This Is Us has returned to our screens for its fourth season, introducing us to a handful of new characters.

We first meet Cassidy, a solider stationed in the Middle East. Upon returning home, her experiences overseas begin to affect her and her relationships. She has trouble finding a job and begins drinking, leading her husband to leave her. Seeking help, she attends a group counseling meeting at a Veterans Affairs center where she crosses paths with Nicky Pearson.

Safe to say we’re already emotionally invested in these newbies. #ThisIsUs

We then meet Malik, a rising junior in high school who works for his father in an effort to support his daughter. He crosses paths with Deja at a cookout, where she tells him that she’s heard he makes a great burger. Using one of his father’s own lines, Malik replies, “For you, I’ll give it everything I got”.

The last character that we meet is one that we have already met in the present. Jack Damon, Kate and Toby’s son. Jack is nameless for a majority of the episode, but we find out a lot about him. He is a sarcastic character with a passion for music, though his visual impairments make life challenging.

And just like that, the Pearsons are back. What did you all think of the season premiere of #ThisIsUs?
