This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman joined the cast for an NBC Scripted Press Day and said they had some expected news to share: The air date for the series finale.


This Is Us Season Finale will air on May 24, 2022.

The cast assured those tuning in that “it’s gonna deliver.”


And honestly, I hope it does because I am hoping the show will wrap up and provide us with so many unanswered questions…

What happened with Kate and Toby?

Who is Kate marrying at the end of Season 5?

Who does Kevin ultimately end up with?

Does Miguel and Rebecca make it to the end?
