Since its debut on NBC in 2016, This Is Us has become one of the most popular shows, bringing in a slew of awards and other accolades for its moving and unique style of storytelling. But while tens of millions of viewers have watched the hit series week-in and week-out these past five years, others may just now hearing about the show in the final stretch of its run and want to go back and watch This Is Us streaming.

Doing just that has never been easier considering all the different ways you can can about watching the multi-generational story of the Pearson family unfold over the course of five seasons and 88 episodes. So, before This Is Us Season 6 premieres at some point during the 2021-2022 TV season, there’s never been a better time to go back and get caught up the TV show some consider the best the medium has had to offer in quite some time.

Where To Watch This Is Us Seasons 1-5 Streaming

If you want to watch everything from the beginning all the way to the This Is Us Season 5 finale, you’re in luck because there are quite a few ways to go about doing so. The best option is to watch This Is Us Hulu as every single episode is streaming there. No matter if you have the basic Hulu account or the top-tier, ad-free version, all five seasons can be watched in their entirety.

If you don’t have Hulu or maybe don’t want to add another service to your large collection of streamers (which is understandable considering the number of platforms available today), you can watch the two most recent episodes of This Is Us Season 5 on the NBC website. You will need to link to your cable/satellite provider if you wish to watch older episodes though.

The final five episodes of This Is Us Season 5 are also available on Peacock, but anything older than that will require another streaming service.

Is This Is Us On Netflix?

One of the biggest questions that comes up with any show like This Is Us is “Is that streaming on Netflix?” And while the streaming giant does boast a seemingly endless list of new and classic TV shows available with a few clicks, that’s not the case for This Is Us. And don’t get your hopes up thinking you’ll be able to watch the Pearson family story unfold on Netflix anytime soon as Hulu currently holds the subscription video on demand (SVOD) rights to the acclaimed series, per EW.

When Does This Is Us Season 6 Premiere?

Longtime fans of the This Is Us have a lot of questions heading into the show’s sixth and final season, especially with the way things ended in This Is Us Season 5. Show creator Dan Fogelman has previously said that everything will be tied up when This Is Us Season 6 picks back up, but the show's return will be a little later than expected.

While the first five seasons of This Is Us have all found a home on the Fall TV schedule (Seasons 1-4 debuted each September from 2016 to 2019; Season 5 in October 2020), the sixth and final season won’t pick back up until midway through the 2021-2022 schedule, so some time in early 2022, per TV Line. It isn’t all bad news, however, as all 18 episodes will air largely uninterrupted, meaning few, if any, multi-week breaks. Talk about one hell of a way to go out.

Philip grew up in Louisiana (not New Orleans) before moving to St. Louis after graduating from Louisiana State University-Shreveport. When he's not writing about movies or television, Philip can be found being chased by his three kids, telling his dogs to stop barking at the mailman, or chatting about professional wrestling to his wife. Writing gigs with school newspapers, multiple daily newspapers, and other varied job experiences led him to this point where he actually gets to write about movies, shows, wrestling, and documentaries (which is a huge win in his eyes). If the stars properly align, he will talk about For Love Of The Game being the best baseball movie of all time.
