And in true This Is Us fashion, fans can also expect tears and heartbreak at the end of the series.

"I think it's wonderful. I think it's incredibly satisfying. I think it's beautiful. I was just on set with Dan about two weeks ago and he was talking about some things that I didn't know about the end. I was there with Mandy [Moore]. We just kind of looked at each other, like, one, excited to get into it, and two, incredibly devastated as human beings because this is probably gonna wreck people in the most heartfelt way. It's beautiful. I'm so excited," Ventimiglia said.

After all, Rebecca was diagnosed with a degenerative disease in the previous season. So, it's highly likely for the writers to create some heartbreaking storylines centered on Moore's character.

Ventimiglia also assured fans that all the loose ends from the previous seasons would be addressed in This Is Us Season 6. And the writers and director are doing a great job at making sure that no question would be left unanswered.

Moore may have also hinted at the possibility of Rebecca dying at the end of This Is Us Season 6.

While speaking with the Los Angeles Times, Moore said that her character knows that Alzheimer's would eventually rob her of everything – most especially her time with her children.

So, coming into This Is Us Season 6, fans will see Rebecca wanting to spend as much time as she can with Kate (Chrissy Metz), Randall (Sterling K. Brown), and Kevin (Justin Hartley).

"I feel like her light had sort of dulled after Rebecca lost Jack. Ironically, this diagnosis forces her to live life with joie de vivre," Moore said.

"I think as an actor, I'm definitely itching to play something else, as we all do. At the same time, I'm proud of what we've done and I'm excited for the opportunities that will present themselves after the show is over," he said.
