It's unclear whether Breckenridge's real-life pregnancy will be written into the new season of NBC's breakout family drama. At the end of the first season, Kevin and Sophie rekindled their romance, while their future was left ambiguous as Kevin was about to leave town to work on a new Ron Howard movie. The premiere, coincidentally, picks up "a month or two" after the finale. A rep for 20th TV, the studio that produces This Is Us, declined to comment on "future storylines."
In early July, Breckenridge celebrated her return to the show, sharing a behind-the-scenes selfie of her outside her trailer. "1st day back," she wrote. "Don't worry you have a couple months to stock up on tissues for season two!"
