You'll Be Seeing a Lot More of Two Characters in This Is Us Season 2

And it means big things for Kevin

Lindsay MacDonald

Information aboutThis Is UsSeason 2 is still thin on the ground -- and info on Jack's (Milo Ventimiglia's) death even thinner -- but we do know that we'll be seeing a lot more of Miguel (Jon Huertas) and Sophie (Alexandra Breckenridge).

Both actors have been promoted to series regulars for Season 2, TVLine reports, where they had before just been recurring characters.

Sophie and Kevin's (Justin Hartley) relationship was just starting to get back on track before he went to pursue a new movie deal, which had us worried Sophie might fade into the background after that. The news that Breckenridge is now a regular puts that suspicion to rest, which can only mean good things for Kevin.

Also, can we get a Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Sophie scene up in here? These girls were best friends at one point, right?

As for Miguel, we always new he'd be a centerpiece in Season 2. Sometime after Jack's death, Miguel and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) got together and are now married in the present, which is a story we've been dying to see since Episode 2 revealed that little twist.

This Is Us returns this fall on Tuesdays at 9/8c on NBC.
