‘This Is Us’: 7 Questions We Need Answered When Season 5 Returns in 2021
[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for Season 5, Episode 4 of This Is Us, “Honestly.”]
While it feels as though This Is Us has only just returned for Season 5, the NBC drama is taking a break to catch up with itself (due to COVID-related production delays), which is something most people can relate to.
Sadly, this means fans won’t learn more about the Pearsons until the fifth episode arrives January 5. But a preview of the next episode does offer a glimpse at what fans can expect.
Among the woes ahead are a rough patch for parents-to-be Kevin (Justin Hartley) and Madison (Caitlin Thompson), as well as a flashback reunion between Kate (Hannah Zeile) and her abusive ex, Marc (Austin Abrams).
“A lot of answers when we return. Promise. The @ThisIsUsWriters are on fire and we’re making them as fast (and safely) as humanly possible! I’m very excited about all that comes next,” series creator Dan Fogelman reassured via Twitter.
Next year feels a long way away (it isn’t), so in the meantime we break down some of the major questions we’re counting on being answered when This Is Us Season 5 continues.
