'This Is Us' to Tackle Coronavirus Pandemic 'Head On' in Season Five

The Pearsons will be battling the coronavirus pandemic in the next season of This Is Us.

Creator Dan Fogelman confirmed on Twitter that the upcoming season five of the NBC drama will have a storyline about the ongoing health pandemic.

“Yes on Covid,” Dan tweeted while answering questions from fans. “We’ve decided to attack things head on. Very proud of @ThisIsUsWriters.”

Dan also responded to other fan questions about production, season five’s premiere date, and if the show is still ending the same way he has planned.

“Some vague #ThisIsUs answers (sorry), Not sure yet on production start. Not sure when new eps will air,” Dan added. “Same planned ending. Same route to get there. Hope that’s (somewhat) useful?”

Back in May 2019, it was announced that This Is Us had been picked up through season six, which is when Dan had planned on ending the show.
