"Parenthood" Season 5 has been ordered and will return in fall 2013.

"Parenthood" on NBC is a one-hour drama inspired by the box-office hit of the same name. This re-imagined and updated Universal Media Studios/Imagine Television production follows the trials and tribulations of the very large, very colorful and imperfect Braverman family.

Sarah Braverman (Lauren Graham, "Gilmore Girls") is a financially-strapped single mother trying to raise two teenaged kids, the bright but rebellious Amber (Mae Whitman, "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World") and sullen and sensitive Drew (Miles Heizer, "ER").

On the home front, Sarah and her kids live with Sarah's larger-than-life, headstrong father, Zeek (Craig T. Nelson, "Family Stone," "Coach"), and pillar-of-strength mother Camille, (Bonnie Bedelia, "Heart Like a Wheel"), who are continuously dealing with their own marital issues.

Meanwhile, Sarah's sister and complete antithesis, Julia (Erika Christensen, "Traffic") is a successful corporate attorney trying to juggle work and motherhood, alongside her loving but increasingly restless stay-at-home husband, Joel (Sam Jaeger, "Eli Stone").



Commitment-phobe Crosby (Dax Shepard, "Baby Mama"), Sarah's younger brother, is helping raise a five-year-old son he had out-of-wedlock with former flame Jasmine (Joy Bryant "Antwone Fisher").

However, it's Adam (Peter Krause, "Six Feet Under"), the oldest Braverman sibling, who has had to relinquish his expectations about what constitutes a "normal" family as he, his quietly forceful wife Kristina (Monica Potter, "Trust Me") and independent-minded teenage daughter, Haddie (Sarah Ramos, "American Dreams"), struggle to cope with their eccentric son and Haddie's little brother, Max (Max Burkholder, "Brother and Sisters"), who has Asperger's Syndrome.

Although each sibling and family has its own share of life and everyday challenges to grapple with, they still manage to be there for each other in their hours of need.

Serving as executive producers of "Parenthood" are Oscar winners Ron Howard and Brian Grazer ("A Beautiful Mind," "Frost/Nixon"), Jason Katims ("Friday Night Lights")—who wrote the pilot episode—and David Nevins ("Friday Night Lights," "Arrested Development").

i am so impressed with the fact that a show is attempting to educate the public regarding aspergers syndrome. so far it has been quite accurate and hopefully will continue to be. these children are so misunderstood. they are such loving children who just need extra care.
deb says:
I love the show, love seeing Craig T. Nelson again and Crosby is the most. Everyone plays believable parts. Can't wait for each new episode
gen says:
Ilove this show. I look forward to every show. This is a really good show.
alh says:
I am insulted by the bulk of tv sitcoms but this show is brilliant and I love it! I pray that they don't rip it off of the air like they did with the brilliant comedy of "Arrested Development".
lyn says:
I absolutely love this show! I would like to see an episode regarding boomers (Zeek and/or Camille's) parents. As the sandwich generation we are parenting our aging parents, helping with children & grand-children.

Got Parenthood spoilers? What did you think of the last show?
