The iconic show This Is Us has brought laughter (and tears, of course) to viewers since 2016. The show is currently in the midst of its third season, but according to NBC, This Is Us could be ending sooner than you think. Don't fret though - there's still plenty more in store for you to enjoy.
In a recent interview, showrunners Issac Aptaker and Dan Fogelman opened up about the series, admitting that the finale has already been written, but fans can expect about three more seasons until we say goodbye to the Pearson family forever.
This Is Us has exceptionally high ratings, so viewers need not worry about an abrupt cancellation. In fact, the series ending is very deliberate and will be done in such a way that provides audiences with all the answers and insight they need on characters and the storyline.
"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. 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," says Aptaker.
Although this news is upsetting, it's relieving to know that the fate of the Pearson family will be in good hands and that we can expect a well-rounded ending that leaves us feeling totally satisfied with such an amazing show. I'm sure there will be plenty more bouts of laughter and waterworks over the coming seasons, though, so be sure to have tissues ready!
