This Is Us to end with season 6 as creator Dan Fogelman ‘finishes plan’

Get ready to say goodbye to the Pearsons.

| Updated:

This Is Us is reportedly ending with season 6 as it will round-off creator Dan Fogleman’s long-standing plan for the Pearson family. 

The melodrama has become a smash-hit across the world, thanks to the complicated lives of Jack and Rebecca Pearson, and ‘triplets’ Randall, Kate and Kevin. 

Each season sees them trying to deal with hardships of life – including death, loss, money troubles and familial bonds.

Milo Ventimiglia and Mandy Moore star as Jack and Rebecca. Sterling K Brown, Chrissy Metz and Justin Hartley play their troubled kids.

Over the course of the show, This Is Us has seen the siblings battle with each other and their own personal demons.

Kate has been seen struggling to conceive a child with husband Toby after battling with her weight.

Meanwhile, Kevin has constant battles with his self-esteem because he feels inadequate next to his brother.

Then there’s adopted son Randall – who is trying to forge his own identity, after growing up the only Black member of an all-white household.
