Parenthood was an American comedy-drama television series developed by Jason Katims and produced by Imagine Television and Universal Television. The first season premiered on March 2, 2010, on NBC.
Loosely based on the 1989 film of the same title "Parenthood" is the second adaptation of the film to air on television preceded by the 1990–91 television series.
The series ran for six seasons from March 2, 2010 to January 29, 2015.
It has been well received by television critics and earned several nominations and awards, including one Vision Award, a Critics' Choice Television Award, two Television Academy Honors awards, four Young Artist Awards, and three Entertainment Industries Council PRISM Awards.
Despite strong reviews, "Parenthood" never gained a strong audience; the pilot received the highest audience figures, with ratings declining thereafter.
On May 11, 2014, the show was renewed for a sixth and final season, consisting of 13 episodes. The final season premiered on September 25, 2014. The series finale aired on January 29, 2015.
"Parenthood" revolves around three generations of the Braverman family: the patriarch Zeek Braverman, the matriarch Camille Braverman, and the families of their four children Adam, Sarah, Crosby, and Julia. Adam is married to Kristina and they have children: Haddie, Max, and (later during the series) Nora.
Sarah is divorced and has two teen children, Amber and Drew. Crosby has a son Jabbar with girlfriend Jasmine (they marry in Season 3) and later a daughter Aida. Julia is married to Joel and has a daughter Sydney and (later in the series they adopt) a son Victor.
