The main cast will return. Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, Sterling K. Brown, Justin Hartley, Chrissy Metz, Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Sullivan will all be back, as well as recurring characters like Madison (Caitlin Thompson) and Jack Damon (Blake Stadnik). While there don’t seem to be as many things to discover in past stories, Fogelman says it’s not true. “Jack and Rebecca will always be in the series in these past timelines, as well as younger versions of the children,” he said. Regarding future screenplay, Fogelman says the series will continue to advance in the years to come, not just the deep future where Jack Jr. lives. “It’s so interesting to think that we started with Rebecca and Jack, with him sitting down with a towel, then decades later, there will be all these human beings who will be ramifications of these people. “
