During a chat with TODAY earlier this month, the cast members of "This Is Us" described how close they've become since the show's 2016 premiere.

"We love the show and we love each other," said Hartley, explaining that each actor knew the show was special and "took care of it like it was our child."

"When you spend this much time with people, you learn about their personal lives and about their struggles and their history and their legacy and all of that," he added. "It becomes something that is this family."
