All good things are worth waiting for—and the countdown for the return of This Is Us luckily just got shorter.
Season five of the beloved NBC drama will kick off two weeks earlier than expected, with a two-hour premiere set for Tuesday, Oct. 27 starting at 9 p.m. ET, according to Variety. The Pearsons were gearing up to originally make a comeback on Nov. 11, however, the schedule has been shifted for viewers desperate to know what’s in store for the Big Three.
Despite setbacks related to the coronavirus pandemic, production for season five was slated to begin Thursday, Sept. 24, according to Deadline. In August, creator Dan Fogelman took to Twitter to reveal that we’ll find the central characters—played by Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Chris Sullivan, Susan Kelechi Watson and Justin Hartley—tackling the coronavirus itself, noting he’s “very proud” of the show’s writers and the plot they’ve created.
While fans know that Fogelman has had the series ending planned for some time, the time jump at the end of season four left viewers with a ton of unanswered questions.
