Chrissy Metz talks about what’s next after This Is Us

Chrissy Metz, who played Kate Pearson for six seasons on This Is Us, reveals what’s next for her after the show and a possible return for her character!

Chrissy Metz talks about what's next after This Is Us

Her musical journey

The actress, writer, and singer is gearing up for a multi-city music tour kicking off on August 9, during which she’ll perform at City Wineries across Washington D.C, Philadelphia, New York City, Boston, Chicago, Atlanta, and Nashville. 

“I’ve been writing for several years and to be able to finally share it in real-time is thrilling and scary and wonderful. It’s such a gift to be able to do that and to have an amazing band and also great venues. City Wineries are really great locations and I’m excited about that and also just to share my experiences really about the last decade of my life.”

“I’m nervous about it because, yes, I’ve played shows obviously, but to play a seven-city tour is another thing. I have a couple of covers, but most of the show is all original songs. You’re always like, “Oh, I want people to like them. I want people to be inspired and I want them to leave feeling good,” and that was a bonus. That is a beautiful bonus that we all want because we all want to be validated. At least, I know I do, but I also hope that through my heart and soul people will be moved.”

She also revealed there’ll be a little homage to the series too!

Chrissy Metz after This Is Us

Metz says it’s weird not to go back on set

“Yes, literally about a week ago I woke up and I was like, “Oh, right, right, OK.” I joke, but it’s a little bit of a grieving process. You miss something terribly and the people and almost a decade of your life, that’s a long time. It feels weird. It feels very weird not to be there. When we all chat and FaceTime and all that I miss everybody and I miss preparing and getting ready for the day or the episode. Sometimes I’m like, “Oh, right, I don’t have to be somewhere,” and then sometimes I’m like, “But I wanted to be.” It’s a weird thing. It’s all the feelings.”

If there’s a chance to return to her role in a movie, spinoff, or reunion special, she’s in!

“Now whatever Dan does [I want to be a] part of it. If I’m included, if he needs me to get him coffee, I will do that. I’m just so in awe of him and his brilliance and his storytelling. I would love a movie. I think that would be so cute, a little reunion something. We’ll see. Even if there’s a spinoff or offshoot or something and Kate happens to be in the background, yes, I’ll be there, but who knows? People say, “No, it’s not going to happen,” and then it might happen. You just got to keep everybody on their toes.”

The Florida native added that she would only return for a revival or movie if This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman and showrunners Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger were involved, but she can see plenty of directions that the writers could take after the initial six-season arc.

“I think it would be really cool, and possibilities are really endless because so many of the stories could have ripple effects throughout other families and other people,” Metz explained. “It would be really fun.”

She wouldn’t necessarily want her character, Kate Pearson, to rekindle her romance with ex-husband Toby (Chris Sullivan), however. As of the series finale, the duo were divorced and coparenting their two children, Jack and Hailey.

“In one of the last scenes of the finale, I said to Dan, ‘Are you laying some groundwork or is there something I should know? What is going on? Are they getting back [together]?’” actress told Us. “And he’s like, ‘No, Chrissy.’ I understand why they wouldn’t. And I also thought it was really beautifully poignant that when you love somebody truly, you’ll never stop loving them, and that they’re gonna be coparenting and wonderful people and friends together.”

Metz is sad about how the Emmys snub Mandy Moore

“I was frustrated for Mandy not being recognized when the work that she did is so unreal and when it’s so subtle and nuanced,” she revealed.

“I think people don’t realize what it really takes and how many hours she would sit in the hair and makeup trailer before she even got to set. And oh — of course she was pregnant!”

Currently studying Communication sciences, when I’m not crying for university, I’m crying for TV series. I like running off into imaginary worlds because they’re way better than reality. Oscar nominated for mental movies. A perfect mix of Jane Sloan, Jessica Day and Clary Morgenstern (The book version, though). In my free time, I write articles and TV series reviews, so to combine two biggest passions of mine.
