The Final Chapter is upon us. Here's how to prepare for the series finale. 

This Is Us 610 Caron Jaden Coleman Mandy Moore

Fans have known for a while now that This Is Us Season 6 will be its last. It's been an emotional journey these past six years, as we've watched the Pearson family experience hardships, joy, loss—and evolve. "I don’t think that I’m emotionally ready to accept that this is the end. I know we have 18 more episodes," Mandy Moore (Rebecca) told TODAY in May 2021, after it was announced Season 6 would be the show's last. "This is the best job I’ve ever had, and the fact that I won’t be with this work family anymore, it’s devastating. It’s heartbreaking for us, too.”

And Milo Ventimiglia (Jack) echoed a similar sentiment. "I've got a lot of resolve about showing up to work every day, spending time with the crew. We got a great crew," he said on Late Night With Seth Meyers. "But I'm sure those last moments, everyone's going to be in tears... I think we've established the audience will be crying, but us in production, I have a feeling that we'll be emotional. We'll have a hard time letting go."

Viewers will have a hard time letting go, too—and they'll have to let go soon. The This Is Us series finale is just around the corner.  Here's what you need to know. 

When is the This Is Us finale? 

Tuesday, May 24th at 9 p.m. ET on NBC. On how the show will endSusan Kelechi Watson (Beth) said at a Television Critics' Association event, "We get to actually maintain the integrity of what we came to [do]. We get to stick to that road map and exit while it's still good. It feels like we get to walk away and be really proud of something that feels like it's still resonating." 

How many episodes are in This Is Us Season 6?
