"I knew this was coming but this hurts," tweeted a fan.

A second Twitter user shared: "I'm sad to see that This Is Us is ending after season 6 but I'm glad they'll be leaving on a high note. What a great show."

"I knew this would come eventually but I'm not ready," wrote somebody else.

As a fourth penned: "the thought of #ThisIsUs ending is making me sad?," and another agreed: "Sad to see #ThisIsUs ending such a good show".

"Kind of surprised they are ending #ThisIsUs after s6. Figured they'd take it to Grey's levels", quipped another Twitter user.

Dan Fogelman's drama has pulled at the heartstrings of millions since the show debuted in in 2016.

Four seasons have aired so far, with the current fifth season set to come to an end on 25th May. Each season has consisted of 18 episodes apart from season five which will have 16. It is thought that the sixth season will also have around 18 episodes.
