This Is Us Season 5: Release Date, Renewal, and Expected Story Details
The multiple award-winning NBC comedy-drama series “This Is Us,” developed by Dan Fogelman, premiered on September 20, 2016. Since then, it has been the recipient of many awards, such as the prestigious Golden Globes, the Emmys, the SAGs, and the Critics’ Choice, among many others. The story centers on the Pearson family – Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore), along with their three children – Kevin (Justin Hartley), Kate (Chrissy Metz), and Randall (Sterling K. Brown).
This Is Us specializes in the non-linear storytelling formula with a lot of flashbacks and flash-forwards. The juggling of the past and the present is successfully exploring the dramatic ebb and flow of their familial dynamics. There is also a healthy dose of surprising twists n’ turns and emotional discords mixed in. As a result, This Is Us is the heart-warming and tear-jerker that has kept audiences worldwide spellbound for four seasons.
Season 4 wrapped up with a twist on March 24, 2020, left everyone on the edge of their seats with a lot of unanswered questions, So now the million-dollar question is, will this favorite fan return back for a fifth season?

NBC’s This Is Us Season 5 Expected Story
Hopefully, season 5 of This Is Us will continue to focus on the family’s matriarch, Rebecca Pearson. Since her mental faculties have been on the decline, more flashbacks could have a peek into her life, her family history while also continuing her current life. The present story might also explore how she met and fell in love with Miguel (Jon Huertas).
Show creator Dan Fogelman says more focus will be put on Madison’s doctor Eli Mason, played by his favourite actor Josh Hamilton. Fogelman says more focus will be on “birth and rebirth,” meaning emphasis on new and fresh beginnings while respecting the bygones.
Sterling Brown, who plays Randall, is warning the audience to brace for a surprise in the Season 5 premiere. Jack will take a backseat in the story, while more will be explored on the sibling-rivalry between Kevin and Randall.
