On a conference call with press, creator Dan Fogelman promised that “all of those timelines are going to be brought to completion and explained.”
“There will be no looming questions when we get through the end of next season,” he said. “Everything will be resolved, and you can’t always claim that 100 percent of your audience is going to like every single decision you make for the characters, but I don’t think anything will be left on the table. So, all those locations you’ve been to, all those future timelines we’ve been to, they will all get resolutions.”
He also shared that the show will “heavily” live both in that wedding timeline and the family gathering by Rebecca’s bedside, while still exploring all the other Pearson family moments that the show has already been exploring.
“We have been working tirelessly to kind of set up this rewarding final season to make all the pieces fit together,” he explained. “We know what we owe, we know what our plan is and that’s been part of the great benefit of, from the very beginning, the early success of the show allowing us to kind of know our end game, has allowed us to build for what we hope will be a very rewarding final season.”
We also got a promise that we will finally be getting the full story of Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and Miguel (Jon Huertas), meaning there are multiple second weddings on the horizon.
