Get ready to say goodbye to the Pearson family! NBC’s drama series This Is Us is coming to an end with season six, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Though representatives for NBC and studio 20th Television declined to comment on the news, THR reports that the network is set set to make an official announcement about the series ending on Friday. The news comes just a few weeks before the season five finale, which will air on May 25.
Showrunners Isaac Aptaker and Dan Fogelman have previously discussed their plans to end the series after six seasons. “From day one, Dan came in with his master plan for the big picture stuff of the show and said, ‘I think this is where we end up. I think this is what I know. Let’s figure out the rest together,'” Aptaker previously told Deadline. When POPSUGAR spoke to Mandy Moore in 2019, she revealed that Fogelman has been very open with the cast about his vision for the series. “We’ve been told pretty much what happens next season and we know how the show ends, so it’s just whether or not it’s five or six seasons is what they’re deciding on right now.” We’re definitely eager to see how the series comes to a close!
