Parenthood Season 5: Who May Get Engaged?

by at . Comments

The cast of Parenthood gathered at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills yesterday, teasing reporters on the scene with a spoiler-filled Season 5 promo.

There was Kristina with a new haircut… Jasmine and Crosby with their new baby… and Amber and Ryan discussion marriage!

"It's a big decision to take a step like that when you're young and the things that come out after you make a choice like that and you start to feel settled I think would be interesting," Mae Whitman said of Ryan and Amber's possible engagement. "It's interesting to see how different questions come in in a relationship when you're adult and it's more serious…[to see] if they will grow together or separately." 

Sarah, meanwhile, will have a new apartment and a new job.

And, yes, Ray Romano will be back as Hank, but "this is a year of her wanting to figure out her life and figure our what her next step is in life and not be focused solely on a romantic relationship," teased creator Jason Katims.

Finally, viewers may need to be a “a little concerned” about Joel and Julia’s marriage, due to the arrival of two new characters played by Sonya Walger and David Denman.

"There's a major role reversal in the fact that these construction opportunities are suddenly coming his way and we're going to see the dynamic change quite a bit," Erika Christensen said. "Julia's still unemployed and not happy about it."

Parenthood Season 5 premieres on September 26 and there will be an eight month time jump on the premiere.

I am so glad NBC is bringing this show back. Please keep it on for a full season and not the stupid 10-12 it was last season.


This is an old school photo, from before the first season when Moira Tierney was Sarah.
I would love Amber and Ryan to get married. Not happy that they are having people come between Joel and Julia, one or both better not cheat!
