Mandy Moore took to Instagram on Thursday to share a photo with Chrissy Metz and Susan Kelechi Watson, her former This Is Us co-stars. 

The 39-year-old singer-turned-actress — who dealt with a personal betrayal last month — reunited with her friends and colleagues one year after their show culminated.

The mother-of-two wrote in the caption, 'Reunited with my Pearson ladies and all is right in the world. #thisisstillus.'

The women appeared to be at a cafe as they posed side-by-side with megawatt smiles.  

Chrissy, 42, donned a black dress while Susan, 41, donned a colorful, printed kimono.

The post racked up more than 183,000 likes from the star's 5.5 million followers.

Chrissy joined in the comments to write, 'It had been too long! So so so happy to see you Ladies!'

For her part, Susan also left a note that said, 'We won lunch for sure! My stomach and my heart are full.'

She also shared the same photo to her personal Instagram account and said in the caption, 'A year apart was just TOO long. #stillus #thisisus.'

And actor Chris Sullivan, who played Chrissy's husband on the beloved series, also paid tribute to the one-year anniversary of the show's ending. 

Sharing behind-the-scenes outtakes from the final episode, he wrote in a caption: 'A year ago today, and yet also 10 years from today #ThisIsUs.'

In the first of three photos, he held a program from the Mandy's character Rebecca Pearson's funeral, with her death date being 2033.

Chrissy was among the many fans who left comments, as she simply added crying, red heart, and star emoji. 

This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman Entertainment Weekly that the finale had been in the works for several years.

He was so confident about how the show would end, that certain scenes with the child actors had been filmed four years prior, in order to capture them at a younger age.

'It's a testament to how trusting everyone's been in the process,' he said, adding, '[The studio] always really trusted us to do our thing.'

And speaking with Variety, he discussed the decision to have Rebecca pass away in the penultimate episode instead of the series finale.

'To me, the show has been about many things and a lot of people can lock on to different elements of the show. They have favourite characters, they have favourite issues we explore, the dynamics we explore.

'When I zoom out, I've always thought that the show was a lot about the loss of a parent and eventually losing parents. And so that isn't just about the moment of loss, it's about which comes after.'

'So much attention that was put on "How does Jack die?" early on. How Jack dies and the big episode where, in fact, he does die. 

'But so much of our series is about what happens after,' he explained. 'And I always wanted and always had planned for the final episode of the series to revolve around the epilogue of the continuing story of the family rather than the moment.'

'It felt important to me to go out making the show about how the human condition and the human spirit kind of endures and moves forward, rather than just a moment that would have everybody hysterically crying because somebody passes at the end,' he concluded.

This Is Us aired for six seasons between 2016 and 2022.
