In 2019, because the third season was nearing its finale, Fogelman gave an interview with The Hollywood Reporter wherein he known as the Season 3 finale the “midpoint” of the sequence. Fogelman informed THR, “We by no means got down to make a tv sequence that was going to final 18 seasons, and so we’ve a really direct plan. I’ve script pages I’ve written and I am writing that actually are deep, deep, deep into the longer term. Like, we’ve a plan for what we’ll do and I do know what the plan is.”
The 2019 interview with THR is just not the one time Fogelman has made it clear that he has plans for “This Is Us” to be a six-season present. In 2020, he gave an interview to Deadline wherein he said once more his intention for this sequence to finish with Season 6. He mentioned, “That is when the Pearson story will principally come to an in depth.”
