The This Is Us creator compares the last moment to the end of The Sopranos
This is us Creator Dan Fogelman compared a moment in the show’s finale to the infamous ending of The sopranos.
The popular drama series, starring Sterling K Brown, Mandy Moore, Chrissy Metz and Milo Ventimiglia, ended this week after six seasons.
At a press conference for NBC, Fogelman said he felt Randall’s (Brown) “political journey ahead” could be compared to the cliffhanger in The sopranos – where Tony Soprano is at a diner with his family when a possible killer walks in before the scene goes black.
During the This is us relevant scene acc E! newsthe newly appointed senator decides to go to Iowa at a request from the Democratic National Committee, with the fate of his political career uncertain.
Fogelman said this is “probably the closest thing to us on the show sopranos turns black at the end of the episode”.
“It’s up to you to choose your own adventure of what you think happened to him,” he said (above E!). “I think it’s up to the audience to decide what they think happens next with Randall.
“Does he even decide to run again? Do he and Beth decide they’d rather settle down at home? When it’s running, how much traction is it getting? Does he win?”
He said that he thought he knew what would have happened to Randall and his family, but it was a question that “shouldn’t be answered.”
“There was definitely a lot of conversation about how we’re showing the end of Randall’s political journey,” he continued. “We all felt that a hypothetical flash forward to Randall being in the White House wasn’t what the show was all about. It would have broken a bit.
