This Is Us Season 6: Latest Premiere Photos, Plot Speculation & More

In addition to NBC releasing a handful of photos this week from the This Is Us season 6 premiere, we also have some title news to go along with it!

According to the network, the name for the January 4 episode is “The Challenger,” which should be a nod to a lot of longtime fans out there. If you think back to the very start of the series, Kevin Pearson (pictured above) had a number of discussions about watching the famed explosion back when he was in second grade. That’s when he claimed his life took a sharp turn.

There’s a chance now that in the season 6 premiere, Kevin could bring back this discussion as he lives out the next phase of his life. Maybe he tells a bunch of new people this story — maybe it’s a defense mechanism for him after the wedding with Madison was called off. He’s going to be in a vulnerable place, and we imagine that on some level, he’ll try to mask where he is by talking a lot about his career or about some random anecdotes from the past.

In the end, we do know that Kevin wants a family; it’s one of the reasons why he was so excited to be a dad! There’s a lot of this side of Justin Hartley’s character coming in the final season, but there are still questions about his romantic future. Maybe this is something the premiere could explore a little bit further.


What are you the most excited to see when it comes to the This Is Us season 6 premiere?

Be sure to share right now in the attached comments! After you do just that, stick around — there are other updates coming and of course, we don’t want you to miss them.
