This is Us Season 5 Release Date
‘This is Us’ was all set for a release after the US elections on 10th November 2020. However, the premier of season 5 was preponed. On 27th October 2020, a two-hour-long premiere took place on NBC. The show’s makers felt that it was the time when the audience needed to see something refreshing, and hence, they decided to move the premiere date behind schedule.
When is the next episode of ‘This is Us’ coming?
It seems like the fans of the show will have to keep their patience intact. This is because the next episode of the series will be aired on 10th November. This is because during the scheduled airing time, NBC will be doing its part in the elections, and the slot of ‘This is Us’ won’t be free for its normal release.
This could be why NBC did a 2-hour premiere instead of the usual one-hour episode air. The next episode will continue the story in a time of two weeks.
