The Bravermans have cheated death yet again.
NBC has renewed odds-defying drama Parenthood for a 13-episode sixth (and, yes, final) season.
The 11th-hour pickup comes after the network — looking to trim costs on the very expensive series — closed new deals with the principal cast that will have them appearing in 11 of the 13 episodes.
Per NBC’s just-released fall schedule, Parenthood is staying put on Thursday at 10/9c. (Click here for NBC’s complete fall sked).
