With just four episodes remaining in the final season of This Is Us, the groundbreaking intergenerational family drama is getting ready to tie up its tale and that means finally getting to understand one of the show's most beloved characters, Miguel Rivas played by Jon Huertas. Over the years, fans have only seen glimpses of Miguel's past and current relationship with matriarch Rebecca Pearson (Mandy Moore), but never received the full picture of who he is. Ahead of tonight's new episode aptly titled "Miguel," Huertas previews to PopCulture.com what fans can expect from the surefire heartbreaking journey that will chronicle Miguel's life over the years.
On Tuesday night, the story of Miguel was told. Finally.

Before This Is Us closes down, Miguel gets his close-up. In the fourth-to-last-ever episode of NBC's hit family drama, titled "Miguel," the story of Jack's best friend and Rebecca's second husband (Jon Huertas) will be laid bare — from the Roberto Clemente-worshipping kid who moved with his family from Puerto Rico to Pennsylvania, all the way to the devoted husband caring for Rebecca (Mandy Moore) as her battle with Alzheimer's continues.

I got to jump into the writers' room a little bit and infuse much of my own personal journey and stories and anecdotes that we could mold into the character and make it fit Miguel."
