It sure is good to be back, right?
Many have missed being with the Pearson family, but we’re finally back for another season.
Created by Dan Fogelman, the show first arrived back in 2016 over on NBC, enveloping audiences in a captivating tale told across different time frames. The gates opened once again for US fans on Tuesday, January 4th 2022.
The first episode gave us a lot to digest but the big question that we were left with was this… when is the next one?
With that in mind, let’s talk about This Is Us season 6 episode 2.
This Is Us season 6 episode 2 release date
The second episode of This Is Us season 6 is scheduled to premiere on NBC on Tuesday, January 11th 2022 at 9 pm.
Over in the UK, on the other hand, fans will be invited to check it out on Amazon Prime Video and Disney+ on Thursday, January 13th 2022. That’s because new episodes premiere in the UK two days after the US.
As for the streaming situation in the US, new episodes are added to Hulu and the NBC website one day after they air.
Looking further ahead, this latest season is already set to be made up of 18 episodes, the same as all of the previous bar the fifth
Now, let’s dive deeper into the forthcoming second installment.
This Is Us season 6 episode 2 preview
There is already a brief promo clip for the episode you can check out below.
It has been titled ‘One Giant Leap’ and this time we’ll be with Nicky, Rebecca and Miguel as they embark upon a road trip.
We arguably could’ve guessed that this chapter would be firmly focused on Nicky just from the title alone. Remember the episode titled ‘One Small Step’ that chronicled Nicky’s journey to California?
Well, this second episode title suggests that it will hold a connection to that thanks to a focus on Nicky.
Miguel and Rebecca offer to take him to see Sally, his crush who he has grown increasingly into. Encouraging him not to be shy, they ultimately get him into the car and hit the road.
Is Sally the one he is married to in the future? Will they get together? We’ll simply have to wait and see.
Is this really it for the Pearsons?
Afraid so. You may have already heard that the current season has been billed as the final season of This Is Us.
Not that it was cancelled, mind. NBC allowed the creator and crew to complete the journey on their own terms; it just turns out that Dan Fogelman felt that it was the right time to hang it up.
While in conversation about the season 3 finale in 2019 he outlined:
“I think we’re roughly in the middle of where the television series is going to go. We never set out to make a television series that was going to last 18 seasons, and so we have a very direct plan. But yeah, I think where you find the characters right now, you’re in the middle of their story.”
Importantly, he added: “If you were in the movie theater, you’d be at the moment where you’re about an hour into the movie wondering what’s going to happen.”
