‘This Is Us’ is a comedy-drama romantic series premiering in NBC. Dan Fogelman creates the drama family tragedy.
This Is Us: Plot
The story is a beautiful family romance drama to watch. It is about three siblings Kevin, Kate and Randall.
The three goes through very different personal struggles during different phases of their lives; at the same time, they try to find happiness and get over a tragedy that happened in the past.
Season 5: Release Date
The show initially launched on 20 September 2016. The series completed its fourth season on 24 March 2020 with eighteen episodes.
The finale episode was a thriller, and everyone’s looking forward for the fifth season. The good news is that NBC has already planned six seasons for This Is Us. Hence obviously we can expect the fifth season.
All the four seasons of This Is Us were released in September every year. Hence we can imagine the fifth season to also air in September 2021. But that would have been the case if the world was not experiencing a global pandemic. We should note that the finale episode of the fourth season was shot right before they shut down production.
“We were just fortunate were the last day of our finale was right before we all realised how serious this was and how we all had to start staying home,” Aptaker said. “So we were able to get our last day in just under the wire. Now we are on hiatus for the season.”
That means filming for the fifth season have not begun, and we shouldn’t expect that it will start soon. The production for season 5 was planned to begin in the summer of 2020. That as we all know, is not possible.
Issac Aptaker added, “we’re all hoping that this gets resolved as quickly as possible and everyone’s is so eager to go back to work. We’re scheduled to come back in the summer, so we have some time, and we’re hoping we can stay on schedule.”
Nevertheless, all we can do now is hope for everyone in the world to get better soon.
And with that, our fourth season comes to an end.
It has been a joy spending this time with you all. Thank you for being part of our family.
We can’t wait to share more of the Pearsons with you in SEASON FIVE!
Stay safe and see you soon. #ThisIsUs

This Is Us Season 5: Show Creator Fogelman Teases The New Season
‘This Is Us’ is going to have a fifth season. The finale of season 4 ended with the Pearson family getting together for baby Jack’s birthday. Showrunner Fogelman is most excited for the upcoming season. He hinted us that the new season would embark on a new journey and something big. This is what Fogelman had to say about the next season.
“We have a big storyline planned for Mandy in the upcoming season in the present day as an older woman and her past timelines. Particularly, when we land in St. Louis with her, kind of exploring with Miguel here is the opportunity where we’re going to be bringing them in a location together and undergo this treatment that they didn’t necessarily plan on trying.”
“The new season will also allow us to get towards, which has always been the plan in the back part of our series, further understanding how their relationship bloomed then stalled then bloomed again and getting inside their lives”.
“I’m very excited about, especially with where the world is right now, the uplift, and I would call it almost rebirth, that comes next season. Kind of rebirth and a lot of new beginnings, particularly for birth and rebirth would be a big thematic part of next season,” he teased.
