The Big Three is preparing for Season 5! Although the season won’t air till the fall of 2020. Fans are already hoping to see what Randall, Kate, Kevin, and the rest of the team are going to be up to. Here’s everything you need to know about what we perceive about the second to last season of This Is Us.
When is This Is Us season 5 airing?
The last four seasons have been scheduled for late September premieres, so if we predict it right, it’ll return on Tuesday, September 22, 2020, at 9 p.m. EST. We’re also expecting that Season 4 will begin with The Big Three’s birthday, so Season 5 will likely follow suit.
How to watch This Is Us season 5?
In case you didn’t catch the first airing, you can probably watch upcoming episodes via NBC’s on-demand feature 24 hours after they air.
What to expect in the cast of This Is Us season 5?
The cast is expanding for Season 4, so Season 5 will be showing familiar faces and some exciting newcomers. The talented actress — Sterling K. Brown (Randall), Susan Kelechi Watson (Beth), Justin Hartley (Kevin), Chrissy Metz (Kate), Chris Sullivan (Toby), Milo Ventimiglia (Jack), and Mandy Moore (Rebecca) — are going to be on screen.
In the meantime, we’ll keep dropping for hints of actors joining the cast.
Season 5 is the second to last season of the show.
We hate to see it go, but all good things must come to an end. We know this as showrunner Isaac Aptaker previously mentioned that the team was working on “three seasons in the future” while Season 3 was airing.
“I hope that when we reach the ending, people think it’s a satisfying end that makes sense, and it feels like they’ve watched something that is a complete piece of work as that’s really how we’re trying to plan it,” Aptaker shared in the same interview. “We’ve had the end in mind for a long time, so we’re able to plan for it and make it feel like it’s a whole, as opposed to a series that’s going to go endlessly.”
What lies for Jack’s character in future seasons?
As we all love Milo, showrunners have declared that it’s time to narrow in on the other characters’ storylines. In an interview, Dan Fogelman talked about Jack’s story in season 3.
“We are moving towards new chapters … with The Big Three,” he said about Season 4. “Some of the mysterious or dramatic pulls of the series might start falling into the hands of some of our other characters.”
Is he mentioning about Kate and Toby? Beth and Randall? Kevin? Rebecca? We’ll just have to wait and watch for it. Until then, check back for the latest on This Is Us season 5!
