‘This Is Us’ Creator Dan Fogelman Admits He’s Already Shot Pieces of The Series’ Final Scene & Teases Season 3

At the “For Your Emmy Consideration” Panel held at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles on Tuesday, This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman brought to light some intriguing twists about the show’s upcoming third season, and a tidbit about the entire construct of the show.   Fogelman said, “We’re pretty far along, our writers are kind of to the end. We have a path for each season of the show. We’ve always had a plan. I don’t think the show will ever – despite any success it may or may not have – will overstay its welcome, and we have a story to tell.”  Then, he added, “I’ve actually already shot pieces of the final scene in the series.”

As to the who is “her” mystery that was brought to light in the season two finale flash forward, which features Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and the adult version of Tess (Iantha Richardson), he coyly said, “I think people are going to be surprised with how we use that timeline.”

And, as for Toby’s (Chris Sullivan) deep depression, seen in the season two finale flash forward, and the backstory of Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson), Fogelman teased they both get showcase episodes, which should be very interesting since we’ve seen showcase episodes before, for the Big Three, played by Justin Hartley (Kevin), Chrissy Metz (Kate), and Sterling K. Brown.

So, who is “her”?  What do you think we’ll learn about Beth’s backstory?  What do you think about that the final episode of the series has already taped one of its final scenes?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Who she is or how it plays out, I haven’t a clue.
I do know, whoever, it will be great.
The writers are phenomenal and I know it will be awesome..

to mention;
the cast is pure harmony! none better.
They fit with each other like puzzle pieces creating one picture..

Excited for the coming season !

I had forgotten the who is “her” teaser, unlike the who shot JR cliffhanger from Dallas(the episode that invented the cliffhanger/teasers) which stayed the hot water cooler topic all summer long so by September everyone was glue to the show on reveal night to find out the answer– So who ever “her” is it wasn’t enough to make me feel impatient for the show’s return to find out, in fact I still can’t picture it my head- LOL
As for them having a series ending in mind already–good for them, some shows make it up as they go (remember Lost)— a clear destination will prevent a show from “jumping the shark”

“This Is Us” defies the usual network Primetime gunk. Well-written & well-acted, which make it return TV. Most network dramas play out quickly. This one definitely has legs.

‘The Talk’ Renewed For 15th and Final Season to End in December; Does Its Cancellation Make Room for ‘The Gates’?

Things just got very interesting over at CBS daytime with the announcement today that The Talk is going to end its run on the network after its 15th season, and that season looks to be shortened as the series will come to its conclusion in December of 2024.

In a joint statement, Amy Reisenbach, President, CBS Entertainment and David Stapf, President, CBS Studio, shared, “The Talk broke new ground when it launched 14 years ago by returning daytime talk to CBS with a refreshing and award-winning format. Throughout the years, it has been a key program on CBS’ top rated daytime line-up as it brought timely, important and entertaining topics and discussions into living rooms around the globe.”

Reisenback and Stapf added, “It goes without saying that hosting and producing a year-round talk show is no easy task, and we express our sincere gratitude to our amazing hosts Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Jerry O’Connell and Sheryl Underwood, our Executive Producer/Showrunner Rob Crabbe and the hardworking producing team and crew.

Giving props to those who co-hosted or worked on the show through the years including: Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen Moonves, Carrie Ann Inaba Leah Ramimi, Marissa Janet Winokur, Holly Robinson Peete, Eve, Aisha Tyler, and Sharon Osbourne, the joint statement added, “We also want to acknowledge our former show hosts and colleagues who contributed throughout the seasons. We truly appreciate the skill, creativity, and dedication everyone involved brought to the show every day.  And of course, we thank the numerous guests who appeared, and the millions of viewers who tuned in daily. For the final season, we plan to celebrate the show and give it the proper sendoff it deserves when it concludes in December 2024.”

While no firm decision or announcement has been given at this time, it seems most likely that The Talk’s time slot could be given to the new soap opera in development The Gates from CBS Studio Ventures and from longtime soap opera writer. Michele Val Jean.  As previously reported, The Gates features the lives of a wealthy Black family who reside in a posh, gated community.

The Talk was originally the brainchild of Sara Gilbert, who had developed the show when it launched back 2010 and it replaced the beloved As the World Turns which went off the air after 54 years when CBS canceled it.

So, what do you think of The Talk being canceled? Will this make room for The Gates to begin to air in its spot beginning in 2025? Share your reactions to the news via the comment section.
