Birthdays have been a recurring theme on this Emmy-winning family drama, and the show's sixth and final season opens with the so-called Big Three (Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley) celebrating their 41st such occasion. While fans already may be bracing themselves for the separation anxiety they know is coming, the producers are rolling out this final season without interruption, which means no pesky hiatuses. Even better, the cast members are assuring their social media followers that viewers will be left happy and satisfied by how things wrap up.
