(2018) Sterling K. Brown's Golden Globe award for Best Actor in this drama TV series made him the first black man to win this category in the ceremony's 75-year history.
Almost completely broke when she landed the role of Kate on the series, Chrissy Metz only had 81 cents in her bank account when she auditioned for the series.
Mandy Moore won her role after an audition suggested by writer Dan Fogelman, whom she knew from working on Tangled (2010).
The same house is used in an outdoor shot of Kate's home as is for Mitch and Cam's home in Modern Family.
When Rebecca and Randall say to each other "I love you", "I love you more", "I love you most", this is a reference to Tangled, in which Mandy Moore starred.
In Season 1 of This Is Us (2016), Chris Sullivan hides the show's People's Choice Award in scenes at Randall's house. As seen on The IMDb Show (2017).
Sterling K. Brown, Denis O'Hare, Chrissy Metz and Alexandra Breckenridge have all appeared in TV shows produced by Ryan Murphy. Brown was in American Crime Story (2016). O'Hare, Metz and Breckenridge were in American Horror Story (2011).
The wall art hanging in Kate's living room is the same as a wall hanging in Jules' living room in Cougar Town (2009).
Ken Olin (Executive Producer) and Timothy Busfield (Director) worked together on Thirtysomething (1987).
The same art work representing a drawing of a man, appears in Grace & Frankie in the den of Robert Hanson (Martin Sheen) as does in the home of Beth & Randall.
Randall and Beth met in college. Coincidentally, Sterling K. Brown and Susan Kelechi Watson also met in college; they attended the NYU's Tisch School of Arts together.
