Chris Geere teases Kate and Phillip’s relationship in final ‘This Is Us’ episodes

It’s us Season 6 star Chris Geere spoke to Entertainment Weekly about Phillip’s development and how Kate and Phillip came together.

“I have 18 TV episodes to go from a really frigid, cold, mean ** music guy who’s belligerent and hostile and ridiculous towards the guy one of the main characters falls in love with,” Geere said. “For me, it’s a huge challenge. So, I’m just enjoying the trip. Chrissy [Metz] is just wonderful to work with. She is a lovely person. I’m here for the ride and I’m enjoying it.

He then teased the Kate and Phillip dynamic in Season 6 by sharing, “It’s a working relationship – in the beginning. And then it will, at some point, turn. I don’t know if this has to do with the breakdown of the marriage to build another one.

“But I know from that flash-forward scene she ends up being happy,” Geere revealed. “So she’s not in a bad relationship. She’s with the guy she wants. I just hope I can play this guy.

Chrissy Metz reveals romance between her character and her character’s boss is a slow burn

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Chrissy Metz, who plays Kate, also teased the upcoming relationship between her character and Phillip.

Asked when fans would start to see romantic sparks between Kate and Phillip, Metz said, “Not too soon. [In] the first few episodes of the season, she gets to know him and sees things she didn’t understand at all about Phillip. You can see them getting along, but there is certainly no romance yet. The episode I was able to co-write, which is [episode] 9, which is the Kate episode – it’s going to be a huge turning point for Kate and Toby.

Looks like Kate and Toby won’t end their marriage until at least Episode 9, which means Kate and Phillip’s romance will likely not start heating up until after this pivotal hour.

It’s us Season 6 premieres January 4 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
