‘This Is Us’: Will Rebecca and Miguel’s Relationship Be Explored in Season 5? – Showbiz Cheat Sheet

Not going to lie, its difficult to root for Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and Miguel (Jon Huertas) when their love story hasnt been explored four seasons deep into This Is Us. Thus far, Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) has been portrayed as the perfect husband to the Pearson matriarch. Meanwhile, Miguel still feels like a footnote after 72 episodes. So will This Is Us Season 5 finally dive deeper into Rebecca and Miguels relationship? Fans are itching to see this backstory unfold onscreen.

Even after the This Is Us Season 4 finale, we dont know a whole lot about Miguel. In the past, he was close friends with Rebecca and Jack. He also had two children and divorced his wife. Then years after Jacks death, Miguel reconnected with Rebecca on Facebook.

Eventually, the pair got married. But it became clear Miguels kids did not approve of their fathers relationship with Rebecca in the present day. They blamed Rebecca for their parents split. Meanwhile, Miguels relationship with Kate (Chrissy Metz), Kevin (Justin Hartley), and Randall (Sterling K. Brown) remained lukewarm.

Now This Is Us fans still dont understand the heart of Rebecca and Miguels backstory, including their romance in the past and present day as well as how the children reacted when the pair started a relationship.

At the beginninng of This Is Us Season 4 in October 2019, Huertas opened up about Miguel and hinted viewers may see more from his character.

I often think about what the legacy of this character will be and how he may educate others, the actor told NBC News. Its been a gradual and slow transition to getting fans to embrace Miguel, but hell have his moment.

Then by the midseason premiere in January 2020, fans were still itching for Miguels backstory. And in an interview with The Huffington Post, Huertas said there werent any major discussions about expanding the characters arc at the time. However, he hoped This Is Us would eventually give Miguel a little more backstory.

I hope that the show definitely delves into Miguels backstory, maybe how he became successful, how he became the husband of Rebecca. But we havent had any huge discussions about it yet, Huertas said. We know how they got together. We havent talked about how were going to see that.

By the end of This Is Us Season 4, Rebecca decided to partake in a nine month Alzheimers clinical trial in St. Louis, Missouri. She previously stated she didnt want to go and spend her final days with her family instead. However, Randall pushed her to change her mind.

Then according to The Hollywood Reporter, creator Dan Fogelman revealed the plans for the Pearson matriarch when the NBC drama returns. And now, we have confirmation This Is Us Season 5 will showcase Miguel and Rebeccas relationship.

Its obviously a challenging chapter for Rebecca moving forward, Fogelman said of Rebeccas move to St. Louis. We have a big storyline planned for Mandy in the next upcoming season in present day as an older woman and also her past timelines. That will include a deeper look into Rebecca and Miguels relationship throughout the decades.

Miguels time to shine will finally be upon us when This Is Us returns for its fifth season. Now lets just hope the new episodes will answer all our burning questions about Rebecca and Miguels love story and maybe even tell us where the couple ends up in the future.
