The season 5 finale of This Is Us just aired, which means we will now be heading into the show’s final season. That’s right — season 6 of This Is Us will be the last one. The new season will air during its traditional Tuesday night timeslot (9PM ET) during NBC’s midseason 2021-22. This will give fans a largely uninterrupted midseason run.
Everyone has a family. And every family has a story. This Is Us chronicles the Pearson family across the decades: from Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) as young parents in the 1980s to their kids (the big three), Kevin (Justin Hartley), Kate (Chrissy Metz), and Randall (Sterling K. Brown) searching for love and fulfillment in the present day along with Toby (Chris Sullivan) and Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson). This grounded, life-affirming dramedy reveals how the tiniest events in our lives impact who we become, and how the connections we share with each other can transcend time, distance, and even death.
After the season 5 finale, which was full of emotion, fans were shown a video of the cast preparing to say goodbye to the beloved series.
The Pearson family took us on a journey we will never forget, and this ending is a very highly anticipated one. We’re definitely going to need a lot of tissues for this goodbye.
