The multi-award-winning drama series, which knows how to brush the complexity of family ties, was due to return in September, but the pandemic delayed its return.
Fans of This Is Us they can begin to calm your anxiety. One year after the end of the fourth season, the continuation of the tearful drama about the Pearson family already has a release date in Argentina.
Created by Dan Fogelman in 2016, and starring Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley and Susan Kelechi Watson, the fifth installment of the series will debut on Wednesday, October 28 -with a double episode-, through Fox Premium Series.
The previous four seasons are available on Fox Play and Cablevisión Flow.
Winner of a Golden Globe and several Emmy Awards, This Is Us It began in 2016 with the story of the marriage between Jack Pearson (Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Moore), about to have triplets. The death in childbirth of one of the babies is the trigger for them to decide to adopt a child who had been abandoned.
The end of the fourth season left some questions pending, such as the outcome of Rebecca’s illness and the possibility of adoption of a baby by Kate and Toby, among other issues that link the different characters together.
For the fifth season, the scriptwriters plan to include several topics related to the reality of recent months. Among them, the coronavirus pandemic and the “Black Lives Matter”, the protests against racism that recently shook American society.
Fogelman, creator of the series, said in a recent interview: “Considering everything that is happening in our country, we have an opportunity and almost a responsibility to capture what is an unusual historical moment”, referring to all the historical events that are happening in the United States.
In turn, the author assured that they are working on ideas for a sixth season. Fogleman said that in the fifth there will be many stories related to “rebirths and new births.” And they will also continue to deepen and show how some present relationships began in the past, with segments that carry the story several years ago, a hallmark of the program.
The life of the married couple that Jack and Rebecca form was the starting point of the plot to show how the bonds are transformed, over 40 years, in the lives of the couple and their three children, with twists and turns in the time, without leaving aside a bit of nostalgia.
With its innovative and emotional narrative, This Is Us It has transcended the drama of modern television, adding followers eager to explore the complexity of human relationships through the gaze of endearing and real characters.
The series deals with many topics, such as the pain in the face of the death of a loved one, the problem of addictions, complicated and toxic romantic relationships; and delves into other topics that always revolve around love, life and death.
The premiere of the fifth season was scheduled for September. Due to the pandemic, it had to be postponed. However, its protagonists are happy and anxious, because, finally, the continuation of the story will hit the screens this year, despite everything.
