In last week’s (Tuesday, February 11) episode, This is Us focussed on Kate Pearson (played by Chrissy Metz) and her relationship with boyfriend Marc (Austin Abrams). At the end of the episode, fans were left feeling concerned about Kate’s welfare on the NBC drama but will have to wait until tomorrow to find out what happens next. However, will viewers be treated to a season five?
Warning: This article contains spoilers from This is Us season 4.
Fans last saw Kate in a being shouted at by abusive boyfriend Marc after she told him she wasn’t planning on leaving the record shop.
As the couple are in the car, he drives more erratically, scaring Kate and not listening to her when she tells him to slow down.
Eventually, he skids to a sudden stop and when she suggests they just take a step out of the car to calm down, he shouts: “I can’t even look at your fat face!” and drives off.
Kate phones her mother Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and begins to tell her things weren’t OK with her and Marc when he returns, steps out of the car and puts a blanket around her.
Kate then says goodbye to her mother before she is able to say anything else about what happened.

The future of This is Us is looking bright as the makers of the show have already confirmed the drama will be back for a fifth season.
But what’s even better is that an official release date has also been announced for the upcoming series.
This is Us season five will start on Tuesday, September 22, at 9pm on NBC.
However, there is even more good news in regards to new episodes of the drama.
Earlier last year, This is Us was renewed for three seasons: seasons four, five and six.
So viewers will be able to continue following the journey of the Pearson family for at least two more series once season four has come to an end.
In a statement announce the three-season renewal, Presidents of Scripted Programming at NBC Entertainment, Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta said: “In a television landscape with nearly 500 original scripted series, there are very few, if any, that have the critical and cultural impact of This Is Us, and we couldn’t be more proud to bring fans three more seasons of a show that so well represents the NBC brand.
“A huge thank you and congratulations to our executive producers, cast and crew who reach new heights every week with the show’s inventive and compelling storytelling.”

At the time of renewal, creator Dan Fogelman also tweeted: “Three years ago, we were live tweeting the premiere of our TV show hoping someone, anyone, might watch.
“Today, our friends @nbc picked up This is Us for three more seasons, bringing us to six.
“It is an amazing show of support and it is due to the hard work of the 300+ talent, kind people who have devoted the last three years of their professional lives to our show.
“It’s also due to our impassions, dedicated fans. Some days you guys hate Miguel, some days you love Miguel but we always love you.”
The next episode of This is Us is entitled The Cabin.
In the promo for the upcoming instalment, the Pearson siblings go to a cabin where they used to go as children.
In a flashback moment, it shows father Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia) introducing them to a time capsule which they will dig up in the new episode.
But what are they going to find in the box which had been buried for decades?
This is Us season 4 continues tomorrow, Tuesday, February 18, at 9pm on NBC.
