After six tear-jerking seasons (and one memorable pressure cooker moment), This Is Us comes to an end tonight, with the series finale airing on NBC.
The ensemble drama premiered to huge ratings when it debuted in September 2016 and became one of the few breakout hits on traditional network TV. While streaming services like Netflix and Hulu have garnered the lion’s share of buzz (and accolades) in recent years, This Is Us consistently posted impressive numbers for NBC, ranking as one of the top television dramas in each of its six seasons.
It was a critically-acclaimed show too. The cast took home a Screen Actors Guild Award, and many of the main actors have also been nominated at the Emmys, Critics Choice Awards and Golden Globes (Sterling K. Brown claims a win at all four of the previously-mentioned ceremonies).
Now, the series comes to an end, a commendable six seasons and 105 episodes later. Read on to find out how to watch the This Is Us series finale and how to stream every episode of the hit show online for free.
