This Is Us is expanding their family and we couldn’t be happier. The NBC drama has upped Alexandra Breckenridge and Jon Huertas to series regulars ahead of season two.
Breckenridge portrays Sophie, Kate’s childhood best friend and Kevin’s childhood crush, ex-wife and apparent one true love. When we last left Sophie in season one, her and Kevin were finally clicking again, but Kevin was offered a major movie deal. Breckenridge being upped to a series regular is good news for us. We love Kevin and Sophie’s love story and we were hoping to see more of it. Call us Team Kevin and Sophie. Breckenridge appeared in five episodes in season one.
Meanwhile Huertas’ Miguel plays a major role in both the past and present. In the past, Miguel is Jack’s best friend. In the present, Miguel somehow ended up with Rebecca. Miguel and Rebecca’s current relationship is one of the big mysteries of This Is Us and we’re hoping to get some answers.
Breckenridge and Huertas join Milo Ventimiglia, Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Metz, Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson, Chris Sullivan and Ron Cephas Jones as series regular for This Is Us.
This Is Us returns with brand-new episodes September 26, 2017
