Since its debut in 2016, NBC’s This Is Us has captivated millions of viewers each week as it dives into the Pearson family’s inner workings across many generations.
The NBC series, like all good things, must come to an end, and the current sixth season has been announced as the show’s final chapter.
The countdown to the final episode of This Is Us is well started, but when will the season 6 finale be telecast?
Recap And Release Date Of Final Season
Season 6 of This Is Us began on NBC on January 4th, 2022, a day later than normal.
Following the shocking flash-forward at the end of Season 5, the current season has been updating fans on how the Pearson family’s landscape will evolve in the future.
The consequences of Kevin’s break-up with Madison after they called off their wedding on their wedding day was a notable plotline in season 6. While Madison has a new boyfriend, Kevin is at a romantic fork in the road.
In the meantime, even though Randall and Rebecca haven’t always agreed, they’ve been working on strengthening their relationship in season 6.
In recent episodes, Kate and Toby’s relationship has deteriorated as Toby’s professional responsibilities take their toll, leading to Kate discovering a new love.
When Will The Last Episode Of This Is Us Be Released?
The show’s finale date was confirmed by NBC in February, after the show had a temporary pause due to the Winter Olympics.
There are currently no information about the conclusion, but fans will undoubtedly like the fact that there will be no more breaks for the rest of the season.
This is a welcome difference from season 5, when the production schedule was severely hampered by Covid-related delays, resulting in several interruptions throughout the season.
Instead, fans will be able to spend the last few weeks of the season with the Pearson family without interruption.
Fans are in for a crazy trip, based on the reactions of a few cast members, including actress Chrissy Metz, after reading the last episodes of the series.
In The Final Season, How Many Episodes Are There?
Season 6 of This Is Us will include 18 episodes when all is said and done.
Season 5’s 16 chapters made it the show’s smallest season, thus the episode amount is a welcome return to normalcy for fans.
All previous seasons of This Is Us had 18 episodes apiece prior to season 5.
Season 6 also heralds the end of This Is Us, as previously stated, and serves as the show’s final season, as creator Dan Fogelman had always intended.
“I think we’re basically in the midst of where the television series is going to go,” creator Dan Fogelman told The Hollywood Reporter after This Is Us was renewed for seasons 4, 5, and 6 in 2019.
Season 6 of This Is Us is now airing on NBC in the United States on Tuesdays at 9/8c until the final episode airs on May 24th, 2022.
