‘This Is Us’ Creator Dan Fogelman Admits He’s Already Shot Pieces of The Series’ Final Scene & Teases Season 3

At the “For Your Emmy Consideration” Panel held at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles on Tuesday, This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman brought to light some intriguing twists about the show’s upcoming third season, and a tidbit about the entire construct of the show.   Fogelman said, “We’re pretty far along, our writers are kind of to the end. We have a path for each season of the show. We’ve always had a plan. I don’t think the show will ever – despite any success it may or may not have – will overstay its welcome, and we have a story to tell.”  Then, he added, “I’ve actually already shot pieces of the final scene in the series.”

As to the who is “her” mystery that was brought to light in the season two finale flash forward, which features Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and the adult version of Tess (Iantha Richardson), he coyly said, “I think people are going to be surprised with how we use that timeline.”

And, as for Toby’s (Chris Sullivan) deep depression, seen in the season two finale flash forward, and the backstory of Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson), Fogelman teased they both get showcase episodes, which should be very interesting since we’ve seen showcase episodes before, for the Big Three, played by Justin Hartley (Kevin), Chrissy Metz (Kate), and Sterling K. Brown.

So, who is “her”?  What do you think we’ll learn about Beth’s backstory?  What do you think about that the final episode of the series has already taped one of its final scenes?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Who she is or how it plays out, I haven’t a clue.
I do know, whoever, it will be great.
The writers are phenomenal and I know it will be awesome..

to mention;
the cast is pure harmony! none better.
They fit with each other like puzzle pieces creating one picture..

Excited for the coming season !

I had forgotten the who is “her” teaser, unlike the who shot JR cliffhanger from Dallas(the episode that invented the cliffhanger/teasers) which stayed the hot water cooler topic all summer long so by September everyone was glue to the show on reveal night to find out the answer– So who ever “her” is it wasn’t enough to make me feel impatient for the show’s return to find out, in fact I still can’t picture it my head- LOL
As for them having a series ending in mind already–good for them, some shows make it up as they go (remember Lost)— a clear destination will prevent a show from “jumping the shark”

“This Is Us” defies the usual network Primetime gunk. Well-written & well-acted, which make it return TV. Most network dramas play out quickly. This one definitely has legs.

Judith Chapman Confirms She Is Back On DAYS And As Leo’s Mom

Exciting news DAYS fans, those rumblings were true! Judith Chapman will be playing the trouble-making Leo Stark’s (Greg Rikaart) mother on Days of our Lives.  And that reunites Chapman with Rikaart as mother and son.

As soap fans know, they played Gloria and Kevin Fisher on The Young and the Restless for many years together.  Now they will be playing a new mother/son dynamic duo in Salem. But, just what kind of twisted relationship might they have, since Leo has given clues that she was a bad mom?

Soap Opera Digest revealed that Judith will play Diana.   Her first airdate will be on January 29th.  DAYS fans know Judith from her time as Angelica Deveraux from 1989-1991, and most recently when she returned to the show for the 2018 Halloween episode doing a guest-turn as Angelica AKA Satan in Hattie’s (Deidre Hall) nightmare.

Chapman confirmed her arrival on the Salem scene in a tweet today, stating “And I don’t have to keep the secret either Mitch Sandusky! What a GREAT way to start 2019… More articles to come in TV Guide Magazine and Soap Opera Digest… and to be reunited with my TV son.

Diana will have a past with John Black (Drake Hogestyn), which could cause trouble for John and Marlena’s wedded bliss.

So, excited to know Judith will once again tear up the soap-screen, but this time back on DAYS? Comment below.

Broadway Legend Carol Channing Dies At 97; B&B Remembers Her Time On The Soap

The beloved and iconic star Carol Channing has passed away at age 97.  Best known for her performance as Dolly Levi in Hello Dolly, the Tony Award-winning actress also picked up a Golden Globe for her role in Thoroughly Modern Millie, and was nominated for an Academy Award for it as well, throughout her enduring career.

Reports on Tuesday detail that Channing died at her home in Rancho Mirage, California, of natural causes.

While Channing did so much in her illustrious career, she also appeared as herself back in 1993 on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful.  That’s when the Forresters staged a celebrity-filled fashion show with plenty of glitz.

In a tweet with a photo of B&B’s enduring star, John McCook (Eric Forrester) pictured with Channing, the daytime drama shared: “All of us at mourn the loss of our friend, the legendary star, . She was a true original and there will never be anyone like her. Ms. Channing appeared as herself on B&B in 1993. May she rest in peace.”

Channing’s performance as a diamond-loving showgirl, Lorelei Lee, in the Broadway musical Gentleman Prefer Blondes back in 1949 made her a star.  Marilyn Monroe would play the role in the film adaptation.

Later in her TV career, she appeared on numerous shows including: Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, The Love Boat, Touched by an Angel and several game shows, to name just a few.
