It looks like the new season of 'This is Us' will have some scenes in Philadelphia

Crews for the NBC drama were spotted in the city recently

Everyone's favorite show to emotionally destroy you, NBC's "This Is Us," is coming back this fall with season (big) three, and it looks like Philadelphia is making a cameo.

HughE Dillon spotted "This Is Us" crews at WHYY earlier this week, filming in the lobby of the public broadcasting network's building at 150 N. Sixth St. Pictures show "Fresh Air" host Terry Gross, most likely playing herself, opposite Justin Hartley, playing the ever-troubled Kevin Pearson.

Also spotted at WHYY was Melanie Liburd, who presumably will be playing Hartley's love interest as Zoe, as teased in the Season 2 finale. Here's a little refresher on how it all left off:

Though it's possible that the summer break gave us all renewed strength to stop dissolving into tears at every scene from "This Is Us," that refresher is enough to just ... whew. Tissues, please.

Today, Aug. 31, also marks the birthday of four major characters in the show, Jack Pearson and his three kids. In honor of the occasion, "This Is Us" asking fans to celebrate on social media. 

Ahead of the date, Entertainment Weekly also gave a peek at the new season, including a still of Milo Ventigmilia (as Jack) and Mandy Moore (as Rebecca) on what looks like a first date in the 1970s. 

The new season of "This Is Us" begins Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 9:00 p.m. on NBC.
