Everyone has a family. And every family has a story. This Is Us chronicles the Pearson family across the decades: from Jack and Rebecca as young parents in the 1980s to their now-40-year-old kids Kevin, Kate, and Randall, searching for love, fulfilment and families of their own in the present day.
This grounded, life-affirming dramedy reveals how the tiniest events in our lives impact who we become, and how the connections we share with each other can transcend time, distance, and even death.
In the two-hour premiere of Season 5, the Pearsons get together to celebrate their 40th birthday.
Critics praised the premiere episode’s handling of the pandemic, with AV Club saying, “Though my immediate instinct was that the show should’ve just ignored COVID entirely, this episode handles the pandemic far more gracefully than I would’ve thought possible.”
