What to expect from the last episodes of ‘This Is Us’ Season 6
With seven episodes left in This Is Us Season 6, many fans are hoping for some more beautiful storytelling from the team. Now, it seems like the writers will continue to deliver. When speaking with The Hollywood Reporter ahead of the 100th episode, creator Dan Fogelman teased what to expect for Kate (Chrissy Metz), Toby (Chris Sullivan), Randall (Sterling K. Brown), Rebecca (Mandy Moore), Jack (Milo Ventimiglia), and Kevin (Justin Hartley) in the final episodes.
“The characters are becoming fully realized,” Fogelman said. “Chrissy and Sully are going to a place their characters have simply never gone. I’m doing these two episodes right now where Mandy and Milo are so funny. We have lived in the heaviness of Jack’s death, and it’s returning to that first season where it was just nice to be in that home and with that couple.”
He continued, “Justin’s character coming of age in his 40s is finally happening and it’s so rewarding to watch. And there’s this episode with Sterling and Mandy that is just insanely moving.”
How will ‘This Is Us’ end?
Although the last few episodes of This Is Us Season 6 will be ambitious, it seems the series finale will end on a much simpler note. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Fogelman shared what to expect for the show’s ending.
“I do think after a lot of ambition in the season, I think it will feel really simple,” the series creator said. “I feel like we have the right ending.”
This Is Us Season 6 airs Tuesday nights on NBC.
