When NBC announces its fall schedule for the 2021-2022 television season, fans of the network and series creator Dan Fogelman's popular series This Is Us will end its run with the upcoming sixth season- according to reporting from The Hollywood Reporter (though representatives from NBC and 20th Television declined to comment). While no official episode count was revealed or confirmed, an 18-episode wrap-up would find the series crossing the lucrative 100-episode finish line that sweetens a series' syndication rights deal (with Disney-owned Hulu and NBC sharing co-exclusive rights to the series).
NBC's This Is Us stars Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Justin Hartley, Chrissy Metz, Sterling K. Brown, Chris Sullivan, and Susan Kelechi Watson. Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, Dan Fogelman, Isaac Aptaker, Elizabeth Berger, John Requa, Glenn Ficarra, Ken Olin, Charlie Gogolak, and Jess Rosenthal executive produce. Now here's a look back at the official trailer for the fifth season, followed by a season overview of the NBC series:
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. Dan Fogelman, Isaac Aptaker, Elizabeth Berger, John Requa, Glenn Ficarra, Ken Olin, Charlie Gogolak, Jess Rosenthal and Steve Beers executive produce. "This Is Us" is produced by 20th Television.
