This is Us will return for some more tear-jerking family drama this autumn, with the season 5 premiere date now confirmed by NBC.
The award-winning series will return to screens in the US for a two-hour premiere on Tuesday, November 10.
Thanks to star Sterling K Brown, we already know that the next season may "reflect" the Black Lives Matter movement, with more real-life events from 2020 also set to play a part in the time-jumping show.
Fogelman revealed the news when asked by one fan "Will the writers address Covid in present day?" and "Is the planned show ending the same in light of events?"
"Yes on Covid[-19]. We've decided to attack things head on. Very proud of the This is Us writers," he wrote in response.
He went on to confirm that the series will have the same ending, writing: "Same planned ending. Same route to get there. Hope that's (somewhat) useful?"
At that point, Fogelman was unsure when the show would return to production due to the delays caused by the pandemic, but with the announcement of the season 5 premiere, it seems things have evidently been set back in motion.
This is Us airs on NBC in the US, and on Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
