The NBC drama's extended holiday production hiatus due to Los Angeles County's surging COVID-19 infection rate has resulted in the yanking of tonight's episode, which is now scheduled to air on Feb. 2. "No new episode of #ThisIsUs tonight - Covid-related production delays in LA have forced us to delay a few weeks," tweeted creator Dan Fogelman. "But the next few are big ones, and we are close, so we hope you'll hang in there with us. Sorry!" No word yet on when the next original This Is Us episode will air. As Variety notes, This Is Us "appears to be the first scripted program to push an air date due to the extended break. It is highly possible the air dates of other shows will be impacted in the near future." Deadline adds that "the delay is believed to be about a week and a half."
