The final chapter of This Is Us is upon us. The sixth and final season premieres at the top of the new year. It already seems like it will be the most emotional season of the show yet, as we follow Rebecca's (Mandy Moore) battle with Alzheimer's. We'll see how the Pearsons deal with their mother being unable to remember vital parts of their history while also trying to make new memories and forge new paths.
The much-loved show has resonated with audiences because of their deep connection with the Pearson family, whether it's the ultimate dad, Jack (Milo Ventimiglia); the mom who tries her best, Rebecca; or the Big 3 — Randall (Sterling K. Brown), Kevin (Justin Hartley), and Kate (Chrissy Metz) — and their various life paths. The show has brought people together, usually through their tears, as the Pearsons have fought, reunited, and found their purpose.
Get the tissues ready! The full-length trailer for This Is Us Season 6 kicks off by taking fans on a trip down memory lane as Rebecca ruminates on what her last memory might be before "the candle goes out." It's a parade of This Is Us' most emotional moments over the past five years before giving us a glimpse of what's ahead in the final season. Madison opens the door for a mystery person, Randall and Beth remain couple goals, Phillip has obvious hearts in his eyes for Kate, and Deja and Malik continue to have one of the most heartwarming romances on the series.
This Is Us will return for the sixth and final season on Tuesday, Jan. 4 at 9/8c. The final season will air mostly uninterrupted except for a brief hiatus in February as NBC hosts the 2022 Winter Olympics.
All of the Pearsons will be back including Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Justin Hartley, and Chrissy Metz. Series regulars Susan Kelechi Watson, Chris Sullivan, and Jon Huertas are also on the docket to return, along with Season 5 guest star Chris Geere. Caitlin Thompson returns as Madison with Lyric Ross and Asante Blackk back as Deja and Malik, respectively.
Even though the final season is still in production, we know that pieces of the series finale have already been shot and the entire cast knows how the series is going to end.
The Season 6 premiere will feature a Jack and Rebecca flashback, and judging by the state of Jack's beard in the first-day-on-set pics, it'll take place before the Big 3 are born.
There will be another Beth-centric episode, this time co-written by Kelechi Watson herself. It will be the sixth episode of the season and is titled "Our Little Island Girl: Part Two."
You can watch the previous five seasons of This Is Us on Hulu and select episodes on NBC's streaming service Peacock.
