    Great news for Parenthood. Such a underrated gem of a show.

  • Nicole

    awesome for Parenthood.. season 5 has got to be locked in by now. This show is great, and so no appreciated.

  • Liam

    Its great NBC is finally praising Parenthood for the great show it has been for the last 4 seasons. Parenthood has always been getting the short end of the stick from NBC and this year the ratings have been brilliant, beating both ABC and CBS most weeks. Hopefully next week the show will get a season high and then they will announce season 5.

  • Even Steven

    If NBC have any sense, they will renew Parenthood for a 24-episode run next season instead of 15 episodes.

  • Kram

    Go On, The New Normal and Parenthood shall all be renewed.

  • Nate

    I am mr normal, if I want a red truck then so does everyone else, the price would be high and there would be none around. If I want to eat at the local steak house, the line is out the door. So, if the NBC Network folks read this at all I hope they know the silent majority of men and women my age (50+)can all relate and draw parellels in their own lives. I love this show and the examples it sets for how to deal with adversity. I know its a ratings game but I have even gone to the point of buying what is advertised on the show.. I now have all Apple products!!

    Parenthood is such a fabulous show…the last show of the season seemed to wrap up everyones hopes. Does this mean we will not see the Braverman family again. I hope not. This show is realistic and warm hearted. No violence, just honest family problems, acted so well by a group of talented actors,especially all the young adults and children.

    KEEP THIS SHOW ON THE AIR NBC

    When will we know if there will be a 5th season?
