Parenthood returns tonight and its fourth season premiere finds the Braverman clan united as they attempt to have a family portrait taken by a cantakerous photographer played by Ray Romano. The photographer, however, joins the cast plays a pivotal role in this season’s storylines involving Sarah (Lauren Graham), who is engaged as the season begins. Matt Lauria (Friday Night Lights) will have a recurring role on the show as well.
This season will showcase the first year of marriage between Crosby (Dax Shepard)and Jasmine (Joy Bryant) while Adam (Peter Krause) and Kristina (Monica Potter) send Haddie (Sarah Ramos) off to college. Joel (Sam Jaeger) and Julia (Erika Christensen) will adopt a child.
Often called an underdog, NBC’s Parenthood remains one of my favorite television shows and there is hardly anything like it on the air. It’s definitely a welcome event and a sign that fall is on the way and with it a new brew of returning and new shows to the airwaves.
