Chrissy Metz teased season two of “This Is Us” and celebrated her Emmy nomination during a live interview on Tuesday’s “Today” show. Check out the video below!

As Gossip Cop reported, “This Is Us” was among the top nominees when the Emmy nominations were announced earlier this month. Among the eight nods scored by the hit NBC drama, Metz is up for Outstanding Supporting Actress, and co-stars Sterling K. Brown, Milo Ventimiglia, Ron Cephas Jones, Gerald McRaney, Bryan Tyree Henry and Denis O’Hare all earned nominations, too. Asked on the morning show if this exceeds her “wildest dreams,” Metz told Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb, “Absolutely!”

“Literally, I was going to quit acting and move back home and now my mom’s gonna be my Emmy date. It’s really exciting,” she said. Metz admitted she wasn’t confident after auditioning for the show, but the day did feel “differently.” And “after jumping through hoops,” she said, “it feels good because you feel like you earned it and it was the right thing.”

It was at the “emotional” cast table read that Metz first sensed “This Is Us” would have an abnormal impact. “Then probably in the fourth or fifth episode, we start to see people really get into it, and then I cry with strangers in bathrooms and random people at stores,” she explained of the show’s breakout trajectory. Of those fans who approach, Metz revealed, “It’s typically ‘thank you so much for enlightening me,’ or ‘I’ve never had a relationship with my daughter who had a weight issue; I never understood her and thank you for doing this.”

The actress amusingly went on to tout being able to afford her own washer and dryer now, but said more seriously, “To be a part of something so spectacular on every level and it’s something you’ve always wanted to do and it’s changing people’s lives, it’s like everything you could ever ask for.” As for the new episodes, which are currently in production, Metz teased, “We’re gonna see how Jack has passed away, how that has all affected everyone.” Watch the the full video below!
