It is being reported that This Is Us will be coming to its expected end after its already-ordered sixth season. The popular drama was last renewed exactly two years ago, where it received a supersized three-season pickup that takes it to its now-final season.

The show has been a reliable performer for the network over the years, consistently ranking as one of its top-rated scripted series. Today's news doesn't come as a surprise, though, as creator Dan Fogelman has previously spoken about a six-season plan for the show.

Look for the final season of This Is Us to premiere as a midseason entry this time around during the 2021-2022 season.
