Fall TV 2014: NBC Renews Parenthood for Sixth and Final Season

May 11, 2014

Parenthood, NBC’s venerable family drama has always been a “bubble” show. And, once again, negotiations were down to the wire for their renewal for a sixth and final 13-episode season. It’s a double-edged sword for large ensemble shows like Parenthood – it’s well-written, they have a great cast, everyone is doing stellar work… but that also makes it highly expensive, with each passing season as the actors are paid their worth, the writers receive their due, etc. According to reports, the principal cast members have agreed to appear in 11 of the 13 episodes; in effect, they’re all taking pay cuts. The show will continue to air against Scandal on Thursday nights at 10PM EST.
