This Is Us will air its finale on May 24th, and series creator Dan Fogelman is not against revisiting the Pearson family at a later date. In fact, he has one possible film idea that NBC would totally stand behind.
Starring Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson, Chris Sullivan, Jon Huertas, Niles Fitch, Logan Shroyer, Hannah Zeile, Mackenzie Hancsicsak, Parker Bates, Lonnie Chavis, Eris Baker, and Faithe Herman, the series follows the Pearson family with journeys between past, present, and future.
“I don’t know what that [movie] would be. By the end of this season, I think we’ll have told the complete story, so I’m not sure it’s like if you’re doing the movie of like what would have happened if Jack survived the fire or something.”
Several members of the cast joined Fogelman on the panel and were all enthusiastic about the idea of revisiting their characters. “The President of NBC is literally texting me right now, ‘Yes to the movie!’” Fogelman said.
The final episodes of This Is Us resume on February 22nd, after the conclusion of the Winter Olympics.
What do you think? Are you sad to see This Is Us end? Would you want to see a film showing an alternate timeline for Jack and his family?
