New year, new seasons.
Diving into 2022 there has already been some memorable TV moments, whether stemming from the arrival of intriguing new titles or the return of familiar favourites.

Over on NBC, audiences were recently treated to the premiere of the latest season of This Is Us.

Created by Dan Fogelman, the show first arrived back in 2016 and many have been completely immersed in the lives of the Pearson family across different time frames ever since.

The family returned in the US on Tuesday, January 4th 2022, but there has been some confusion regarding the UK release and streaming situation this time around. So, is This Is Us season 6 on Amazon Prime?

Is This Is Us season 6 on Amazon Prime?

Yes, audiences can check out new episodes of This Is Us on Amazon Prime Video. Although previous seasons have had their streaming debut on Prime only in the UK, season 6 is also scheduled to drop on Disney+ too.

The first episode is set to drop on both platforms in the UK on Thursday, January 6th 2022.

So, viewers will have two places to check out the beloved show, depending on which platform they’re subscribed to.

As touched upon, this means UK viewers will get new installments two days later than those in the US. Bearing this in mind, it may be worth remaining wary on social media to avoid potential spoilers.

For those who wish to take a trip down memory lane and binge through the series, you’ll also be thrilled to learn that seasons 1-5 will be streaming too.

How many episodes?

Season 6 is set to be made up of 18 episodes in total.

All of the previous seasons apart from the previous were made up of the same amount, while season 5 offered slightly less at 16.

Then again, the COVID-19 pandemic affected a number of TV productions during that time. So, fans can rest assured that they won’t be short-changed with this final season, which may come to a close around July 2022.

This estimate factors in hiatuses, although the NBC Network boss Frances Berwick has suggested that season 6 will boast “a largely uninterrupted run”.

“We know that saying goodbye to the Pearsons is going to be hard enough,” Frances addressed. “So what we wanted to do is honour the fans and get them as close to an uninterrupted run as we could.”

Is This Is Us season 6 the last?

Yes, the latest has already been billed as the final season of the series. However, that doesn’t mean that NBC cancelled it; anything but.

Back when Dan Fogelman was discussing season 3 in 2019, he explained:

“I think we’re roughly in the middle of where the television series is going to go. We never set out to make a television series that was going to last 18 seasons, and so we have a very direct plan. But yeah, I think where you find the characters right now, you’re in the middle of their story.”

“If you were in the movie theater, you’d be at the moment where you’re about an hour into the movie wondering what’s going to happen,” he added.

This Is Us season 6 is streaming on Amazon Prime and Disney+ in the UK.
