However, situations are different this time. So, the celebration marked the beginning of the journey for Season 6 and the show for one last time.

This Is Us Season 6: What To Expect?
Creator Dan Fogelman always knew he was up for making six seasons of This is Us; no less, no more. Season 6 will be the last of the series, as the show bids farewell to the renowned stars and the dedicated fans during the final season. According to Fogelman, the series finale is planned to be “quiet and normal.” He always aimed to create something fulfilling and warm, leaving sadness behind a typical family like This is Us. The creator always intended to make the viewers want to go out, have babies, call their parents or siblings by getting inspired by the show. He expressed that the final season will be about the same emotions too.
Last season, fans saw Kevin and Madison breaking up just before marriage. Also, Rebecca realized that she does not have much time left after her Alzheimer’s diagnosis. Now, in Season 6, we expect to see Toby and Kate’s relationship fall apart due to the communication gap which has always prevailed between them. Moreover, it will be thrilling to see how Rebecca spends her limited days and how her relationship with Miguel turns out.
Earlier in June 2021, Susan Kelechi Watson teased the ending of the show. She shared that the show will start with Rebecca and Jack. And Watson added that it is supposed to end with Rebecca. She also acknowledged that Dan has always had the ending in mind since season 1.
Season 6: Cast Returning
The cast expected for Season 6 will be pretty similar to the previous season. The family drama will star Milo Ventimiglia as Jack Pearson, Sterling K. Brown as Randall Pearson, and Mandy Moore as Rebecca Pearson. In addition, Chrissy Metz as Kate Pearson, Justin Hartley as Kevin Pearson, and Jon Huertas as Miguel Rivas are expected to join the star cast for Season 6.
This Is Us Season 6: Release Date

Creator Dan Fogelman replied to a fan on Twitter, revealing the expected premiere date to be around January next year. However, NBC has not announced an official release date yet. So, when the show returns for its final season, the fans will be expecting a conclusive end to This is Us.
