The good news continues to pile up for NBC's 'Parenthood,' which (like the previous years) faced an uncertain prospect of renewal. Not only has the acclaimed drama been renewed for a full fifth season , but 'Parenthood' season 5 will also bring back Ray Romano, one its most popular guest stars, for another lengthy arc despite his apparent exit at the end of the previous season finale.
'Parenthood' has flown in somewhat under the radar of NBC shows, seemingly always on the bubble even as it makes it into its fourth season. Similarly, former 'Everybody Loves Raymond' star Ray Romano's last gig with 'Men of a Certain Age' on TNT didn't turn many heads, but drew plenty of critical acclaim. So, it makes sense to combine the two, right? Right?
