This Is Us Season 5 will return on NBC on Tuesday nights at 9 P.M. EST. NBC posted an Instagram post on June 17, showing the schedule of upcoming shows. Though the dates weren’t mentioned, fans are happy to see that their favorite family show is back on the table.
This Is Us is an American romantic family drama created by Dan Fogelman. It aired on NBC on September 20, 2016. The series follows the lives of three siblings, Randall, Kevin, and Kate Pearson. They were born on the same day. It shows their life’s story and struggles individually. The family values inherited by Jack and Rebecca Pearson are passed on to their children, but with massive alterations. The show takes us along concepts like substance abuse, domestic violence, neglection, attention, adoption, and racial differences.
Will there be a Season 5?
Yes, there will be season 5 and season 6, which will mark the show’s end. While promoting the third season, the showrunner Isaac Aptaker mentioned that the team was working on “three seasons in the future.” NBC also posted the show’s renewal via Instagram.
When will This Is Us Season 5 air?
The pandemic has tossed over the plans for the show’s fifth season. It was initially decided that the fifth season will air on September 22, 2020. However, due to COVID-19, filming never began. Actress Mandy Moore who plays the role of Rebecca Pearson, said on Today show in July, “Right after the Fourth of July is when we typically go back.” She also mentioned that they would go back when it’s safe for them.
Actor Jon Huertas told Entertainment Weekly, “Dan Fogelman, and we were talking about, you know, we may not go into production until January depending on whether or not there’s a second wave.”
So, it depends on the shooting schedule. However, it is final that it will come on NBC. The question is, when?
The Plot of This Is Us Season 5
This Is Us Season 4 ended with Kevin and Randall falling out, Rebecca agreeing to undergo Alzheimer’s medical trial, Kevin comes to know that Madison is pregnant with twins and Kate and Toby announce that they will adopt.
In This Is Us Season 5, the makers have announced that Season 5 will be a season of new beginnings. We will see the excavation of Randall’s past. The makers also said that Jack’s story would be shortened, and other characters will be given more space in this season. In season 4, we see that Nicky is wearing a wedding band. We will also see who Nicky is married to. Will Kevin and Randall make up? What will be Rebecca’s experience in her trial? Will Kate and Toby split up?
