A former character is coming back to the fifth season of This Is Us in the new episodes. Austin Abrams, who played a recurring character in the fourth season, is reportedly returning to the show. The Dash and Lily actor debuted as Marc, Kate’s (Hannah Zeile) teenage boyfriend in the 90s and her first love. They met at a record shop where Marc worked and bonded over their love for music.
Things took a dark turn when Marc turned out to be a toxic boyfriend, who used Kate’s weight to feed into her insecurities. He started controlling her and even verbally abused her by calling her “fatface”. They had run off to the Pearson cabin where he became even more emotionally manipulative. Their relationship ended when Kate’s mother Rebecca and her brother Randall and Kevin came to her rescue.
The fans will have to wait and see what Abram’s character will be up to in the fifth season of This Is Us. Unfortunately for the fans, the wait for new episodes will be a bit longer. Season five premiered on October 27th and aired four episodes before it went on the winter hiatus. No official date has been announced for the return of the series but it is rumored that the fifth episode might release on January 5th, 2021.
Meanwhile, Austin Abrams has had a busy year as two of his movies came out in the past six months. He was last seen in Netflix’s holiday movie Dash and Lily, where he played the lead role of Dash. Before that, he starred as Henry Page in the teenage romantic comedy Chemical Hearts, co-starring with Lili Reinhart.
This Is Us stars Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling. T. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson, Chris Sullivan, Ron Cephas Jones, Jon Huertas and others.
