‘This Is Us’ Season 6 trailer arrives on Thanksgiving Day

Per E! News, a new teaser for This Is Us Season 6 reveals when fans can watch the full trailer for the final season. While the network provided no other details, we know that the This Is Us Season 6 trailer, titled “The Final Chapter,” will premiere sometime on Thanksgiving Day.

The 15-second teaser kicks off with a scene from season 1 where Kate sings “Time After Time” by Cyndi Lauper. Her cover is heard throughout the video as we get flashes of other scenes.

In one, Rebecca, regarding her Alzheimer’s, reveals, “I’m not worried about the big stuff. It’s the little things I’m not ready to let go of yet.” And then, just when you thought the video couldn’t get more emotional, we see the moment Randall said goodbye to William in season 1. Next, the Big Three is shown reconciling after their group therapy session in season 2.

In the final moments of the teaser, fans finally get their first look at This Is Us Season 6. Jack and Rebecca are holding each other and smiling. The video ends with the news that the trailer is premiering on Thanksgiving Day.

If only 15 seconds of This Is Us footage is enough to wreck us emotionally, we definitely aren’t prepared for the full trailer for season 6 on Thursday, Nov. 25.

The new season premieres in early 2022

Fans only have a few weeks to prepare for the final episodes of their favorite NBC show because This Is Us Season 6 premieres on Jan. 4.

The number of episodes in the final season is unknown, but it’s probably around 16 to 18. And fans should expect fewer breaks between episodes, except when the Winter Olympics air on NBC.

This Is Us Season 6 will take a small break from Feb. 8 to Feb. 22 as the network airs the winter games. Episodes will resume on Feb. 22.

Milo Ventimiglia teases ‘This Is Us’ Season 6

Since This Is Us Season 6 will be the show’s final curtain call, there’s no doubt that its episodes will be as emotional as they have ever been.

Milo Ventimiglia discussed the final season with ON With Mario Lopez. He teased, “When the show first started, we were driving things forward from the past. Now, I think we’re kind of reversing it. We’re going from the future back to toward the present. In the beginning, the big mystery was all about Jack’s death and, of course, how it impacted his family, his children, his wife. But now, what we’ve started to see are kind of the breadcrumb trail of Rebecca’s legacy.”

Ventimiglia added, “I think what we’re going to see this season is more reflecting on Rebecca’s life and Rebecca’s impact to her kids.”

This Is Us Season 6 premieres on Jan. 4 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
