In an interview with Deadline, This is Us showrunner Dan Fogelman revealed that NBC executives made no secret of their emotion when he revealed the show’s ending to them.
We do not know anything about the final season of This is Us but we can say one thing: it is that it made cry the leaders of the American channel NBC, where the adventures of the Pearson family have been broadcast for almost 6 years.
This is what showrunner Dan Fogelman revealed in this interview with Deadline, where he explains that he presented his season plan via Zoom: “People were crying so much that I wondered if I should continue or not. The cameras were off, I thought I lost them“.
The showrunner himself made no secret of his emotion when he put this season 6 on paper: “It was the second time that I cried while writing this series “. (The first time when he had to kill CAUTION SPOILER William, Randall’s father).
So what can we expect from This is Us season 6? To revelations of course, especially since the last episode had left several questions unanswered. We will know more about Nicky – Jack’s brother – and his love story.
The fate of Kate (Chrissy Metz) is also uncertain: will she end up with Toby (Chris Sullivan) or will the two lovers go their separate ways? Rebecca’s health will also be at the heart of these new episodes (Mandy Moore).
In any case, Fogleman did not hide his excitement for this end of the series: “You can love it or hate it, but that’s what we planned to do from the start and we executed our idea. I trust and I can’t wait.“.
It will unfortunately be necessary to wait a few more months before finding the Pearsons since the NBC will not launch season 6 in the fall, but for the beginning of the year 2022. In exchange, the channel undertakes to broadcast the 18 episodes without any hiatus.
