emmy-nominated series, including Howard, Katie Couric, Katey Sagal, Brad Garrett, Seth Meyers, Jimmi Simpson and Elizabeth Perkins. The past storyline, meanwhile, will pick up the morning after the big fight between Jack and Rebecca (Mandy Moore).

When the clip was over, and the lights in the hotel ballroom came up, more than one hard-bitten critic was misty-eyed and sniffling at the touching scene.

"Kevin is shooting a big movie and we needed his big costar, and Sly Stallone is coming to do a huge part on the show as Kevin's costar and father figure in the film he's shooting", executive producer Dan Fogelman said during a panel for the hit NBC series at the Television Critics Association press tour on Thursday, August 3.

Season 2 opens with the present day story of the three kids - Randall, Kate and Kevin - a month or two later; it's the Pearson children's 37th birthday. "It's intense - and it's all in the first five minutes of the show".

Fogelman said season two would lean hard into who the family was before and after Jack's death and what he called that "hinge" moment for the Pearsons.

"Something special" is happening, Brown said, adding that, as an African American, he appreciated playing a character who loves his wife and family, bucking the perception that "black men are absent with it comes to family". "And I don't take it lightly".

"This Is Us" returns September 26 at 9 p.m. on NBC.
