Kevin Pearson’s (Justin Hartley) ex-wife, Sophie (Alexandra Breckenridge) previous teased her return to the series. The actress said that she’s more than willing to reprise her role, but it will depend on whether her schedule would permit. After all, she’s also starring in Virgin River.
“I think they’ve been really hoping that it would work out maybe in the future. So, we’ll see — maybe something, maybe I’ll be able to come back either in a love interest capacity or in an old friend capacity,” she told Us Weekly.
The love interests of the Pearson kids will also be featured in This Is Us Season 6.

What Did The Cast Say About This Is Us Season 6 Ending?
Some of the regular cast members from This Is Us Season 6 already teased the final 18 episodes of the hit series.
Even though they cannot say exactly what will happen in the upcoming installments, all of them said that the final season will be bittersweet and emotional.
Metz also said that fans of This Is Us will feel a certain amount of closure, and they will also bring with them bittersweet memories.
“You know when you go to a party and everyone’s cool, and then it gets really good, like, when there are 30 minutes left? That’s what it feels like. It’s like, ‘Oh, my God, it’s just getting good and now we’re leaving. It doesn’t mean that you didn’t have an incredible last 30 minutes or incredible time at the party, but you’d rather go instead of being like, ‘Oh, we overstayed our welcome’ or ‘Oh, that was so boring. That party was awful. I’m never going back to his house!’ So, I understand that good things must come to an end,” she told Us Weekly.
Ventimiglia also teased what’s in store for his character in This Is Us Season 6.
“Of course, you know, Jack will still be there. Jack will be around in memories. We’ve already dealt with alcoholism. So, we gotta wrap that one up. We dealt with war. Gotta wrap that one up. A lot of layers to Jack. There’s always something to do,” he said during his interview with Mario Lopez.
