The cast of This Is Us has something to say to you.

After just two episodes, NBC’s newest hit has gained a reputation for emotional twists, and more prominently, tugging on the heart strings of viewers.

The show follows the Pearson family from the day Jack and Rebecca bring home three babies, to the day said babies grow up and have relationships and children of their own. And all the while, the show explores the many struggles that come with, well, existing.

This Is Us has made such an impact on audiences that EW put it on this week’s cover and declared it the best new show of fall. So when we gathered the cast for the cover shoot, we also made sure that they gave the audience what they deserve most: an apology.
