NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt was full of announcements during the 2014 TCA winter press tour panel, including that “Parks and Recreation” is all but renewed and “Celebrity Apprentice 7” is casting now.
With “Parenthood,” the Peacock’s critically acclaimed family drama, Greenblatt was similarly full of praise — but did not say for sure whether the show will be renewed for Season 6. He does point out that it’s doing better in a very hard timeslot than a number of other shows have done for NBC.
“It’s a show we love and it’s doing really well, creatively — and we love [creator] Jason Katims,” says Greenblatt. “Everything’s relative, but it’s actually done better on Thursday at 10 than several things we’ve had there in the past year, year and a half. So I’m hopeful we can get it to another season. A lot will have to do with development [of new shows] and other factors.”
Take heart, fans! Hopefully “Parenthood” will return for a sixth season.
