ST. LOUIS — The fifth season of NBC’s ‘This Is Us’ now has a premiere date.

The show will kick-off with a two-hour premiere on Nov. 10. The cast of the show shared the news across social media on Thursday.

"I’m beyond excited to share some VERY good news: Season 5 of #ThisIsUs will kick off with a two-hour premiere on November 10th! Grateful to have a job I love so much and can’t wait to see my work family soon!!" Mandy Moore wrote on Twitter.

"It’s official... the Pearsons are coming home on 11/10. Tune in for a very special two hour premiere," Chrissy Metz wrote on Twitter.

Creator Dan Fogelman previously said on Aug. 6 he wasn’t sure when production would start due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

It also appears the virus will be on the new season. In a tweet, Fogelmen said, "Yes on Covid. We've decided to attack things head on."
