‘This Is Us’ posts first photos from final season
“This Is Us” will begin recounting the final chapter in the Pearson family story on January 4 – and we have some glimpses of the season one episode, titled “The Challenger”.
The NBC hit drama will kick off its sixth and final season with a 41st anniversary celebration of the Big Three: Siblings Kate (Chrissy Metz), Kevin (Justin Hartley) and Randall (Sterling K. Brown).
A photo suggests that the festivities will take place virtually. Randall and his wife, Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson), and their three daughters, played by Lyric Ross, Faithe Herman and Eris Baker, sit in front of an open laptop and a three-tier birthday cake.
Another photo shows Kate smiling while spending time with her music teacher boss Phillip (Chris Geere). A glimpse into the future of the season five finale has already let viewers know that Kate will be parting ways with husband Toby (Chris Sullivan) this season and bonding with Phillip again.
In a separate photo, Kevin looks a little uncertain after his breakup with his fiancee Madison. But what is it in the background? A studio soundstage. Does Kevin have a new acting job?
A cute flashback photo reminds viewers how Pearson’s story began. It shows Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) sitting at their kitchen table with the three younger ones, played by Isabella Rose Landau, Kaz Womack and Ca’Ron Jaden Coleman.
In a final photo of the couple, who never had the chance to grow old together, Rebecca is seen smiling blissfully at Jack as he kisses her in their kitchen.
The photo of the embrace looks like the one that shows designer Dan Fogelman tweeted in early September, the first day of filming for season six. “Last first day. Feeling feelings,” he captioned the photo.
As for what will happen in the final season of the time jump show – well, we know to expect a lot of tears, as always. Fogelman tweeted on November 12 that filming the final chapter of The Pearsons had moved him.
“I’m very excited. I’m also incredibly sad. We’re pretty involved and season six is upsetting me,” he said. wrote.
The final season of “This Is Us” will air at 9 p.m. ET / PT on Tuesday, January 4 on NBC.
