EXCLUSIVE: Present-day Nicky is becoming a permanent member of the Pearson clan on NBCs This Is Us. Griffin Dunne, who was introduced as an older version of Jacks once-presumed-dead younger brother Nicky in one of Season 3s biggest twists, has been upped to series regular for the series fourth season.
The expansion of contemporary Nickys presence on the show was hinted in the final seconds of the Season 3 finale when, in a flash-forward, Dunne was seen sitting at elderly Rebeccas (Mandy Moore) bedside. The theories about the characters growing importance on the family drama were confirmed by tonights Season 4 premiere, which marked Dunnes first as a series regular after recurring in Season 3. Im not going to spoil the episode for those who have not seen it but Dunnes Nicky is seen interacting with multiple characters in it.
