The family drama followed the lives of the Berkeley-based Braverman clan. The cast included Bonnie Bedelia, Joy Bryant, Tyree Brown, Max Burkholder, Erika Christensen, Lauren Graham, Miles Heizer, Sam Jaeger, Peter Krause, Xolo Mariduena, Craig T. Nelson, Monica Potter, Savannah Paige Rae, Dax Shepard, and Mae Whitman. The show ended in 2015 after six seasons.
While promoting his new CBS drama Pure Genius, Katims said he is interested in returning to Parenthood in the future:
I’d like to wait long enough so we can look at the family at a truly new stage. We already hinted at that with Mae Whitman’s character having a baby. But it would be cool if that baby got old enough to start telling Amber stories, with Amber as the mom as opposed to being the teenage kid. It’s amazing when you remember how young Amber was in the pilot. I’m also personally curious to see how Max does once he’s no longer a kid. That question resonates with me right now. It’s one thing to talk about people like Max when they’re kids — but what about when they grow up and they are still battling with tough issues? I truly don’t know if it will ever really happen. But it would just be fun. Seeing how Adam and Kristina are doing, Joel and Julia, Crosby and Jasmine, Sarah — you get used to being around them. They become like family. Of course, there are a ton of moving parts. The actors have very busy careers, busy lives — so finding a time when everyone is available and interested — that’ll be the challenge. But I always start with creative — when we feel like we have a great story to tell, we’ll start from there and see how far we get.”
