This Is Us is a television drama series created by Dan Fogelman that debuted on September 20, 2016. This series has been running for quite some time.
NBC renewed the series for three more seasons in May 2019. The fifth season premiered on October 27, 2020. On January 4, the sixth season premiered early this year.
With six seasons completed, it was speculated that the series would conclude with season six. However, fans are eager to know about This Is Us Season 7 and whether the next chapter is renewed or not.
Here are some of the details we know about This Is Us Season 7.
Will there be Season 7 of This is Us?
As of now, This Is Us Season 7 stands canceled. Despite rumors of a new season, the creators have stated that Season 6 is the final season.
If fans have a high demand and the series receives a good viewership, the series may continue with another season in the franchise.
What is the potential release date for This is Us Season 7?
Since This Is Us Season 7 is canceled, there is, of course, no release date. Hence, we won’t do any guesswork too. But don’t get disappointed, as Season 6 is still streaming and still has a lot to offer.

This Is Us Season 6 Episodes
This Is Us Season 6 reportedly consists of 18 episodes, the typical pattern that the series follows.
This Is Us Plot
The show focuses on the lives of three siblings, Kevin, Kate, and Randall (called the “Big Three”), and their parents, Jack and Rebecca Pearson.
It takes place primarily in the present moment and employs flashbacks to depict the family’s history. The majority of episodes have a plotline set in the present and a plotline set in the past.
On the other hand, some episodes are placed in a single time or employ multiple flashbacks.
Flashbacks frequently focus on Jack and Rebecca, 1980, both before and after the birth of their babies, or on the family when the Big Three are children or adolescents. These scenes are set in Pittsburgh, where the Big Three and their parents were born and raised.
The show also employs flashforwards to depict a later time when Randall’s daughter Tess is an adult, and an elderly Rebecca is dying.

A Million Little Things
If you are still looking for some hints for the renewal of the series, it all depends on the network’s and the creators’ decision as to whether there is any more story to tell or if there is a massive audience demand, but that’s unlikely since it seems makers have already made up their minds to end the series and had tagged Season 6 as The Final Chapter.
If more demand pours in, we might be treated with a reunion episode or a spin-off, but these are all speculations, and we don’t really know what is the future of the series, if at all.
Until then, fans can enjoy This Is Us Season 6, which is heading towards its grand finale, if we may say so.
