Just days after we learned the bad news that This Is Us is dunzo for 2020, Mandy Moore is showing us a light at the end of the tunnel.
Last week, it was revealed that although the hit NBC show just aired season five, episode four, it isn’t scheduled to return with more Pearson drama until 2021. As you can imagine, fans were confused and annoyed, to say the least. (Especially since the network provided zero explanation.)
Moore was quick to address the news on her Instagram Story. The actress went on to explain why the show is taking an unexpected hiatus, stating, “I’ve seen online that folks were a bit bummed out about that—I appreciate that, we all appreciate that you’re bummed out. But we just started production back, and it has been such a break-neck pace.”
She continued, “I believe I saw on Twitter tonight that [series creator Dan Fogelman] said our post team literally just locked in tonight’s episode last night. So, we have to get caught up. We are literally in the middle of filming, almost at the end of filming, the fifth episode, which would be airing next week. So, we need to catch up. So, we’ll see you in January.”
