Dan Fogelman, the creator of “This Is Us,” He’d ‘Take Back’ the Pivotal TV Moment Until Revealed
This Is Us has had plenty of tear-jerking, enigmatic, and joy-filled moments over the course of five seasons. If writer Dan Fogelman had his way, he’d go back in time and fix one thing about a season 2 storyline involving Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia). Here’s what he had to say on why it’s one of his greatest regrets from his time on This Is Us.
Dan Fogelman had a premonition of how ‘This Is Us’ will conclude.
Fans of NBC’s ‘This Is Us’ have discovered a major plot contradiction from the 2018 season.
With just one season left, you’d think Fogelman knew what he was doing from the beginning. That’s because he was the one who did it. This Is Us has captivated audiences since its debut in 2016, thanks to its time-jumping, family-centric dynamics.
While Fogelman has other credits, none have come close to the success of This Is Us. As a result, the pressure to “stick the landing,” as he tweeted, is palpable. Fans have spent a lot of time in the Pearson family and want to see things come to a satisfying conclusion.
Fogelman is well aware of this. In 2020, he said that he has always known how it will end, at least in broad terms.
He told The Los Angeles Times, “We’ve always known the strategy for the show because we’re not going 15 seasons.” “You’re only playing with time whether you know where you’re going.” It feels like a page-turner because we’re telling the story about a family over the course of 80 years by the time we’re done. As a result, all of our families will seem to be very fascinating in that regard.”
Season 3 was the first time Fogelman stated that the show was “in the middle.” With so many threads to tie up, we can only hope he gets there by the end of season 6. However, he does have one disappointment, which dates back to Season 2.
On the one thing he’d improve on ‘This Is Us,’ Fogelman says
— From the TV show This Is Us… This is a condensed version of the plot. I hope you found it entertaining.
