Would you believe it if we told you the first episode of This Is Us premiered on NBC six years ago? Where does the time go? In honor of the sixth anniversary, one of the show’s stars, Mandy Moore, treated fans to exclusive throwback photos of the cast from set.

The 38-year-old actress shared a photo slideshow on her personal Instagram account on Tuesday. The very first picture shows an outdated Entertainment Weekly cover article and we see the whole Pearson family: Rebecca (Moore), Jack (Milo Ventimiglia), Randall (Sterling K. Brown), Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Kevin (Justin Hartley).

Several other pictures in the slideshow were taken during the first season, including a behind-the-scenes snapshot of Rebecca and Jack’s wedding. One even shows Jack spending time with the kids (while holding a “World’s Best Dad” mug). In another photo, we see the cast and crew celebrating the show’s premiere. (The feelssss.)

Moore wrote in the caption, “6 years ago today, #thisisus premiered. It feels like yesterday and also a million years ago. So grateful to all of you who came on the ride with us and let us tell this incredible story.”

She ended the note, “Here [are] a few snaps from those first few crazy months (slide 2 was our premiere party at some random sports bar where we all live-tweeted the show lol). Missing my Pearson fam a lot today!”

The A Walk to Remember actress is not the only cast member to share a nostalgic tribute to the show’s premiere. Metz also posted a picture of the entire main cast and wrote, “You first met the Pearson family 6 years ago today… our forever fam. Happy premiere anniversary, #ThisIsUs [yellow heart emoji] Share some of your favorite @nbcthisisus memories below to celebrate.”

Time really does fly.
