'This Is Us': Sterling K. Brown, Justin Hartley & Chrissy Metz Tease Jack's Death Is Near (Exclusive)

By

This Is Us keeps giving us clues into Jack's death, but it seems we won't have to wait much longer until we find out what actually happened. 

ET's Keltie Knight caught up with the show's cast on the red carpet at the 2018 SAG Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, where they revealed that the answers we seek are just days away.

"Not much longer, honestly," Metz teased of how much longer fans will have to wait to find out exactly how Jack dies. "I promise you, there will be some answers at the end of this season. Not much longer." 

Last week's episode showed Jack and Rebecca head to the store to get batteries for the smoke detector, only to return without them. We know the Pearsons' house burned down at some point -- so are the two connected? 

"That's a huge clue and we're close," Justin Hartley shared. "We are really close to that question that everyone has been asking for a year and a half. Why does [Jack] die and how does he die?" 

"We are really, really close," he continued. "Like, close to this week close... I can't tell you when, [but] if not this week, close to this week." 

"Next week's episode sets up a little bit more of how it all goes down," Sterling K. Brown confirmed. "And then within the next couple of weeks, you'll actually witness it." 

Well, looks like Jack's end is officially near -- and This Is Us is scheduled to air an episode in the sweet spot immediately following the Super Bowl on Feb. 4. See what Milo Ventimiglia told ET about his character's death in the video below. 

This Is Us airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
