Like the majority of This Is Us‘ dedicated fan base, Mandy Moore has some burning questions about the upcoming season 2 that have yet to be answered.

Speaking with PEOPLE at the 38th College Television Awards at the Wolf Theater in North Hollywood on Wednesday, Moore revealed that she’s intrigued by the evolution of Rebecca (Moore) and Miguel’s (Jon Huertas) relationship and is looking forward to unraveling their story.

“Because I know a lot of what happens, I’m excited to see, which I don’t think will happen in season 2, I want to see the evolution of Rebecca and Miguel’s relationship, like how that happened. I’ve heard that that potentially will be later in season 2, maybe beginning of season 3,” said Moore, 33. “And I want to know what happened with Rebecca and Kate’s relationship, why it’s fractured, and why there’s that disconnect.”

Audiences learned in the first season of the NBC family drama that Rebecca’s husband, Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia), dies at some point, and she later marries his best friend, Miguel. Viewers are also given snippets of information about Rebecca and her daughter Kate’s (Chrissy Metz) broken relationship, which Moore believes will “get addressed more” in season 2.

Despite being a star of the show, even Moore is in the dark about what’s to come for the cast’s storyline when she returns to work in July.

“The writers, as far as I understand, don’t even convene until next month. But Milo, of course, because he knows everything, had dinner with Dan Fogelman a couple months ago, and apparently, I’ve heard that some answers people didn’t get in the end of season 1 will be addressed to a certain extent in the beginning of season 2,” she explained.

Although Moore is not yet a parent herself, she credits the series, in which she plays a mother of three, for teaching her a thing or two about motherhood.

“I’m thinking about that next chapter of my life. So it’s not like I’m playing something that feels false, in that sense. If anything, it’s like, it’s sort of ignited this excitement of like, wow, I feel slightly better prepared for that next chapter, whenever that happens,” she said. “It’s a total trial run because you get to have the babies, and then when they act up and they get fussy, mom is right there to sort of like pass them over.”

Having lived a majority of her life in front the public eye, she understands what it feels like to transition from childhood to adulthood in show business — but even she still feels like a kid at times.

“You still feel like the kid, and I started to realize that probably never changes. I just finished working on a film with all young people, like 16, 18, and I realized, I was like, oh wait, I’m the adult in the movie,” she explained. “It’s crazy to sort of come to that realization. I did really kind of relish being the young person, but I also have no problem transitioning to this point in my life either. I’m not someone that’s going to like cling on for dear life to yesteryear. I’m happy to sort of evolve and grow up. I don’t need to go back to my teenage years by any means.”

Moore, who recently purchased a new home, which is undergoing renovations, specifically remembered a moment when she fully understood what it meant to be an adult with responsibilities.

“I think the first time there was a massive like flood in my house. I realized, I was like, oh, this is the part of being an adult that’s no fun. It was like the day after Thanksgiving. I don’t know what kind of like sewage in my basement — it was awful,” she explained, and added, “Those are the sorts of experiences that you’re like, I wish I had mom and dad around to still help with that.”

Season 2 of This Is Us returns this fall on NBC.

If he was still alive, John F. Kennedy would turn 100 years old on May 29 — and although his grandchildren never met the former president, who was assassinated in 1963 at age 46, his ideals continue to impact the nation and their own lives.

In a video made in partnership with the John F. Kennedy Library in honor of the centennial, the president’s daughter Caroline Kennedy and her three children — Rose, 28, Tatiana, 27, and Jack, 24 —remember President Kennedy’s legacy.

“I’ve thought about him and missed him every day of my life, but growing up without him was made easier thanks to all of the people who kept him in their heart,” said Caroline, the 59-year-old former president’s only living child.

She reminisced about hiding under the Oval Office desk and sailing with her father as a child.

“He is a historical figure,” Caroline said. “One hundred years is a really long time, but I think his legacy and these values are timeless and they live on.”

Tatiana, a climate change reporter for the New York Times, shared that she connects with her grandfather by studying history, a pastime also enjoyed by President Kennedy.

“While my grandfather had reverence for the past and the lessons it could impart, he also knew that America was a country where change was possible, where we aren’t bound solely by tradition, if we understand the past with which we are breaking,” she said.

Rose, a spitting image of her grandmother Jackie Kennedy, spoke about her grandfather’s push for equality — work that continues today in injustices such as voting rights and mass incarceration.

“My grandfather would be proud of how far we’ve come as a nation since 1963, but he’d have been the first to tell us that we have a long way to go,” she said.

Jack talked about President Kennedy’s concern for the environment and the ongoing issue of climate change.

“He cared deeply about the environment, about science and technology,” Jack said. “And he recognized that only if America leads the world in solving global problem can we make sure that it’s done right.”

“Great challenges are opportunities,” he continued. “I know that we’re up to the task, but we have to demand action from our leaders, and we have to vote.”

Thousands mourned the 2009 death of Michael Jackson, but none more than his own children.

Two weeks after Jackson’s death, from cardiac arrest brought on by powerful sedatives, his three kids – Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., nicknamed “Prince,” then 12, Paris Michael Jackson, then 11, and Prince Michael Jackson II, nicknamed “Blanket,” then 7 – fought back tears in a downtown Los Angeles sports arena filled with nearly 10,000 mourners.

In the years since that public memorial, the Jackson kids have had an unorthodox upbringing and weathered the squabbles of the sprawling Jackson clan but have done their best to lead normal lives.

“The kids live like Michael is constantly looking down upon them,” a family friend says in the current issue of PEOPLE. But Blanket, now 15, “has had the most problems adjusting after Michael died. He acted very lost and extremely upset.”

For more on the Jackson children and their life now, pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.

In 2015 after reportedly being bullied for years, he changed his name to Bigi.

Although still “shy around people he doesn’t know,” he is now “confident” in his Los Angeles private school environment, focused on grades, sports, movies and hanging out with his friends and nearly 30 cousins.

It’s not exactly clear who is directly in charge of the teenager — whose mother was an unidentified surrogate — due to ongoing family disputes, but the 15-year-old lives at grandmother Katherine Jackson’s Calabasas, California, mansion under the custody of Katherine, 87, and co-guardian T.J. Jackson, 38, Michael’s nephew.

Michael’s relationship with his children is at the center of the Searching For Neverland, a May 29 Lifetime biopic which is based on the bestselling book about Jackson’s final years by two of his bodyguards.
