Parenthood: NBC Series Gets Third Season Renewal

Parenthood season threeWe reported yesterday that NBC was working on renewing Parenthood for a third season. The deal is apparently done now, ensuring that the Braverman family will be back in primetime next season. There hasn’t been official confirmation about how many episodes have been ordered yet.

The renewal is actually a no-brainer, especially considering the state of the rest of NBC’s schedule. Parenthood has lost viewers over the last couple seasons but still ranks as the second-highest rated drama on the the network. This season has averaged a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 5.34 million viewers.

Loosely based on a 1989 movie of the same name, Parenthood stars Bonnie Bedelia, Craig T. Nelson, Dax Shepard, Erika Christensen, Lauren Graham, Mae Whitman, Max Burkholder, Miles Heizer, Monica Potter, Peter Krause, Sam Jaeger, Sarah Ramos, and Savannah Rae.

NBC will officially unveil the new 2011-12 schedule to advertisers on Monday but will give reporters a preview on Sunday. Be user to bookmark and visit our NBC cancel/renew page to keep up with the latest comings and goings.

What do you think? How could NBC help Parenthood get more viewers? Would you change the show, maybe get rid of some characters?

    We really enjoy this show and the marriage at the end of this season was a real plus. This is agreat series for Parents and young adults. Please keep it renewed as this is one series we really look forward to every week. Reminds me of how people sayed home on Friday nights years ago to watch Dallas and Falcon Crest on CBS. Revenge on ABC and Parenthood are the two best series. Would like to see Parenthood on a Thursday or Friday night.
