Parenthood's Upcoming Death: "We're All Afraid of it," Monica Potter Admits

24 minutes ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

"Kleenex will be happy! Invest now, get some stock for sure." That was Monica Potter's answer when we asked her just how many boxes of tissues Parenthood fans are going to need to get through the final season. After inviting us to their family dinners, fights and struggles for six seasons, the Braverman clan is readying for their final goodbye, and Potter told E! News it's been an emotional experience on the set of the NBC drama.  "It's sad. It is sinking in. I think a lot of us are reminiscing about the years we've spent together," she said. "We've seen each other through a lot of hard times and great times. We've had babies on the show and real life. »

'Maze Runner 2' Casts Rosa Salazar in Key Female Role

30 September 2014 2:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Actress Rosa Salazar has signed on for a major role in the 20th Century Fox sequel The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, which is currently in pre-production.

The actress will play Brenda, who meets Dylan O'Brien's Thomas while they're both using tunnels under the city to flee from their pursuers, after Thomas and his group have escaped from The Glade. In The Maze Runner, there was only one female in Thomas' group, Teresa (Kaya Scodelario), and in the follow-up, Brenda is the only girl in her clan. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Thomas, "will find himself in a potential love triangle," when Brenda comes into the picture.

We reported last week that Game of Thrones star Aidan Gillen has signed on the play the villainous Janson, the highest-ranking member of the evil organization Wicked after Chancellor Ava Paige (Patricia Clarkson).

New Gotham Promo Features Victor Zsaz, Arkham Asylum And Scarecrow

29 September 2014 4:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The new Fox Batman prequel series Gotham divided both critics and fans with last week’s premiere, but I actually liked it a lot and am excited to see where the show goes from here. As I said in my review, the pilot wasn’t perfect, but it effectively laid the groundwork for what could prove to be an excellent series - if the writers and showrunners play their cards right.

The second episode, titled “Selina Kyle,” airs tonight, but a new promo for the rest of the season has already been released. The trailer clocks in at a hefty two minutes and thirty seconds, and it fills each second of screentime with cool Easter eggs and exciting gems for diehard Bat-fans.

Most notable among them are the appearances of serial killer Victor Zsasz (played by Parenthood and The Forgotten actor Anthony Carrigan), up-and-coming mob boss Sal Maroni (Dexter‘s »

Parenthood: Season Six Ratings

26 September 2014 1:11 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Despite mediocre and poor ratings, Parenthood managed to escape being cancelled for years. But now, NBC has decided to end the show with season six. Will the ratings rise in the final year or will they drop even lower? Will they regret the decision? Stay tuned.

Parenthood follows the lives of the extended Braverman family in Northern California. The large ensemble cast includes Bonnie Bedelia, Joy Bryant, Tyree Brown, Max Burkholder, Erika Christensen, Lauren Graham, Miles Heizer, Sam Jaeger, Peter Krause, Xolo Mariduena, Craig T. Nelson, Monica Potter, Savannah Paige Rae, Dax Shepard, and Mae Whitman.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am »

Season premiere review: 'Parenthood' - 'Vegas'

26 September 2014 6:25 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Parenthood" began its final season last night, and I have a review of the premiere coming up just as soon as we literally watch paint dry... "This family is sick. Sick!" -Adam Let's get the stupidity out of the way quickly, because otherwise, "Vegas" was a damn fine start to this concluding season, loaded with dust-inducing scenes and promising starts to new story arcs: It is roughly an eight-hour drive from San Francisco to Las Vegas, yet Adam and Crosby decide to go from the Luncheonette to Zeek and Sarah's hotel like it's a quick trip to the grocery store, and succeed in getting there about that quickly. That's just dumb — even Zeek mentions having flown when he returns to Camille near the end of the episode — and the sort of thing that makes sense if the characters all live where the show is written rather than where it's set. »

Parenthood, Ep. 6.01, “Vegas” a sure-footed start to the final season

25 September 2014 9:22 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Parenthood, Season 6, Episode 1, “Vegas”

Written by Jason Katims

Directed by Lawrence Trilling

Airs Thursdays at 10pm Est on NBC

This week, on Parenthood: Sarah and Zeek go to Vegas, Max takes one for the team, and Ruby is a teenager

Parenthood begins its final season by picking up almost exactly where season five left off. “Vegas” may take place months after “The Pontiac” but for the most part, everyone is in the same place. Amber is indeed pregnant, with Ryan still out of the picture, Kristina is launching her school, and Zeek and Camille are happy in their new home. The only surprise Katims and co. throw the audience is Julia’s new office fling, which may become something more. It’s a surprising move given where the last season ended, but a not unwelcome one.

Most of this premiere functions as a restatement of the characters’ relationships and perspectives, »

Parenthood Season 6 Premiere Recap: What Happened in Vegas?

25 September 2014 8:47 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“We’re like… old. We’re real-life grown-ups, dude.”

That piece of wisdom, courtesy of Amber Holt on Thursday’s season premiere of Parenthood, just about sums up the NBC dramedy’s return.

The first hour of Parenthood’s final season found the Braverman clan dealing with a number of thoroughly grown-up changes, all of them eliciting reactions ranging from, “How could she?!” to “Can someone pass the Kleenex?” Read on for a recap of “Vegas,” then tell us what you thought of the episode.

