NBC has already renewed Chicago Fire, renewed Law & Order SVU and Revolution, but now it also renewed Parenthood for a new season slated for the television year of 2013 – 2014. And to think that this show was once a bubble show… now it´s steadily making it, and has established as a bonafide strong outing for NBC.
“Parenthood,” adapted from the 1989 feature film, examines the colorful Braverman family, and all its foibles and triumphs. The series is executive produced by Oscar winners Ron Howard and Brian Grazer (“A Beautiful Mind,” “Frost/Nixon”), Emmy winner Jason Katims (“Friday Night Lights”) and Lawrence Trilling (“Pushing Daisies”). The series is produced by Universal Television and Imagine Entertainment.
“Parenthood” grew this season versus last by 8 percent in adults 18-49 (to a 2.8 rating from a 2.6) and also increased by 8 percent year-to-year in total viewers (7.1 million vs. 6.6 million). This season’s last seven “Parenthood” telecasts beat both the ABC and CBS drama competition in the time period in 18-49.
The renewal order for Parenthood for next season will consist of 22 more episodes added, bringing the show closer to syndication.
