Freshly confirmed that the This Is Us finale will premiere in May, series creator Dan Fogelman is already talking about the potential for a future film. This is not unheard of in the era of series.

The showrunner of This is Us also continued, while teasing the Series Finale: “I don’t know what it would be because we end our story in the series finale. ..It’s not because we have no more story to tell, it’s because we exactly planned it to go in this direction. We’re on a five year trajectory and we suddenly have to pivot and add more because we don’t want it to end wouldn’t be entirely responsible for the series and what we planned and it would start to become something else.” Dan Fogelman therefore qualified his remarks. “I don’t know what this movie could be”, he explained. Then concluded: “By the end of this season, I think we will have told the whole story, so I’m not sure it’s like you’re doing the movie like what would have happened if Jack survived the fire or something.” As we know, everything is possible in the world of series…
