This Is Us isn’t on tonight with season 6 episode 6 because NBC is currently airing the 2022 Winter Olympics. According to the network’s schedule, the show’s usual time slot will be filled with men’s and women’s snowboarding as well as alpine skiing. But don’t fret.

Prior to the This Is Us Season 6 premiere, the show’s team suggested that there will be limited interruptions throughout the final season. Now, the NBC series is in its first two-week hiatus, and it looks like there will only be one more break until the series finale

When speaking with Variety, NBC’s head of scheduling, Steve Kern, confirmed that the sixth and final season of This Is Us will go on a week-long break for resident Joe Biden’s “State of the Union” address on March 1. Then the show will come back with the last episodes starting on March 8.

This Is Us isn’t on tonight, but the NBC drama has already dropped a few clues about what happens next in season 6 episode 6. In the promo trailer for “Our Little Island Girl: Part Two,” Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and her new beau, Matt (Matt Corboy), have an awkward run-in with Kevin (Logan Shroyer) and Sophie (Amanda Leighton). 

Meanwhile, adult Kevin (Justin Hartley) and Madison (Caitlin Thompson) disagree when it comes to Thanksgiving plans in the present day. Then Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) feels the weight of the world as she must choose the “right dancers” for her academy. Meanwhile, Watson – who co-wrote the Feb. 22 episode – told TVLine that Beth doesn’t dance in the episode. But rather, she passes the torch.

“There’s some dancers in the episode, yeah, and I’m sort of passing the torch along. I do one little turn,” Watson said.
