NBC released a new preview of their upcoming comedy About a Boy, giving us a look at Jason Katims' small screen adaptation of Nick Hornby's best-selling novel by the same name. David Walton plays Will Freeman, a one-hit-wonder rocker who's living off the royalties of his sole accomplishment and enjoying single life when Minnie Driver's Fiona and her adorable son Marcus (Benjamin Stockham) show up next door and turn his life upside down.
2013 has been a great year for television, so narrowing down our list of favorites was no easy task. As TV Blend has numerous writers with varying tastes in TV shows, we decided to go solo this year in sharing our Top 5 lists of the best series of 2013. This is Jessica's list, which begins with...
With Jason Ritter set to star opposite a different Gilmore Girl in Fox’s upcoming new drama Us & Them, the fate of Parenthood’s Sarah and Mark seemed pretty much sealed. Ritter’s Parenthood character exited the series last season, but apparently, we haven’t seen the last of him, as he’s set to guest star later this season.
Between Scandal and Parenthood, it seems like election season is still in full swing on Thursday nights. For the NBC drama, Kristina’s mayoral race is heating up and the preview for next week’s “The Ring” suggests she’s considering going negative. But this is only after Bob Little takes a shot at her and Adam. By the way, what exactly is going on in that news article Heather shows Kristina?
The Bravermans are back! And you want to stop reading now if you didn't watch last night's Season 5 premiere, as we're about to get into spoiler territory. The above video gives us a look ahead at what's coming up this season, and after last night's episode, which introduced a number of exciting developments, the biggest of which may be Amber's engagement to Ryan! Of course, there's also Kristina's campaign, the new baby for Crosby and Julia's work situation, or lack thereof.
Like last night, tonight's primetime line-up features a number of premieres, but most of them are returning shows. It's a big night for comedy, as CBS brings back The Big Bang Theory and debuts The Crazy Ones, while NBC brings Parks and Recreation back along with the premiere of The Michael J. Fox Show. Thursday night also marks the return of Glee, Parenthood, Grey's Anatomy and Elementary.
The early preview for the new season is chock full of action, but since NBC hasn’t been overly boisterous with its Parenthood promotions, it feels to me like this is only the tip of the iceberg for the new season, which should be full of new plotlines, thanks to NBC signing on for a full 22-episode order. You won’t have too long to wait to find out.
Parenthood is returning to NBC’s schedule this fall, and for a full season order at that. That’s extremely exciting news for fans, but the more exciting news in this intimate new trailer for Season 5 are the high moments for our characters shown in the short new teaser for the series. Anyone who has seen an episode of Parenthood before knows we often get to see characters like Adam, Sarah, Crosby, Amber, and Jasmine make plenty of mistakes.
If you're a fan of Friday Night Lights who also happens to watch Parenthood, you may have noticed that Jason Katims has a tendency to bring actors from his previous series over to the current one. It's likely how we got Michael B. Jordan, Minka Kelley and Matt Lauria, among others. And soon we can add Jurnee Smollett, another FNL beauty who's been cast to play a role in the NBC drama series.
Parenthood is adding two familiar faces as guest stars for its upcoming fifth season. The Office's David Denman and Lost's Sonya Walger have both signed on to play roles in the family-focused NBC drama. For Denman, it's an arc involving Julia and for Walger, it's a spot opposite Julia's husband Joel. Is there cause to worry about the future of Julia and Joel's marriage here? Possibly…
Parenthood is returning for a fifth season on NBC, but the lineup will look a little bit different, thanks to at least one fan favorite actor moving on to a new project. Even though Mark Ritter is leaving the series, most of the main cast and a few newish characters will be returning to the series, and on Friday it was announced that Matt Lauria will absolutely be returning to the show.
Good news, Ray Romano fans! Or more specifically, those Parenthood fans who loved the actor as occasionally grumpy photographer Hank in the NBC drama. Romano has signed on to return to the series for Season 5, which means there may be hope for Sarah and Hank yet!
Despite Ryan’s difficulties in adjusting back to everyday life after his Army stint, he and Amber are actually a really believable and interesting romance and I really, really hope we’ll be seeing more of that dynamic. The show really achieves a sense of balance from their perspectives.
A day ahead of their upfront presentation, NBC has posted their 2013-2014 schedule, which lays out where most of the new and returning series will air throughout the week come next fall. A few notable schedule changes appear to be taking place, including a move to Wednesdays for Revolution and a shift to Thursdays for Parenthood. Absent from the list is Community, but NBC did include it among the scripted series confirmed to return, so it will be back. It's just a matter of when.
Whether or not the lights come back on in Revolution remains to be seen, but either way, NBC won't be turning the lights out on this series anytime soon. Revolution was among the five dramas NBC renewed today for next season. Also set to return are Grimm, Parenthood, Chicago Fire, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
