The cryptic This Is Us reunion photoshoot

On March 3, Brown, Moore, and Sullivan all got together for a photoshoot via a mysterious Instagram account called ''That Was Us.'' In the footage, we get to see the three all hugging and smiling together. 

''There’s a new big three in town… #ThatWasUs,'' the post read. But what could it possibly mean?

Brown, Moore, and Sullivan first hinted at the reunion back in January by sharing sentimental photos of themselves as children and reflecting on how their This Is Us roles helped them grow emotionally. Brown, who played Randall Pearson, posted a vintage snapshot of him as a child alongside his late father. 

''I lost my father when I was just 10 years old. He was just 45…and while my time with him was short, it was everything I could’ve hoped for. Today, at the age of 47, I am thankful and blessed to be a husband, friend, and father to two boys of my own. I get to be there with them, for them…I get to be here, breathing."

"Makes me think back to filming one of Randall’s final scenes with William. Placing my hands on both sides of his head, saying 'breathe with me', breathing together as Randall and Jack did years earlier, and breathing together until William’s last breath.

Loss is devastating, but to experience such heartache for someone means they must’ve been some kinda wonderful and my dad was that. Wonderful. #ThisIsUs and #ThatWasUs @thatwasus ✊🏿🙏🏿,'' he captioned the post.
