Following this sad news, Mandy Moore (Rebecca), Susan Kelechi Watson (Beth), Chrissy Metz (Kate) and Dan Fogelman, the creator of This Is Us, made a point of paying loving tributes to Jas Waters. His death will inevitably have repercussions on the rest of the series, since we know it, the show of NBC touches sensitive cords and will undoubtedly be able to pay tribute to him, for example in the writing of the next scenarios. Besides his collaboration in This Is Us for several seasons, although she no longer seemed to take part in the last released episodes, Jas Waters also worked on the series Kidding with Jim Carrey. In parallel with this sad news, and this despite the stopping of filming, the writing of the series continues. Precisely, a painful secret about Kate’s past will be revealed in season 5 of This Is Us.
