This is Us Season 6 Story

This is Us Season 6 Episode 1 Release Date

Kevin, Kate, and Randall (called the “Big Three”), as well as their parents Jack and Rebecca Pearson, are the focus of the show. Kevin, Kate, and Kyle were born prematurely on Jack’s 36th birthday in 1980, and their brother Kyle was stillborn six weeks later. The story centers on the present, with flashbacks revealing the family’s past.

Jack and Rebecca, both are white, decide to adopt an African-American child named Rendall who was born a day before and taken to the same hospital by his biological father William Hill after he was abandoned at a fire station. Jack died when his children are around 17 and his wife Rebecca marries Miguel who was jack’s best friend. Rendall becomes a successful finance professional and marries Beth who was once his classmate in college, Tess and Annie are two daughters the couple has and they also adopt a child Deja just like Jack did.

Kate meets and marries Toby, pursues a musical career, earns a degree, and becomes a mother after a life of adversity. Kevin becomes a successful actor as he worked so hard and struggle so much. The majority of episodes feature a present-day storyline (2016-2021, concurrent with airing) and a storyline set in the past; however, some episodes are set in one time period or use multiple flashbacks.

As adults, their homes become more diverse, they are now living in different places as Kate lives in Los Angeles, Randall in New Jersey, and then Philadelphia, and Kevin first lives in western Pennsylvania then moves to Los Angeles and New York.

Some of the episodes have also been set in other time periods and locations, and others have been centered on Randall’s family members William, Deja, and Beth. A later period is also shown in flashforwards, i.e., Randall’s daughter Tess as an adult and an elderly Rebecca as she lies on her deathbed in the second season.