Parenthood Season 6 Premiere Recap: The Collapse

25 September 2014 8:24 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This is where Parenthood begins to leave us. The sixth and final season of the series about the cross-talkiest family in recent TV history began with an episode focused less on tear-jerking and more on story arc set-up. Personally, I was okay with this. In the premiere (title: “Vegas”), the Parenthood writers laid the foundation for what’s ahead in a way that suggested episode one was just a prelude to what could be 12 weeks of verklemptiness, interrupted by occasional bouts of heavy sobbing. In other words: if you didn’t cry this week, not to worry. Jason Katims and co. were just building. And if they continue to do that properly, the tears will come. In lieu of über-emotional moments, this week’s Parenthood immediately and efficiently got right down to the business of explaining where our characters are at this moment in time, just a few months after »

Why ABC handed Thursdays to Shonda Rhimes: Because she gets it

25 September 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Why ABC handed Thursdays to Shonda Rhimes: Because she gets it Shonda Rhimes and her “ShondaLand” gets that social media is a key ingredient in promoting your show. But that’s not all. As Alexander Hardy notes, "With a decade of primetime hits and misses under her belt, Rhimes is a master at creating bustling content, hooking viewers emotionally, and assaulting the senses with just the right amounts the saccharine and the stomach turning. Her characters—whether gladiators, doctors, or otherwise—are cocktails made with equal parts ridiculous, despicable, and histrionic.” Plus: How much TV can Shonda conquer?, how Shonda Rhimes revolutionized gay characters, and play the “Tgit” drinking game. “Scandal” is back: Here are 4 hopes for new season Season 4 needs to have more Olivia, less Olitz. Plus: “Scandal” stars tease Season 4, how to talk like a Gladiator, how to design an Olivia Pope-style living room, and 10 cryptic teases for the new season. »

Parenthood Showrunner Jason Katims on the ‘Emotional’ Final Season and What’s in Store for the Bravermans

25 September 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

With Parenthood about to embark on its final season — NBC begins rolling out the 13 episodes tonight at 10 p.m. — members of Team Braverman may want to stock up on facial tissues and brace themselves for some seriously ugly cries ahead. Showrunner Jason Katims, in an interview with Vulture earlier this week, said he expects this to be “the most emotional season of the show.” Katims — who got his start as a writer on My So-Called Life, helmed Friday Night Lights, and also serves as showrunner on NBC’s About a Boy — talked to us about rumors that there will be a potential loss in the Braverman family, the controversial separation of previously “perfect” couple Joel and Julia, and the moments in the series that have left him, the guy in charge of all the lump-in-the-throat drama, just as weepy as those of us watching at home.For the audience, »

'Parenthood's' Jason Katims: Final Season Will Explore Mortality in a New Way

25 September 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Grab the Kleenex and prepare to say farewell to the Bravermans. NBC will say goodbye to Parenthood this season with a truncated 13-episode final run that will see the Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights) series tackle subjects that the family drama has yet to explore during its five previous seasons. As Parenthood did with Kristina's breast cancer arc, one central storyline will be the driving force of season six, impacting everyone in the rapidly growing Braverman clan in different and surprising ways. The return of Breaking Bad's Betsy Brant as Hank's ex-wife will bring on a blended family

Our Hopes and Dreams for the Final Season of 'Parenthood'

25 September 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Parenthood" fans, the time has come. The 6th and final season premiere of the beloved Braverman saga airs Thursday, September 25 and we couldn't be sorrier to prepare to see this fantastic TV family ride off into the Berkeley sunset.

We left off with a lot of uncertainty -- Joel and Julia's separation, Amber's possible pregnancy (though it looks pretty positive in this promo), Hank and Sarah's future, and the sale of Zeek and Camille's home were the major story lines we're all looking to get some answers about.

But what if we could decide how this family drama ends? Here are our hopes and dreams for "Parenthood''s final season. Do you agree?

Hank and Sarah Make It Work

Apologies to all those Mr. Cyr diehards out there (we know! he's great!), but it would be lovely to see Hank and Sarah end up together. Their chemistry is unparalleled and »

"I still can confirm nothing and deny everything," she tells TVGuide.com. "I know the feeling of getting a spoiler that ruins something that you really truly love and ...

Hulu Announces Stephen King’s 11/22/63 Series Order

23 September 2014 5:44 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Hulu‘s original content doesn’t get the attention it deserves, but things may change soon as Stephen King and J.J. Abrams join the mix. They’ve announced a series order for the nine-episode event based on King’s 11/22/63. The alt-history novel that surrounds the Kennedy assassination is not only a great story, and one that King himself believes fits the format, it will be an interesting series that may open some doors.

There are a lot of alt-history works that I’d like to see, whether as series or films, and something has to sell the genre to the money people. Plus, Hulu has several fantastic shows, and you don’t hear enough about them. Maybe something that has a lot of roads to attention will pull in a big range of new potential Hulu fans, who will then check out more content.

Monica Potter Talks Parenthood's Goodbye: We Have "Many, Many Thoughts About Spinoffs"

22 September 2014 2:40 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's the eve of Parenthood's last season - a fact Monica Potter, who plays Kristina Braverman, still hasn't quite accepted. The cast and crew were just about a week into shooting the final episodes of the NBC drama when I stopped by the set. Monica took a seat next to me on the couch in the Bravermans' house after wrapping a scene, settling in as comfortably as she might in her own living room. "I have hope that we'll come back next year," the actor says. "And I'm the only ding-dong walking around saying that. I just . . . I don't know." It's not hard to understand why Monica feels a little reluctant to let go. After more than four years as Kristina, she's seen her character through her teen daughter's coming out, a run for mayor, and even breast cancer; that storyline eerily corresponded to Monica's own irregular mammogram in »
