*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
This Is Us series creator Dan Fogelman is sharing brand-new details about what’s to come in season five, and we’re extremely worried about Randall Pearson (Sterling K. Brown).
It all started when the showrunner answered fan questions on Twitter and confirmed the new episodes of This Is Us will address the coronavirus pandemic. “Yes on COVID,” he wrote. “We’ve decided to attack things head on. Very proud of @ThisIsUsWriters.”
So, what does it mean for the characters? We’re not entirely sure, since Fogelman assured fans that COVID-19 won’t affect the overall plot. “Same planned ending. Same route to get there,” he added.
