‘Parenthood’ to be revived for season 7
Jason Katims’ dream of reviving ‘Parenthood’ for season 7 is finally going to be true. Rumours have it that the NBCU and Jason are back into the drawing-room for carving out yet another round of gripping comedy.
Back in 2015, while talking to “E Online” about the reunion, Jason said, “I totally would do a reunion. Look, I’ve been down this road with ‘Friday Night Lights’. We did make an effort to find a way to keep that going, and ultimately, it just wasn’t going to work. But with ‘Parenthood’, I think something is intriguing with it. Because I want to know where this family is in three years or five years. I want to see what Max is like in his first job. I want to see where these people are down the road. But a million things have to come together in terms of getting all of these people available at the same time. And what’s the right context of it all. I love the idea of doing a reunion movie like ‘Boyhood’, where every year, everybody commits a week to do this project. Maybe it’s not that crazy to think that we could pull something like that off. When the time comes, I’ll start picking up the phone and calling these people”.
Fans read his interview and tears were rolling down in anticipation and excitement for season 7. Years passed, and nothing happened. All our hopes dashed with each passing year. And then came 2020, a year that otherwise brought turmoil around the world with the pandemic. Jason and NBC decided to put wheels to ‘Parenthood’ so that it starts rolling with season 7. It is a season of reunions after all!
Was ‘Parenthood’ a copy of ‘Modern Family’?
Tears start rolling when we think about the last five minutes of ‘Parenthood’. ‘Parenthood’ was never a pulse-pounding story. It was about the tiny moments between the loved ones, the conversations when no one’s watching. One show that ‘Parenthood’ is often compared with is ‘Modern Family’.
Ken Tucker of “Entertainment Weekly” once wrote, “‘Parenthood’ isn’t better than ‘Modern Family’, but it’s different— it’s its creation, thanks to the deft touch and careful characterizations developed by executive producer Jason Katims and his writers”.
‘Modern Family’ rested on comedy and offered some moments of emotional drama here and there. On the other hand, ‘Parenthood’ was like a warm blanket cocooning you, comforting you and sometimes tickling you. The moment of Kristina and Adam telling Max that he has a syndrome is in the list of TV Guide’s Top TV Moments.
Now that ‘Parenthood’ is soon going to be back with season 7, it is time to go through that warmth, feel that connection, again. Let’s find out when ‘Parenthood’ will launch its seventh segment.
Release date updates of ‘Parenthood’ Season 7
News of NBCU launching season 7 of ‘Parenthood’ on the newly launched streaming platform Peacock is doing the rounds. There’s no smoke without fire. And because Jason had hinted that he is interested in the reunion, we can expect that seventh segment of the hit, comic drama to be on its way.
Neither NBC nor Jason has officially announced the reboot of ‘Parenthood’ for season 7. If there’s any truth in the rumours, we can predict the release date by going through their filming and premiere history. Following the release pattern, we can expect the release of the ‘Parenthood’ Season 7 in September 2021, at the earliest.
