Actress and country music singer Chrissy Metz revealed what’s next for her career now that her hit television show, This Is Us, has ended.

Metz took to TikTok on May 31 to share what new projects she’s working on with fans.

“So, people have been asking ‘what is Chrissy going to do?’ ‘What is she going to do when she’s not playing Kate Pearson on that beautiful show This Is Us?’ Well, initially I wasn’t sure,” Metz, wearing a black floral dress, admitted. “I was nervous, I wasn’t sure and you know, when you play a role for six years that put you on the map and brought me into your living rooms every Tuesday night, it’s a little like ‘what’s going to happen?,’” she said.

“Um, and so, so much of that is, knowing that what is meant for me is mine, and it will not pass me by,” she continued. “So, I have to have trust and faith, but seriously I am going to do a movie in Kentucky that is very different from Kate Pearson in This Is Us, which is good right? We got to stretch our acting muscles and I’m working on some music and hopefully doing some tour dates pretty soon. So, just trying to stay creative and then as projects happen and I can talk about them, I’ll let you know.”

In a subsequent TikTok video, Metz appeared alongside songwriter Bradley Collins to share that the pair had written their first-ever children’s picture book.

The book, titled, When I Talk To God, I Talk About You focuses on the dream of raising a child on their unique journey through life with love and guidance through prayer. The book, which is set to be published with Penguin Random House and features illustrations from Lisa Fields, is now available for pre-order.

Metz made her live television singing debut at the 2019 Academy of Country Music Awards, performing her song, “I’m Standing With You” with Carrie Underwood, Lauren Alaina, Maddie & Tae, and Mickey Guyton. The song was featured on the soundtrack for the movie, Breakthrough, which Metz also starred in.

Additionally, Metz has released a handful of songs since 2020, with her most recent single being, “Girl Go,” which dropped in April 2021.

The series finale of Metz’s hit show, This Is Us aired on May 24. The show ran for six seasons on NBC.
