“This Is Us” will be returning with season 5 and 6 on NBC
NBC announced the pick up of multi-generation, tear-jerking family drama “This Is Us” through season 6. The decision initially came after the third season of the show garnered an impressive audience with 8.32 million viewers and remained as one of the network’s highest-rated TV shows. Now that season 4 has also ended with an excellent rating of 1.3 in the adults 18-49 demographic, there’s no reason to believe that the fans won’t have the 2021-22 season.
“This is Us” season 5 begins Tuesday October 27th with a two-hour premiere
The release date will be October 27th (initially announced November 10th, 2020, NBC has announced on 8/28). “This Is Us” is a roller-coaster ride filled with twists, tears, laughter, and a lot of love. The story revolves around the Pearson family and the unique struggles of each of its members. Three siblings Kevin, Kate, and Randall, try to gear their life towards happiness after facing a tragedy in the past. The show takes us through their highs and lows, but eventually, love is what unites them.
The new season 5 will be about new beginnings… and COVID
The first three seasons heavily focused on the patriarch of the family, Jack and his childhood struggles. However, that changed in season 4 and we got to know more about Rebecca’s past. While talking about season 5, the show’s writer Dan Fogelman said that the theme this time around will be new beginnings and uplifting moments. The audience can expect some challenges chucked their favorite family’s way, and some mysteries revealed.
Additionally, This is Us creator Dan Fogelman shared on Twitter in a response to a fan question “Yes on Covid. We’ve decided to attack things head on. Very proud of @ThisIsUsWriters”.

About this show:
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.
