The first promo for This Is Us Season 2 has officially been released, and NBC advises fans to have their tissues on the ready.

If you made it through the other side of This Is Us Season 1, then you knew what you were getting into with the highly-anticipated second season. Tears, tears, and more tears. Oh, did we mention tears? Okay, there are also a fair amount of laughs and moments of levity sprinkled throughout the emotion. But that doesn’t mean you need to surrender your tissue box just yet.

Now, we have already seen the exclusive first look sneak peek at Season 2, but we haven’t seen the official television promo… until now. The clip, which integrates footage from Randall and Rebecca’s talk about adoption and Jack, doesn’t offer many new visuals. Memorable moments from This Is Us Season 1 intertwine with blink-and-you’ll-miss-it sneaks at Season 2.

But the kicker weaved into the end of the promo? That hyper-dramatic tear warning: “Have you tissues ready.” It’s not as if fans hadn’t been anticipating ugly crying, but with this bold advisement, it’s safe to say Ken Olin’s suggestion to upgrade to beach towels checks out.

As previously mentioned, the season opener will feature a long time coming heart-to-heart between Rebecca and Randall, who will be pursuing an adoption with Beth. Elsewhere, Kate and Kevin with continue to reconcile their professional and personal lives as the looming question of “How did Jack die?” looms overhead of us all.

With a little more than two weeks on the countdown, the anticipation for the feels has only begun. Watch the official promo for the This Is Us Season 2 premiere in the video below! (You might need your tissues now. Rebecca’s comment about Jack? Yeah, you’ve been warned.)
