Phylicia Rashad Joins The This Is Us Cast As Beth’s Mother

by Christine Marie Attardo

It’s time to confess how many times I’ve watched the last episode of This Is Us before their Fall break. Oh, too many times. The explosive finale which left fans with their jaws dropped has been playing over and over again in our heads. What will happen next?

With the series return next week, it was no surprise that creator, Dan Fogelman, hinted a bit about what’s to come. Turns out, Beth’s mother will be joining the show.


Take a look:

Yes, Phylicia Rashad will join the cast, but what role will Beth’s mother play in the episodes to come? We have certainly seen a different side of Beth this season as she goes through some difficult issues. Will the escalate? Later in the day, Dan tweeted once more:

Is that sarcasm, Dan? Tell us now. Time will tell how all of this will unfold. I for one need to know more about the Nick Pearson situation. This is Us returns on January 15th.
