Mandy Moore (who plays Rebecca Pearson) shared a fun filming update for This Is Us Season 6 on Instagram on December 10th.
The actress revealed that she would be directing the ninth episode of the final season.
Moore also confirmed that Metz, along with David Windsor and Casey Johnson, co-wrote the new chapter.
"I will be forever grateful to Dan Fogelman for changing my life in every way with-hashtag-thisisus and for giving me the opportunity to direct a truly extraordinary episode of television written by the brilliant David Windsor, Casey Johnson, and @chrissymetz in our final season," Moore wrote.
Metz teased the new episode she co-wrote for season 6 in an interview with Entertainment Weekly a few days after Moore's Instagram post about episode 9 of This Is Us Season 6.
Finally, the ninth episode will focus on Kate, and it will mark a "turning point" in the character's relationship with Toby as the season progresses.
"She's getting to know [Phillip] and seeing things that she didn't remotely understand in the early episodes of the season," Metz said.
"You can tell they're getting along, but there's no romance yet."
"The episode that I got to co-write, [episode] 9, which is Kate's episode â that's going to be a massive turning point for Kate and Toby," she continued.
Now, in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Metz revealed a few more details about Kate and Toby's storyline in episode 9 of Season 6 of This Is Us.
Metz initially stated that Kate wants to "salvage" her relationship with Toby during what is supposed to be an "amazing weekend." However, as viewers are aware, Kate does not get what she desires in the end.
While many This Is Us fans are still reeling from Kate and Toby's breakup, it appears that season 6 episode 9 will provide the answers they've been waiting for.
Remember, Moore teased that the next chapter will be "a truly extraordinary television episode," so stay tuned.
The sixth and final season will premiere on January 4, 2022.
