‘This Is Us’ season 5: Rebecca’s past, Kate’s dark times, Kevin-Randall rift

'This Is Us' season 5: Rebecca's past, Kate's dark times, Kevin-Randall rift

This Is Us comedy-drama series just finished its fourth season. Now fans are clamoring for more especially with all the events from the season finale.

Fortunately, NBC has given This Is Us a double green light and is slated to return for season 5 and 6. There is still no announcement though when the next season will be premiering.

But if the show will follow its usual release schedule, fans can expect for the fifth run to drop sometime in the last week of September.

Details about season 5 are also still under wraps but as always, the Internet universe is packed with predictions and possible plots.

Sibling fight

According to sources, the fifth season may potentially kick off with the Big Three’s 40th birthday. Every season traditionally starts with their birthdays in real-time.

So if season 5 will follow suit, it will show Kevin (Justin Hartley) and Randall (Sterling K. Brown) still on a rift. The two have said harsh words to each other after disagreeing about their mother’s situation.

It was a nasty verbal fight so it may take some time before they will move on from it. Fans are hoping that the brothers will forgive each other.

Hartley spoke out his thoughts: “It might take a bit. But they’re brothers this is not going to divide them until their deathbeds and they don’t speak.”

Rebecca’s past

Another possible plot coming up is a focus on Rebecca’s (Mandy Moore) history. Show creator Dan Fogelman teased that the Pearson matriarch is going to enter a challenging season.

Season 5 is also going to delve more into the relationship between Rebecca and Miguel (Jon Huertas). The two will be exploring St. Louis together during the Alzheimer’s clinical trial.

Fogelman said that they will be unfolding further details of their relationship including the ups and downs, the time it bloomed and the time it also stalled.

There’s also a theory about Rebecca marrying Nicky (Griffin Dunne) which would mean that she and Miguel split. This surfaced after Nicky was seen in season 4 wearing a wedding ring. But it didn’t show who his spouse was.

The dark period of Kate

Chrissy Metz revealed that fans are going to know more about her character Kate in the upcoming season.

“We’re going to find out even more in depth next season as to why she’s decided to, not necessarily use food, but use a substance — hers being food — because she’s been through some things that we haven’t, we don’t know yet,” said Metz.

It’s also noted in the season 4 finale that she was absent in some of the flash-forwards. Does it mean that she’s dead?

Fans will have to stay tuned for This Is Us season 5.
