We'll finally find out how Jack died on This Is Us on Season 2. But, of course, it's bittersweet for fans who are upset producers chose to kill off our favorite dad.
Fans had been hoping we’d find out about Jack’s emotional death on the Season 1 finale of This Is Us. While that didn’t happen, answers will be revealed soon.
WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW
“I know we’ll find out how Jack dies and I know we’ll see it,” Sterling K. Brown told E! News. “Don’t cry yet! I can’t tell you exactly when it will happen ... it will happen this season.”
There have been plenty of theories and predictions about how Jack died on This is Us. There have been theories that Miguel or Rebecca killed Jack or that Kate accidentally killed him. There were also theories that Jack died in a plane crash.
The cast says that fans still haven’t gotten it right, though. “You’ll never guess it,” Justin Hartley said. “It’s unexpected and it’s extremely heartbreaking and sad and deep and moving and, ugh, it’s painful. It’ll stay with you.”
Milo Ventimiglia keeps trying to tell This is Us fans not to focus on his character's death. “But what I tell people is the novel that is Jack’s life is much more interesting than the footnote of his death,” he said. “Paying attention to how the man lived, especially now with dire times. His wife [Rebecca] and he [Jack] are not together at the end of the season, so you want to see them repaired and put back together.”
So what else will happen on Season 2 of This is Us? The trailer shows we’ll learn more about Jack and Rebecca’s crumbling marriage. “I think people will get some of the answers that they’re looking for and that perhaps didn’t come in the finale,” Mandy Moore said. “They will be satiated by the first bit of Season 2.”
Spoilers also say we’ll learn how Rebecca and Miguel ended up together. We’ll see more about Kevin and Sophie’s relationship and Kate’s singing career. And we'll find out about Randall’s desire to adopt a child on Season 2 of This is Us.
