It’s been nearly three months since This Is Us ended its six-season run, and in that time, we’ve realized that we really don’t want to live in a world without The Pearsons — or, at least, hope of their return.
Sure, we know that series creator Dan Fogelman has said he’s “pretty set” on this past May’s Season 6/series finale being the final installment of the family drama, and that “I really feel we’ve put these stories to bed now.” But he also said, “Who knows what change of heart my ensuing midlife crisis brings?”
So with that in mind, we’re doing a little daydreaming about what a revival of the long-running family drama might look like. We’re thinking a limited series… bringing back all of the original cast… with music by Siddhartha Khosla… and copious reflections on the bittersweet nature of existence. And really, is that too much to ask?
We’ve even had a few thoughts about where the Pearsons might be, say, 10 years after the events of the series finale. Did Randall ever make it to the Oval Office? Did Kevin turn down The Manny‘s second reboot? Did Kate create a revolution in education? In short, did they live as fearlessly as Rebecca begged them to before her own life came to an end?
