Instead of ending the first season on a somber note (i.e Jack's death), things are looking promising for the siblings with Kevin heading off to LA to star in a Ron Howard movie, Kate pursuing a singing career, and Randall starting the adoption process. Fans can also expect a cameo from Sylvester Stallone, who will come in to play himself as Kevin's co-star, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Despite kicking off with a celebration, creator Dan Fogelman did reveal that Season 2 would be “a little darker" especially when it comes to Jack and Rebecca's relationship. “There are repercussions,” Dan told Variety of the couple's heartwrenching finale fight. “You don’t come back instantly from that, but I’d like to believe that doesn’t end a very healthy long standing relationship.”
