Please note that the following paragraphs contain many spoilers for the This is Us series. You are advised to have seen previous seasons before continuing to read this article.

After a final episode that left many questions unanswered, the Pearson family is finally back on M6. But what does this is us season 5 have in store for you?

This is Us season 4 ended with a massive argument between Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and Kevin (Justin Hartley) over their mother’s health concerns. A conflict which will obviously not be without consequences for the Pearson family.

Despite the violent words they exchanged, will Kevin and Randall be able to reconcile? This is precisely one of the red threads of Season 5. And if the fans were hoping to see the two brothers come closer quickly, unfortunately it will take patience as the dispute between them will last for a long time.

At the end of Season 4, we learned that Madison (Caitlin Thompson) was pregnant with Kevin’s twins. Wishing to follow in the footsteps of his father Jack, Kevin is ready to take his responsibilities as a father and this new role will be central for the character.

While this pregnancy is the result of an adventure, it will nonetheless bring Madison and Kevin closer together. But how do you become parents when you don’t really know each other? This new season will focus on building that relationship.

This new season of This Is Us will be fully anchored in reality by addressing the news head-on. In other words, the world of the Pearson family will bear the brunt of two major events of 2020, starting of course with the global Covid-19 pandemic. Social distancing, masks and confinement will thus be all elements that will change their daily lives.

Beside that, the writers also chose to evoke the death of Georges Flyod, an African-American killed by a police officer. A tragic event that shook America and which will particularly affect Randall.

The death of Georges Flyod will allow us to raise, through Randall, the question of identity and racism. As a result of this tragedy, Pearson’s son will gradually open his eyes to many things in his life. A realization that will push him to question his past, especially in relation to his education as a black man within a white family.

But that’s not all in store for Randall, whose life will be turned upside down by a revelation. The opportunity for him to learn more about his origins and deliver great emotional moments to viewers.

The family of Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Toby (Chris Sullivan) is now known to be set to grow with the arrival of their adopted daughter Hailey. After having gone through a rough patch in their marriage in Season 4, this adoption plan seems to have calmed things down.

And if the steps will take an important place within the couple, the pandemic will not be easy for them and will also come to sow discord.

All the more complicated for Kate, who will also have to face old demons. Indeed, the writers decided to explore more in depth the past of the girl Pearson and more particularly a traumatic event which occurred during her adolescence. Enough to give fans of the program additional keys to understanding what shaped it.

The illness of Rebecca (Mandy Moore) had upset the Big 3 as well as the viewers. Slowly losing her memory, the Pearson matriarch truly began her fight against Alzheimer’s disease. So expect her memory problems to punctuate this new burst of episodes and see how she and her children cope with them. Intense emotional moments ahead.

Fans of This is us can rejoice as Season 5 of the series will explore Nicky’s (Griffin Dunne) past and her relationship with Kevin a little more. In fact, the character will even be entitled to an episode entirely focused on his life.
