In May 2019, NBC gave "This Is Us" a three-season renewal (for Season 4, 5 and 6). Season 5 started in October 2020 for the 2020-2021 year, and season 6 is set to be the show's last season in 2021-2022.
"This is us" showcases the lives of a family with three children, in several different time frames. Kevin, Kate and Randall, the three siblings, go through their own unique challenges at different intervals of life, as they try to find happiness and get over a tragedy in their past. The series takes place mostly in the present, but uses episodes from the past and flashbacks to show what happened with the family in the past. Over its first few seasons, the show has consistently remained a fan favorite and a top 20 TV series, with TVscorecards scores consistently above 90%, a level of performance that is rarely sustained.
