Fans of This Is Us expect the worst when it comes to the future of Kate (Chrissy Metz). While some viewers think Toby (Chris Sullivan) would divorce Kate, others seem to think she’s gone.
Nevertheless, Metz recently spoke about the famous “This Is Us” hypothesis about Kate’s death, and the actress’ statement would hopefully put fans at ease.
Why ‘This Is Us’ fans assume that in the future, Kate is dead
‘This Is Us’: Dan Fogelman explains how the series is going to end, and it’s so plain that it’s almost surprising.
Kate is the only member of the Big Three who has not turned up in the far future prior to “This Is Us” Season 5.
Randall Both (Sterling K.
Brown) and Kevin (Justin Hartley) appear in the flash-forward at Rebecca’s (Mandy Moore) bedside.
Characters including Nicky (Griffin Dunne), Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) and Toby have made an appearance.
Kate was also absent in another flash-forward involving Jack Damon, her adult son (Blake Stadnik). Jack and his wife Lucy (Auden Thornton) have welcomed a baby girl, Hope, into the world in this scene.
Jack’s sister Hailey was the only family member to show up at Hope’s birth (Adelaide Kane). So, fans became even more concerned about Kate’s possible whereabouts.
Chrissy Metz reacts to a hypothesis about the death of Kate.

Despite Kate’s absence from any future preview of “This Is Us,” Metz continues to tell fans not to worry about the potential death of the character.
The actor told Entertainment Weekly back in September 2019 that, for all we know, Kate might be in the cleaners.
Then Metz stood by her previous statement in a TVLine interview published in December 2020.
Metz said, “I just want to tell people that Kate is running errands. She may have things to do,” “Who knows? I tell people not to get upset.”
That is, the theory of Kate’s death was not entirely ruled out by Metz.
But she suggested that if Kate was dead in the future, she’d still be on the show.
We also see Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) from time to time in flashbacks, after all.
If she’s not alive, folks,”If she’s not alive, folks: nobody’s ever really gone,”nobody’s ever really gone. “I mean, we see that with Jack. So there’s nothing to worry about either way.”
What is next for Kate in season 5 of ‘This Is Us’?
Why is a spinoff of ‘This Is Us’ impossible when the NBC series ends?
The character still has plenty of stories to tell, whether Kate survives or dies at the end of ‘This Is Us.’ In the Jan. 5 Season 5 episode, Kate announced that after getting pregnant with her abusive ex-boyfriend Marc Marc, she had an abortion (Austin Abrams).
Kate questioned Marc after coming out with Toby about her experience. It seems now that Kate has reached a big turning point.
From all these particular events and scenes, we have seen her come out of fear and pain.
And now she’s like, ‘Oh! All right.
“In January 2020, Metz told Entertainment Weekly that all of these things led me to this point where I was strong enough to say, “This is a turning point in my life. “I really think it’s going to change it. I don’t see how it couldn’t.”
And one more thing: all of these. #ThisIsUs pic.twitter.com/woXRgDpCU5- This Is Us (@NBCThisisUs) January 6, 2021 In the meantime, Kate and Toby are seeking to accept season 5 of This Is Us.
They matched the couple with a woman called Ellie (Annie Funke) and it seemed like a good fit. Metz suggested, however, that the journey could still face a few obstacles.
The probability that the birth mother will hold the child is still there.
In different states, there are different rules,” Metz told Hollywood Life in January 2021. “I think there is a very fascinating budding friendship and link between Kate and Ellie.
But I think they’re probably both afraid to get close to each other because of the system and the circumstances.”
She continued, “As with everything in life, we want to trust people and we want to believe that they have our best interests in mind.
But you just never know about it.
