If this isn’t a kleenex alert, I don’t know what is! It was just announced that This Is Us, one of the BEST shows in the past decade, maybe even decades, will end after 6 seasons!
I realize we are only on Season 3, and that gives us 3 good years, but I can already tell you I’M NOT READY!
I still have so many questions, and I don’t think 3 more seasons is enough time to answer all of them!
In a new interview with Deadline, This Is Us showrunners Isaac Aptaker and Dan Fogelman opened up about the future of the show, and that they’ve had the ending in mind at season 6 since it started…
“From day one, Dan came in with his master plan for the big picture stuff of the show and said, ‘I think this is where we end up. I think this is what I know. Let’s figure out the rest together.’ So all of the writers and the actors really know everything…We’ve had this end in mind for a long time, so we’re able to plan for it, and try to make it feel like it’s a whole, as opposed to a series that’s going to go endlessly.”
How could they do this to us???
