The jaws of This Is Us fans were on the floor after May 25th’s episode but will season 5 feature an episode 17? How many episodes are there in total?

Since it arrived on NBC in 2016, This Is Us has been one of the must-watch shows on TV.

However, the episode’s ending has left fans asking if This Is Us season 5will continue for episode 17.

This Is Us season 5 on NBC

Season 5 of This Is Us got underway with a two-part special on October 27th, 2020, roughly a month late thanks to a certain pandemic.

As well as causing filming delays and breaks between episodes, the Covid-19 pandemic has even proven to be a key factor for the characters in season 5, as well as the usual Pearson family drama including Kevin, Madison, Kate and Toby welcoming new family members, Randall learning more about his birth mother and even Uncle Nicky making a surprise visit.

Is there an episode 17?

  • No, there will not be an episode 17 in This Is Us season 5.

That’s because This Is Us season 5 only consisted of 16 episodes in total, making it the show’s shortest season.

After season 5 began airing in October, new episodes have arrived sporadically with numerous breaks taking place as the crew caught up with filming.

At long last, This Is Us season 5 came to a dramatic end on May 25th with episode 16 which saw Kevin and Madison’s wedding go somewhat awry.
