More from This Is Us

Look alive, This Is Us fans! This is not a drill. Official photos from the Season 2 premiere, titled “A Father’s Advice,” have been released, and our heads are positively spinning with wonder. First of all, we’re ecstatic to see our favorites back in action and looking great. But secondly, these photos weave a story about where the Pearsons will be when they return.

Season 2 premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 26 and picks up days after Jack and Rebecca’s blowout fight in the past and a few months after the events in the present day. (Specifically, on the the Big Three’s 37th birthday.) Judging by these photos, things have changed and the Pearsons have moved forward — for better or worse. Who’s looking lonely in his car? Who’s missing from a Pearson family day on the town? And who’s wearing a very important piece of jewelry? Find out answers to these questions and more in nine exclusive first-look photos from the Season 2 premiere!

Here’s Rebecca reading a book and looking distressed, presumably one day removed from her and Jack’s big finale fight.

Rebecca and the teenage Big Three hit a sparsely attended matinee, in which Kate doesn’t look particularly amused with the film or the Jack-less family outing.

Kate, wearing a hat we already need to know everything about, and Toby engage (see what we did there?) in a little afternoon fun.

Clearly, Kate and Kevin have upped their fashion games in Season 2, as Kate wears this same interesting hat (for a singing gig?) and Kevin wears stripes.

Kate, Kevin, and Toby are deep in conversation over dinner. What are they talking about?

It’s difficult to decipher exactly where Kevin is, but he doesn’t look too sure about something. Let’s hope it isn’t related to his relationship with Sophie.

Clearly, Randall didn’t get the same memo that it’s time to up the style ante in Season 2. But he looks better than ever during a serious phone conversation.

And Randall might be on the phone with is sister, Kate, who appears to be wearing an engagement ring. Maybe we’ll finally get to see an official proposal from Toby.

Finally, Papa Pearson sits in his car outside of a hotel looking forlorn and suspicious. What’s he up to, and when will he come home?
