NBC has tapped another star to serve behind the lens for its hit show, "This Is Us". After Oscar winner Helen Hunt directed an episode in season 1, the hit NBC show welcomes Regina King in directorial role for an upcoming season 2 episode.

According to Variety, the two-time Emmy winner will helm episode 206. The episode is scheduled to begin filming next week.

It will mark a reunion for Regina and "This Is Us" creator Dan Fogelman. "The Leftovers" alum previously helmed an episode of Dan's short-lived baseball drama, "Pitch".

Regina, who is currently nominated for an Emmy for her role on "American Crime", is no stranger to directing as she has logged an impressive lineup of behind-the-camera credits. Making her episodic directorial debut on "Southland" in 2013, the actress has ABC's "Scandal" and "The Catch", BET's "Being Mary Jane", OWN's "Greenleaf" and TNT's "Animal Kingdom" in her resume. Recently, she just finished directing an episode of Showtime's "Shameless".

Just yesterday, "This Is Us" dropped the first look at the upcoming season 2 featuring Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and Randall (Sterling K. Brown). As his wife Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) is struggling with his adoption plans, Randall asked his mother how she and Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) decided to adopt him back then. It was later revealed that Rebecca opposed the idea at first, before Jack convinced her that baby Randall was meant to be theirs.

Also starring Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Ron Cephas Jones and Chris Sullivan, the upcoming season 2 will be packed with some guest appearances. Sylvester Stallone and Debra Jo Rupp are among the confirmed guest stars.

"This Is Us" season 2 is scheduled to kick off on Tuesday, September 26 at 9 P.M. on NBC.
