After a lengthier than usual hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, This Is Us is officially back for Season 5. On Tuesday night, the NBC series' newest season premiered with two hours full of updates about the Pearson family. Since it has been some time since fans could catch up on the series, they are, understandably, elated that the show is finally back on.
Unlike many other television shows, Season 4 of This Is Us, the season finale of which aired in March, was not impacted by the pandemic as they were able to film the season in its entirety. The show reportedly began production on Season 5 in September. In advance of the show's premiere, series creator Dan Fogelman told The Hollywood Reporter that he's "very excited about — especially with where the world is right now — the uplift and I would call it almost a rebirth that comes next season." He also shared that there will be "a lot of new beginnings" in Season 5 and that there will be "something big" that happens in the season premiere.
Naturally, fans are experiencing all of the "feels" upon the return of This Is Us. Many of the show's viewers are particularly excited to see the Pearson family back in action for the first time in months.prevnext
