One of my favorite shows to watch with my wife is This Is Us. You can find us on the couch every Tuesday night when it's on. I always hate it when the show leaves me in a cliff hanger and have to wait until next week. Well, if you're a fan of the show like me, I've got some bad news for you!
During a recent interview with Deadline,This Is Us Isaac Aptaker and Dan Fogelman who are showrunners opened up about the future. During their interview they were saying the series could end after season 6.
Aptaker said This Is Us does have a finale planned for “about three seasons in the future.”
This might just be a surprise to you, but according to the interview Fogelman had an ending of the show in mind ever since the beginning.
“From day one, Dan came in with his master plan for the big picture stuff of the show and said, ‘I think this is where we end up. I think this is what I know. Let’s figure out the rest together.’ So all of the writers and the actors really know everything,” Aptaker said. “We’re all pretty good at keeping secrets by now, it’s been three years, but it’s a total open book for everyone who works on the show, so there are no secrets from each other.”
We will probably struggle to moment we have to say goodbye to the Pearsons, but the showrunners think that we will all find the series finale “elegant” and “satisfying.”
