— "This Is Us" returns Tuesday at 9 p.m. on WRAL.

The two-hour season premiere will incorporate some of the real-life situations we've experienced this year, including the impact of the pandemic, social unrest and the Black Lives Matter movement.

Creator Dan Fogelman told reporters on Friday that it would be irresponsible not to include current events in the new season.

"When I was sitting down and weighing the decision of what we were going to do and just considering where our show lives -- with like this American family that has a lot of different pockets and spans time -- it felt almost irresponsible not to kind of take on the moment," he said.
