Despite the break in action due to the SOTU address, there appears to be good news ahead for This Is Us. Show creator Dan Fogelman stated:
“We’ve got multiple seasons mapped out…I think this season has been a lot about redemption, but also a lot of rebirth. Next season is a season (season 4) is a season of new beginnings and restarts.”
The showrunner Isaac Aptaker also shared his vision for the finale saying,
I would hope that it’s elegant…That’s what we’re going for. I would hope that when we reach our ending, people think it’s a really satisfying end place, that makes sense, and it feels like they’ve watched something that is a complete piece of work because that’s really how we’re trying to plan it. Almost like you would a book, or a super-long movie. We’ve had this end in mind for a long time, so we’re able to plan for it, and try to make it feel like it’s a whole, as opposed to a series that’s going to go endlessly.”
He added further hints that the show isn’t going away anytime soon stating they have plans for a finale “about three seasons in the future”.
