‘This Is Us’ Season 5 Filming Underway, Forged & Crew Put up On Social Media – Deadline
The COVID-19 pandemic cannot tell the Big Three apart as This Is Us began production for season five on Thursday. Stars Sterling K. Brown, Milo Ventimiglia, Chrissy Metz and creator Dan Fogelman gave This Is Us fans a glimpse into the production of the fifth season on social media.
Fogelman posted an on-screen photo of Ventimiglia and his wife, Mandy Moore, wearing masks and keeping social distance. He tweeted, “A TV sex scene for 2020. We’re back. #This is us.”
Ventimiglia and Moore also shared Fogelman’s tweet on their own official Twitter feed.
On Thursday, Brown, Metz and Justin Hartley announced that the two-hour debut of season five of This Is Us will take place two weeks before its first premiere date on November 10. Metz, Brown and Hartley shared a scrapbook of scenes from the coming season, from photos of Moore and Ventimiglia’s hand-holding characters to Metz’s Kate Pearson cradling her newborn baby.

“Do you want good news? I think we could use some good news, yeah? #ThisIsUs is back two weeks early! And yes … it’s still a 2 hour season premiere! I wanted you to have something to talk about while you cast your ballot. “See you in 33 days!” Wrote Brown.
The start of production on Thursday corresponds to the time at which the deadline was only known at the beginning of this month. Filming of This Is Us is coming as a number of television series are also returning to the studios. Warner Bros. TV-produced series such as All Rise, Lucifer and Bob Hearts Abishola have also returned to production in the past two weeks.
