In the biggest twist of Season 5 — and arguably one of the most unexpected moments since the time-traveling revelation of the series’ premiere — This Is Us fans learned that the NBC drama’s final season will see not only the demise of Kate and Toby’s marriage, but Kate’s getting remarried to Phillip, the music teacher she works with at her son Jack’s school.
I, for one, am super interested to watch Phillip’s character arc and see how he’s able to win Kate (and This Is Us fans) over.
Other phrases that the This Is Us actors have used to describe what fans can expect in its sixth and final season include “incredibly devastated,” “saddest moments,” and “ugly crying.”
The final chapter of the Pearsons’ story begins at 9 p.m. ET, Tuesday, January 4, on NBC.
