The final season premiere of NBC’s amazing family drama aired on Tuesday. This has left the fans of the show for one final emotional run with the Pearson family. It is really hard to believe that our favorite drama is coming to an end. This has made many fans quite emotional.
According to the reports of USA TODAY, Dan Fogelman, the creator of the series, told the news agency, “We always knew that Season 6 would be ambitious in terms of the way it jumps time, even more ambitious than other seasons.” He further said, “Because our audience has been so devoted and because, hopefully, we smartly set up the contained areas where these future timelines live, I think you’re going to have a real sense of resolution and completion for this family. It’s where the mixed-up VHS tapes of this family’s existence will coalesce and speak to one another in completion.”

This is what happened in the season 6 premiere:
It was first seen in the wake of the 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger crash that Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) had a grapple on teaching their small children about grief.
But in the present day, it’s seen that Rebecca’s memory issues are worsening more. On the other hand, Randall (Sterling K. Brown) confronts the man who burglarized his home one year ago. Kevin (Justin Hartley) accepts the offer of joining a reboot of “The Manny.” It is a cheesy sitcom because of which he got famous for the wrong reasons.
The episode further showed the division between Kate (Chrissy Metz) and her husband Toby (Chris Sullivan) and we learned in last season’s flash-forward that they would not be together forever.
As this is the final season, let’s have a look at season 5 too!
Season 5 aimed to focus on how Pearsons lived and dealt with the last seven months of 2020. This especially focussed on the COVID-19 pandemic. Not forgetting, season 5 also focused on police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement. Well, season 4 came to an end in March 2020 with an episode filmed before the pandemic hit.
Season 5 also showcased many last-minute twists which were surely surprising. The Pearsons family faced a reckoning with Alzheimer’s, and adoption match, a miscarriage scare, and many other such twists.
The season finale showcased a big shocker. Madison (Caitlin Thompson) ends everything with Kevin. And that was just before the eleventh hour of their wedding. In addition to this, a time jump into the future. The time jump of 4 years resulted in even more shocking twists.
A New Yorker magazine profile of Randall names him as a “rising star.” A lovelorn Uncle Nicky (Griffin Dunne) seems to have gotten married. And it is also shown Kate preparing for her second wedding to Phillip (Chris Geere). Philip is her work colleague. He once wanted nothing to do with Kate.
Here are the future plots to have a look at!
Season 5 gave a lot of glimpses into the future of many of the Pearsons. The future looks different from the present. It had a lot of twists: Kate and Toby’s marriage seems to get worse. A couple, who are unknown, is fully ready to get married. Kevin gets a responsibility to build up the house that was once promised to Rebecca by Jack. Eventually, the family will join the matriarch, around which appears to be her deathbed.
Regarding this, Fogelman said, “Despite multiple reveals of marriages not quite working out, when you cut to that period in the future, everyone feels good.” Fogelman further said. “On first view, you’re registering the shock of what you’re seeing, but on second view, you can see the feeling and smiles that exist in that moment.”
The show’s theme is “mixing the tragedies and the heartbreak of life, but also the joy and the beauty,” he added. “They have to be able to coexist in order to capture what we’re trying to capture on this show. Marriages don’t always survive. People don’t live forever”
Is there a chance for a spinoff?
The moment of all the Pearson family actors say goodbye to each other and everyone is near. Is it for the good?
Well, this was also answered by Brown on “The Hoda Show.” Brown said, “It’s more like a ta-ta for now. It’s not gone forever because these people are such a part of my life. Whether or not the story gets to continue, you grieve that,” Brown told Hoda Kotb on SiriusXM’s “The Hoda Show.” It was out on Monday.
Brown was also asked if he could just hint towards a potential spinoff. Brown said there’s “always the potential for things.” He said: “We’ll see. You know what I’m saying? Like if, in a few years, they wanna do the ‘Sex and The City’ where they don’t kill Big in the first episode, we’ll see. We’ll see.”
