This is Us is an American tv drama that debuted on NBC on September 20, 2016, and continues to air today. They portray numerous distinct periods of families and lifestyles of two parents and three children in this series. This is Us started as an 80-page movie script written by Dan Fogelman in the spring of 2015 while working for ABC Studios. The plot centred around the lifestyles of eight individuals who were later revealed to be octuplets, according to Fogelman, who admitted that the script had no clear path. After signing an eight-figure agreement with 20th Century Fox Television, Fogelman decided to create a television series based on the characters in his original script, trimming a few characters and editing the script down to 45 pages before submitting it to the studio. Despite excellent evaluations from both 20th Century Fox Television and Fox, the sibling business, there were doubts about the show's ability to draw an audience, thus Fox sold it to NBC. NBC pledged to leverage the enormous volume of people from The Voice and the Summer Olympics to draw additional viewers to the series, while Fox sought to cement its reputation among writers and directors as a studio that places projects where they are most likely to be successful, even if it is not Fox. The sitcom was picked up by NBC for a full season of 18 episodes on September 27, 2016. In January 2017, NBC revived the show for two more series of 18 episodes each. The second season began on September 26, 2017. On September 25, 2018, the third season premiered. NBC renewed the show for three more seasons in May 2019. On September 24, 2019, the fourth season premiered. On October 27, 2020, the fifth season premiere. On May 12, 2021, it was revealed that the sixth season of the show would be the last. On May 3, 2022, the production was completed.
