This series renewal will take the addictive show to the year 2022, resulting in six seasons of addictive drama.
“In a television landscape with nearly 500 original scripted series, there are very few, if any, that have the critical and cultural impact of This Is Us and we couldn’t be more proud to bring fans three more seasons of a show that so well represents the NBC brand,” said Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Presidents of Scripted Programming for NBC Entertainment, in a statement reported by People magazine.
When visiting the set of Ellen earlier this year, Milo Ventimiglia, who plays Jack Pearson, revealed that the writers had an idea of how they wanted to end the show.
“The show could have a huge spike in season six and everybody wants more beyond that. But I think creatively they have an idea of what they’d like to do to kind of wrap it up in this nice story. At least the fans know they’re going to get three more seasons, which is nice to commit a little more,” Ventimiglia told DeGeneres. “It’s not like, will it be on, won’t it be on? Beyond that, could be there will be more, I don’t know.”
Neither do we.
