THIS IS US fans have been left “crying, screaming and emotionally wrecked” by harrowing new season 5 episodes.
Since launching in 2016 it’s become one of the most talked about show’s ever thanks to its twists and turns, and now it’s tackling some major storylines that are leaving viewers unable to cope.
Last night This Is Us returned with a two hour special that saw it tackle a whole host of heart wrenching topics including the coronavirus pandemic, black lives matter, police brutality and living with dementia.
And not only that but it also teased that someone viewers had long thought dead might actually still be alive.
Fans were understandably left ill prepared for such an emotionally charged premiere (it’s been a hard year) and flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts.
One wrote: “Crying and just crying #ThisIsUs”

While a third penned: “Up late crying after watching #thisisus and then the ending”
