For now, details about her character on the NBC hit are being closely guarded.
As we reported last month, NBC gave This Is Us a mega-renewal, ordering three more seasons. In its most recent Season 3, the popular drama averaged a 3.79 rating in adults 18-49 and 13.8 million total viewers (Live+7). Season 4 of the series is set to premiere on Tuesday, September 24.
Morrison appeared on Once Upon a Time for seven seasons. She’ll next be seen in political drama, The Report, directed by Scott Z. Burns. The film is slated for a September 27 release.
Morrison is repped by CAA and Anonymous Content. The actress, director, and producer remains in demand, with numerous television and film projects in the pipeline. She’s also set to direct an upcoming episode of HBO’s Euphoria.
In April 2016, she launched her own production banner, Apartment 3C Productions.
The company’s award-winning first feature Sun Dogs, which Morrison directed, was written by Anthony Tambakis and stars Michael Angarano, Melissa Benoist, Allison Janney and Ed O’Neill.
Sun Dogs recently won both Grand Jury Prize and Best Picture at the 2018 Mammoth Film Festival. The film was picked up by Netflix.
TV Line first reported news of Morrison’s casting.
