NBC announced on Wednesday, 23rd September that ‘This is Us’ season 5 will return to air two weeks
earlier than planned. The multigenerational family drama was scheduled to unveil its two-hour season
premiere on 10th November 2020, but now it will see the light of day on October 27th, from 9 to 11 pm
a long 4-year journey
Since the last 4 years, the show’s new seasons typically premiere in late September, but Hollywood’s
shutdown delayed production, as it did for most series. The writers of the show have been working
remotely on season 5 for months, and This is Us will be beginning production on these new episodes this
‘This is Us’ is one of the shows that has been a mainstay on NBC. It premiered in September 2016 and
ultimately got the attention of many people who seek to watch family drama television shows. If you’ve
seen the show, we all know how each season has its new problems to be solved.
We’ve come a long way from season 1 when Jack and Rebecca were there to give an introduction to
their family to season 4, in which a lot of fights and arguments took place. This is Us is a multi-
generational show in which the present, the future, and the back story combine to move the story
forward. This is one of the reasons for the big cast of the show. As there are many young actors, the
director has spent a lot of time finding the perfect actors for the roles.
Does Chrissy Metz’s role end?
The cast for season 5 will be the same, Sterling K. Brown will be playing Randall, Chrissy Metz as Kate,
and Justin Hartley will be playing Kevin Pearson. However, as Metz’s character was seen separated from
the family in season 4, she might not take part for the next season to come.
After the ending of season four last year, the show has left many unanswered questions for the fans.
Kevin and Randall were seen fighting, Rebecca was on her deathbed, Kate got separated from her
husband, Toby Damon. Many things are to be solved in the upcoming season.
director on the upcoming season
In an interview by Entertainment Weekly on 24th September, the creator of the show Dan Fogelman
said “We have a carefully crafted plan through six seasons of the television show that hundreds of crew
members have now devoted for four-plus years of their lives executing”.
When asked further about the production, he continues “and we’re going to execute that plan, no
matter what’s happening in the world. The things that are happening in the world may shift the details
of how things happen, but the big moves continue to happen”.
In 2018, Hulu claimed the rights to the show’s previous seasons and the further seasons that were to
come. The first episode will air on Hulu. As always, the first episode will be a two-hour long episode. The
season is also said to feature the Black Rights Movement that occurred earlier this year.
