Some great news today for fans of NBC's Parenthood. The network has renewed the drama for a fourth season, allowing its loyal viewers to breathe a sigh of relief.
Considered on-the-bubble for renewal by many, the show actually didn't perform too badly in its 10:00pm Tuesday night time slot. It often held its own against competition such as Body of Proof and Unforgettable, regularly outperforming the former in the key adults 18-49 demographic.
15 new episodes have been ordered for Season 4, and while no premiere date has been announced, a mid-September return seems likely.
