'This Is Us' Will Deal With Jack's Death Soon

It’s safe to say you’ll continue to need tissues by your side while watching This Is Us.

Creator Dan Fogelman says that we’ll be seeing more about Jack’s (Milo Ventimiglia) death in coming episodes.

“Next week’s episode is a big episode,” he said during the 2017 Television Critics’ Association press tour (via E! News). “Next week is a big week, and then we have a while to go in the big picture.”

“There’s a before and after for this family,” Dan added. “Even in the pilot, even before you knew there was anything off with Jack, there’s a hinge in this family, and it’s kind of a before with Jack and an after. That will be really interesting in future seasons and as we go forward, to show where that hinge was, how it happened and what happened to these people before and after it.”

Pictured: Stars Milo, Mandy Moore, Chris Sullivan, Susan Kelechi Watson, Ron Cephas Jones, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, and Justin Hartley attend the panel at the Langham Hotel on Wednesday (January 18) in Pasadena, Calif.

'Portlandia' Will End With Season 8 in 2018

We have good news and bad news for Portlandia fans.

The good news is that the IFC comedy series has been renewed for an eighth season.

The bad news is that the eighth season will be its last.

IFC president and general manager Jennifer Caserta made the announcement during the 2017 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour held at the Langham Hotel on Saturday (January 14) in Pasadena, Calif.

“I think we barely decided to do that,” co-creator Jonathan Krisel said when asked why they chose to end the series. “Season 8 seemed like, ‘OK, we’ve done a lot.’ We’re not getting to a stage where we’re not bored with it. We still love it… it seems scary to say it’s over.”

Season 8 will premiere in 2018, marking the the time fans will get to witness Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein‘s on-screen adventures.
