L-R – Brown, Hartley — NBC

Although NBC is officially mum, The Hollywood Reporter says the network’s award-winning drama series This Is Us will end with the upcoming sixth season. 

The show, which spans the decades following the Pearson family from the ’80s to the present, stars Milo Ventimiglia and Mandy Moore as Jack and Rebecca Pearson, respectively; and Justin Hartley, Chrissy Metz and Sterling K. Brown play their children.

Brown, who plays adopted son Randall, earned an Emmy in 2017 for his work in the series, which has earned a trio of nominations for Outstanding Drama Series, as well as acting nominations for Ventimiglia, Metz, Moore, and Chris Sullivan, who plays Metz’s husband.

Additionally, Ron Cephas Jones earned a pair of Emmy trophies for guest roles on the show, in 2018 and 2020.
