Jason Katims is definitely open to the idea. A revival would involve a time jump that would age the characters on the series some. It would be a challenge, but he is definitely giving it some thought.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, he said:
“A million things have to fall into place for that to work, in terms of people’s schedules and getting somebody who is interested in putting that on and then figuring out what that would be. Would that be like one two-hour show or a series of episodes? I don’t know. There’s no active conversations about it now, but it’s something I’d be open to just because I think this show lends itself to doing that.”
Katims also teased a bit about how a seventh season would look if the series was revived.
“That would be a really interesting thing, to revisit Parenthood when Drew [Miles Heizer] has now graduated from college and Haddie [Sarah Ramos] has graduated from college and somebody, who knows, may be nearing retirement age. Stuff that gives us fodder for new stuff and things we haven’t explored before. Seeing [Jabbar and the kids] growing up would be really interesting.”
