'Parenthood' Revival Will Likely Happen in the Future

If you’re still reeling from the end of NBC’s Parenthood, don’t worry, there is still hope.

Series creator Jason Katims more or less confirmed that a revival will likely happen at some point!

“There’s nothing happening right now, but when the time is right I would love to revisit it,” Jason told “It would start at the moment when I feel like I have a story to tell. But the whole thing about Parenthood is the kids get a little older and their lives change and then there’s more story to tell. I feel like that will happen at some point. And then it will be a question of, logistically, can we get the actors [back together] at the same time? And then we have to [find an outlet] that wants to [air] it.”
