This Is Us Season 6 Release Date And Plot
Season 6 of This Is Us arrived on NBC mid-season on Tuesday, January 4, 2022.
The new season is set to conclude the story of the Pearson family, as Jack and Rebecca continue to raise their children, the Big Three, in the 1980s, while Pearson’s adult offspring have their own complex lives in the present.
After the shock flash-forward scene at the end of Season 5, the landscape of This Is Us is set to change significantly over the next few episodes as relationships grow and sour.
As the end of the season neared, fans had to bid farewell to some of the show’s most cherished characters as the march of time finally catches up to the Pearsons.
Why This Is Us Season 7 Won’t Happen
This Is Us will not be returning for season 7 as the show’s creators always planned to have a six-season run.
When This Is Us was renewed for seasons 4, 5, and 6 in 2019, creator Dan Fogelman hinted that season 6 would be the last episode, telling The Hollywood Reporter, “I think we’re about halfway through. from the television series. will go.
In 2021, after the end of season 5, it was officially announced that season 6 would be the last season, to which Fogelman tweeted: “Whoever casually said for the first time ‘All good things must end “Never had to end their Favorite Thing. While sad to only have one season left, we are also grateful to NBC for allowing us to finish the series as and when we always planned. We will work hard to stick the landing. #It’s us”
So while This Is Us fans will no doubt be disappointed to see the series come to an end, they can take solace in the fact that the series should enjoy a satisfying conclusion rather than ending abruptly after being canceled or die out after being renewed for one season as many.
Fans can’t believe This Is Us is ending
Although it’s been on the cards for a while, many This Is Us fans still can’t believe the series is ending, with many offering their thoughts on social media.

While another added: “I’m actually in denial that This Is Us is ending as I watched it live from the pilot, these people are my family, I’m not ready to lose them.”
And finally, this fan noted how the title of the show should change once it’s over: “I can’t believe This is Us is ending after this season. It’s going to be That Was Us soon.
