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.
It seemed like a treat when Parenthood returned early from its winter hiatus at the start of January, but as of tonight, the series' fourth season is out of episodes. Parenthood's Season 4 finale airs tonight, after which we'll be left to hope that the show will return for Season 5. And in the meantime, we'll have Smash to enjoy on Tuesday nights, come February.
Parenthood only just returned from its brief winter hiatus a few weeks ago and it's already wrapping up for the season. The promo for next week's "Because You're My Sister" reminds us that the episode that airs next Tuesday night will be the last for Season 4, after which we'll have to hope that the show pops up on NBC's 2013-2014 schedule for its fifth season. I'm hopeful that it will, but we'll see. In the meantime, check out the promo for the Season 4 finale.
Parenthood delivered a top notch episode last night. Perhaps the best of the season, really, with each section of the Braverman family facing their own battles, and some coming out more successful than others. With just two episodes left in the season, anything can happen, and there's a lot set up to be resolved or to crumble, depending on what the writers have planned for this family.
The promo for Parenthood's "Small Victories" episode emphasizes the major drama about to befall Sarah's son Drew. The new clips we have to show you focus on other people in the Braverman family. While Julia is dealing with some issues with Victor, Crosby's trying to adjust to changes at home.
Parenthood has never shied away from emotional topics. In fact, the show tends to shine brightest when it's focusing on the more intensely emotional challenges of the Braverman family. The preview for next week's "Small Victories" gives us a look at the next major issue set to be faced by one of the lead characters.
NBC's wasting no time getting back into the swing of things in the new year. The network is bringing Parenthood back from the hiatus tomorrow night for the first of the final four episodes of Season 1. From the clips that have made their way online, there are some major family matters and emotional topics set to be dealt with. But it's Parenthood, so that's not exactly a spoiler. But there are spoilers ahead! So read and watch the videos ahead at your own risk!
