One of the biggest steps in this process is a trailer for the upcoming season, and while only in ‘teaser’ form at present, the family drama will hope what they say sets the tone for the 13-episode run, which will take the show (loosely based on a 1989 Ron Howard movie of the same name) to an end total of 6 seasons and 103 episodes.
Less than half a minute long, the trailer runs through a number of short clips from the upcoming lives of the ‘Braverman’ family, promising that it will be the most dramatic season of all, though some commenters have criticised the fact that a pregancy plot is blatantly revealed amidst the footage.
The narrator of the trailer states: “If you’ve ever watched Parenthood – it’s time to come home. In true Parenthood fashion, they’ve saved the best for last.”
The video description adds: “Get ready for the very best season of Parenthood, premiering Thursday, September 25 at 10/9c on NBC.”
Such a claim will probably be one for viewers and critics to decide, but will they be able to live up to their own-set expectations upon season premiere day in less than a month’s time?
