Its creator Dan Fogelman and team of producers and writers left viewers on the edge of their seats at the end of season 5, with so many unanswered questions.

Will season 6 provide them, will it be the last of the series, who will be the returning cast members and when will episode 1 - and subsequent episodes - air? Let's find out.

When will This Is Us season 6 come out in the UK?

Episode 1 of the new season - season 6 - of This Is Us aired on Thursday 6 January in the UK and Ireland.

New episodes are scheduled to land on Thursdays, including episode 2 which is scheduled to be released on Thursday 13 January.

How can I watch This Is Us season 6 in the UK?

This Is Us has found a home on Amazon Prime Video in the UK and continues to be aired on the streaming service for season 6.

Seasons 1-5 are also on Amazon Prime Video so it's never too late to start the This Is Us journey or start from the beginning once more.

Who is in the cast of This Is Us season 6?

Season six of This Is Us has all the familiar faces you’d expect, as well as expanding on new characters to the award-winning show.

The cast includes Milo Ventimiglia (Jack Pearson), Mandy Moore (Rebecca Pearson), Sterling K. Brown (Randall Pearson), Chrissy Metz (Kate Pearson), Justin Hartley (Kevin Pearson), Susan Kelechi Watson (Beth Pearson), and Chris Sullivan (Toby Damon), among others.

Will This Is Us season 6 be the last?

Amazon Prime is billing it as The Final Chapter and it certainly seems to be that way as the Pearson family come to terms with Rebecca's Alzheimer's.

Creator Fogelman said: "I do feel that we have our endgame. Because of the nature of the show that exists in the past and because we have answers in the future, there really is no way to continue it moving forward without just seasons of people in aged makeup. It just doesn’t work. So I feel confident in the plan. It’ll be very sad and bittersweet. But right now, I’m just thinking of sticking the landing."
