After another brief hiatus, NBC's This Is Us returns Tuesday, March 5, with an all-new episode titled "Graduates."

Newly released images for the episode tease what's next for the Big Three following their encounter with long-lost uncle Nicky (Griffin Dunne). And if fans remember the previous episode to the recent "Our Little Island Girl" installment revolving around Beth's (Susan Kelechi Watson) backstory, they'll remember the major cliffhanger for Kevin (Justin Hartley).

The actor spoke out on Thursday's 'Ellen' after producers said the NBC series will end after its sixth season.

After being sober for so long, the actor-turned-family historian looked to booze in the midst of his push-back from Nicky over seeking help. According to the "Graduates" logline, "Kevin keeps a secret from Zoe (Melanie Liburd). Randall (Sterling K. Brown) gets unexpected news about Deja (Lyric Ross). In the past, the Big Three graduate from High School."

Either way, we know some drama is ahead based on the harrowing 30-second teaser (below). Until March 5 arrives, scroll through the images above for your sneak peek at the Pearsons' next steps.
