What can we expect?
This is Us tweeted that they are targeting an early release for the final season in 2022. If things stay on track, season 6 of This Is Us will come out in January 2022. Season 6 will have 18 episodes.
Filming for the final season has not started yet. Fogelman wrote the episode script in August 2021. Filming could start by the end of September 2021, but it depends on how long it takes to write more episodes and do pre-production.
As far as the show living beyond season 6 goes, actress Chrissy Metz says that Fogelman might change his mind in the future and return to do a seventh season or even a spin-off. Fogelman says that he has not talked with the network about this, but they are currently focused on finishing off this story.
What is the plot of “This Is Us” Season 6?
The couple in ‘This Is Us’ breaks up. The mom has Alzheimer’s. She wants her son to build her husband’s house for her before she dies. Toby is a grown-up and Kate is a grown-up. They have a crossroads in their life. One day, they marry Phillip.
The sixth and final season will probably answer questions that last for a long time. We will find out how Kate and Toby drifted apart and we could also find out how Rebecca’s final days were like, and how she became friends with Miguel. We can learn the identity of the mystery person who is in Kevin’s hotel room.
Fogelman has teased that the sixth season of this show will include more flashforwards to help the viewers find out what happened. Fogelman also said that Kevin will find his “self-purpose” and that is how he’ll end up with someone. There won’t be any questions when we get to the end of next season. Everything will be solved. That means that fans can expect a satisfying conclusion to this family saga.
