This Is Us Wish List: The Moments We'd Love to See Happen in the Final Season


We’ve sniffled our way through the trailer. We’ve seen the poster. We’ve perused the photos. And now, all that’s left, ahead of This Is Us‘ upcoming final season, is to stock up on tissues and wait for the premiere on Tuesday, Jan. 4 (NBC, 9/8c).

Oh wait, there’s one more thing. We’ve been thinking about all of the Pearson-related moments that we hope will unfold before the hit ensemble drama wraps for good, and we’re betting that maybe you are, too? Because in a show that hops around in time as easily as cars switch lanes on the freeway, the opportunities are endless.

With that in mind, we’re hoping to see several key moments play out ahead of that final fade to black. Some, like Rebecca and Miguel’s wedding, we’ve been waiting for for quite some time. Others, like getting a glimpse of Déja’s baby, are relatively new wishes. Still others, like a particular wish for Susan Kelechi Watson’s Beth, stem from something we loved the first time it came around. All of them will help soften the blow of saying a permanent good-bye to the Pearsons when the series finale comes around.

So scroll down to see our Season 6 wishlist, then hit the comments with your deepest desires for the family series’ final run of episodes.
