The tragic undertones that
This Is Us
left behind were revived by the show’s creator,
, after the series finale aired on
Since he knew exactly where the series would go from beginning to end and could plan ahead, Fogelman revealed that numerous sequences from the final season were really shot years ago.
Fogelman stated to
The Hollywood Reporter
that the show’s two timelines allowed him to have a clear vision for the series’ conclusion ever since it debuted on television in 2006.
When the show was renewed for more seasons, he made the decision to film the Pearson kids before the actors portraying them got older.
Kevin, Kate, and Randall Pearson,
the three children who played the triplets, were growing up quickly, so Fogelman said he wanted to get some footage of them while they were still little.
In-depth planning has been a component of the production of This Is Us from the beginning.
According to Fogelman in an interview with Variety, the finale’s concept hasn’t changed much since the show’s premiere.
The heartwarming and heartfelt story of a set of triplets, their struggles, and their parents is shown in the television series This Is Us.
Mandy Moore, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Chris Sullivan, Susan Kelechi Watson, and Sterling K. Brown
are among the cast members.
The last season is jam-packed with tales from the past and the present, including tales involving the off-camera cast members’ offspring and great-grandchildren.
