Who Plays Madison on ‘This Is Us’? Meet Caitlin Thompson

0

The Big Three are back for the fifth season of This is Us on NBC. There’s plenty of Pearson family drama to catch up on this season: the intense rivalry between Kevin (Justin Hartley) and Randall (Sterling K. Brown) has been reignited, and series creator Dan Fogelman has also teased that upcoming episodes will feature the rise of the pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement.

Last season left Kevin in a difficult position. Adding onto his falling-out with Randall, he’s facing the aftermath of a one-night stand with Kate’s (Chrissy Metz) best friend Madison. At the end of Season 4, Madison confronts Kevin with the news that she’s pregnant with twins. In a sneak peek for Season 5, Kevin and Madison tell Kate and Toby about the twins — now masked and socially distanced, of course.

Madison seems like she’ll be a prominent new addition to the Pearson family in the new season of This is Us — here’s everything you need to know about the star:
