With The Event on an extended hiatus, Jason Ritter suddenly has a lot of free time on his hands. Which is great news for Parenthood viewers.

TV Line confirms the actor will reprise his role as Lauren's love interest for one episode of the NBC drama this season.

“We’re very excited to have him back,” says producer Jason Katims. “Sarah comes to him for advice about something. It’s only a few scenes, but what’s nice about it is you see that they still have this amazing connection. They are great together.”

Might that advice have something to do with the return of Lauren's ex? As previously reported, John Corbett will come on board the show this season in that key, recurring role.
