Sadly, it’s the beginning of the end for the Pearson’s story as NBC has released a trailer for the final season of its family drama series, This Is Us titled ‘The Final Chapter’.

“I’m losing my memory. Sometimes I think about what my very last memory will be before the candle goes out,” Rebecca Pearson (played by Mandy Moore) says at the top of the trailer.
“I don’t know how much longer I have before things get worse so I made sure to remember every little detail. I would just wish I could make time stand still… I’m not worried about forgetting the big stuff, it’s the little thing I’m not ready to let go of.”
This is Us was created and executive produced by Dan Fogelman and comes from the production company, 20th Television. The cast of the series is led by Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, who won an Emmy for his role, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Sullivan.
