It took some negotiating and a compromise on all sides, but NBC‘s family drama Parenthood has secured a 13-episode final season. It will air in the fall, with the series returning to its Thursday 10 PM slot.
There was a brief standoff between the network and the cast over some cost-cutting measures that would’ve trimmed the actors’ overall compensation by reducing the number of episodes they appear in to 9, but in the end, a middle ground was reached and the acclaimed show, shepherded by Jason Katims, will get a proper ending. Parenthood‘s cast includes Peter Krause, Lauren Graham, Monica Potter, Erika Christensen and Dax Shepard.
