Will [Spoiler] Appear in Season 6 of ‘This Is Us’? The Finale Twist was ‘Part of the Plan All Along,’ according to creator Dan Fogelman.
You’re probably still processing the This Is Us Season 5 finale if you were one of the millions who watched it. The popular drama is famed for its unexpected turns.

Here’s what we’ve learned so far.
[Warning: This Is Us season 5 finale episode “Adirondacks” contains spoilers.]
The fifth season finale of ‘This Is Us’ provided some answers.
Dan Fogelman, the creator of “This Is Us,” He’d ‘Take Back’ the Pivotal TV Moment Once Revealed
Welcome to the group if you’re still thinking about This Is Us’ season 5 conclusion. We all need a collective breather between Randall (Sterling K. Brown) holding an umbrella over worried groom-to-be Kevin (Justin Hartleyhead )’s so he doesn’t turn “Tickle Me Elmo” red, Nicky (Griffin Dunne) hovering/complaining, and Toby (Chris Sullivan) brooding about a future long-distance romance with Kate (Chrissy Metz).
The authors of This Is Us know how to weave in essential elements among a huge occasion like a wedding, as they have in every previous season finale. Thankfully, the episode answered a couple of the cliffhanger’s unanswered questions.
Guesses on whether Madison (Caitlin Thompson) and Kevin would go through with the wedding seemed split down the middle. For those who predicted it wouldn’t happen — congrats! The two didn’t get married.
Fans did get a glimpse at some of Madison’s backstory, particularly where her mother left when she was young. She’s also been unlucky in love and it may have contributed to her disordered eating.
Meanwhile, Randall and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) had a much-needed (albeit uncomfortable) conversation about [William’s birth parents] Laurel and William. Rebecca apologized while Randall explained it “unlocked” a part of him he didn’t know existed. It may not be closure, but we hope it’ll help improve their relationship.
Season 6 will likely tap into Kevin’s love life again (and building that house Jack promised Rebecca) while, as many fans theorized, Toby and Kate are headed for… This story is a short summary. Hope you enjoyed.
