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?

    A MUST KEEP! Love this show. Maybe change the time to 9pm as 10 might be too late for some? I don’t know but this is by far the best show on tv! Love it!

    I will be SO disappointed if you cancel my very favorite show. Don’t change it..i couldn’t ask for a more engaging show. I follow the characters and look forward to what happens to each of them. It’s an awesome show!

    I love this show! Please, please, please don’t cancel it. It is terrific just the way it is. Problem is, as I see it, the ABC Network put a new show on at same time, which is also good and has sparked viewers curiosity. Isn’t there always a WAR of the Networks like this which causes many of us to feel deep grief over our loss? Please hear our plea to continue Parenthood.

    Been wondering when we’ll see Parenthood again or why there’s no reruns. Soooooo glad it’s coming back. The one show I stay up late to watch even though I work really early in the mornings. All the characters are great and perfectly cast.
