This Is Us season 5 will be available sooner as expected, and this was revealed by the cast and show creator Dan Fogelman. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the cast and crew have returned to the set and started filming.
The first day of production for This Is Us season 5 was shared on social media. Photos posted showed the two main cast members – Mandy Moore (Rebecca) and Milo Ventimiglia (Jack), who both look happy to be back.
Filming resumes and new premiere date
This highly-anticipated drama was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, and everyone is hoping they will be able to work smoothly now.
It was reported that the first day of filming was held at Paramount Studios and Folgelman posted few photos. “A 2020 television sex scene,” he tweeted. “We’re back. #ThisIsUs.”
Since the production was delayed, rather than moving the release date later, it was even moved to an earlier schedule.
Hours after the show creator shared the update about filming, NBC announced that This Is Us season 5 will premiere on Oct. 27. Initially, the drama was to be released on Nov. 10.
Fans will be treated to a two-hour drama premiere special. Chrissy Metz also informed fans about the earlier date via Twitter.
“What’s better than the Pearsons coming back in November?” she wrote. “The Pearsons coming back in OCTOBER! We’re officially filming season 5 and will see you on 10/27 for our 2-hour season premiere! #ThisIsUs @NBCThisIsUs.”
What to expect in “This Is Us” season 5
This Is Us season 5 will tackle some of the current issues like the Black Lives Matter and the COVID-19.
Sterling K. Brown, who acts as Randall Pearson in the drama, said as a black man raised in the Pearson family, there is “absolutely huge” importance to touch on the Black Lives Matter movement on TV.
“It was as huge from a writer’s perspective as it was from mine,” he told People. “I think Randall offers such a unique perspective. Being a Black man raised in a white family, there’s a very specific prism through which he sees the world, and I think the writers have captured it brilliantly.”
Dand Fogelman also revealed This Is Us season 5 will show how families face the pandemic head-on.
Meanwhile, the show earned nominations at the recent 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards, including the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. Sterling Brown failed to win in the lead actor, but Ron Cephas Jones won in the Best Guest Actor category.
