This Is Us Cast: WE KNOW HOW IT’S ALL GOING TO END
While the This Is Us writers are hard at work on Season 3 of the NBC hit, they’re also getting way ahead of themselves. “We know where [the series] ends,” creator Dan Fogelman, 39, revealed to Life & Style at the This Is Us FYC Screening and Panel in LA on May 29. “We have a pathway that you’ll see on the show. We’ve always had a plan.” And it’s not just the writers who know where it’s going. Cast members Milo Ventimiglia, 40, Mandy Moore, 34, Chrissy Metz, 37, Justin Hartley, 41, Chris Sullivan, 37, and Susan Kelechi Watson, 36, were at the panel event, and when asked if they know how the show ends, Milo blurted out, “Yeah!” And there’s a very good reason the actors know: “I’ve actually already shot pieces of the final scene of the series,” Dan says. “I don’t think the show will ever overstay its welcome.” Plot twists are never in short supply on This Is Us, but the actors don’t get left in the dark. “We get all of the information that we want,” Justin says. “If we ask, [Dan] gives it to us.”
The ultimate ending to This Is Us is no mystery to stars (from left) Chris, Chrissy, Susan, Justin, Mandy and Milo.
