Julia confronts Joel on 'Parenthood': 'You destroyed us'

Last season, Parenthood fans watched as Joel and Julia’s marriage fell apart. Julia kissed Ed, Joel moved out, and suddenly, the happily married couple had stopped communicating. But in last week’s season 6 premiere, fans saw a glimmer of hope when Joel comforted a distraught Julia with a kiss.

However, after months of separation and emotional turmoil, one kiss isn’t going to fix their marriage. In fact, we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek at tomorrow night’s episode, in which Joel and Julia find themselves at Sydney’s school for a meeting with their daughter’s teacher, after which the exes have a tearful heart-to-heart.

9 p.m.
Watch: Scandal (ABC): Where in God’s name is Olivia Pope? That’s the question on everyone’s mind heading into tonight’s season 4 premiere, which picks up after the fixer fled D.C. for what seems to be a tropical locale with no shortage of wine.

'Parenthood': Your One-Minute Refresher

On Parenthood, which returns on Sept. 25 for its sixth and last season, the Bravermans have endured a lot over the years—like cancer, selling their childhood home, infidelity. But showrunner Jason Katims promises a drama-free final season.

Just kidding. Prepare yourself by stocking up on Kleenex and watching EW’s 60-second refresher video. READ FULL STORY

'Parenthood' gets FINAL season renewal

And finally, the last drama on the bubble for the 2013-14 season has a sort-of happy ending: NBC’s Parenthood will return for a sixth season. The not-good news for the fan-favorite family drama: Parenthood‘s order is for a 13-episode final season. NBC also announced that Parks and Recreation, which was already expected to return, will have its final season too (details).

The announcement was made as part of NBC’s fall schedule reveal, which you can find here.

The odds were ever in Parenthood‘s favor for a return in some fashion. Though the show only averaged 6.4 million viewers and a 2.3 rating among adults 18-49 this season, its lead-ins like The Michael J. Fox Show fared much worse, which made Parenthood‘s ability to kinda support a time period seem heroic, especially against one of the top-rated dramas on TV — ABC’s Scandal. READ FULL STORY

'Parks and Recreation' to end after season 7

Your days in Pawnee are numbered: NBC announced on Sunday that season 7 of Parks and Recreation will be its last. READ FULL STORY

'Parenthood' finale preview: Creator on Haddie's return, renewal chances

Parenthood closes out season 5 Thursday night with an episode that’s sure to be equal parts gut-punch and heartwarming — because, basically, both things are what you get with every episode of the show. In the preview for the finale that aired after last week’s penultimate episode, however, viewers learned there’s going to be at least one big surprise — an appearance from Haddie (Sarah Ramos), who has largely been absent from the main action while off at college and returns home with a female companion.

'Parenthood': Matt Lauria previews Ryan's emotional return (and a Luke Cafferty appearance?)

If the previews for this week’s penultimate episode of Parenthood tell us anything, it’s that we’re going to need even more tissues than normal. And a key factor in that tear-jerking equation is, of course, the return of fan favorite (and love of Amber’s life) Ryan.

Last we saw Ryan, he was re-enlisting after having come to the realization that he is and always will be a soldier. And as an effect of that decision, he and Amber broke off their engagement. But now, after weeks of Amber drowning her sorrows in ice cream and pot, Ryan is back. Even worse? He’s injured.

We don’t know much other than that, but we caught up with Matt Lauria to talk about Ryan’s reunion with Amber, his potential future on the show, and the theoretical appearance of his Friday Night Lights character Luke Cafferty (because why not?): READ FULL STORY

'About a Boy': Jason Katims, David Walton, and Minnie Driver talk new episodes, upcoming guest stars

When you’re really good at something, it’s easy to have an ego. Jason Katims is really good at taking films, like Friday Night Lights and Parenthood, and turning them into successful shows for NBC.

Luckily, Katims’ ego is in check and he’s moved over to the lighter side with the new comedy About a Boy, based on the 2002 film (which in turn was based on the Nick Hornby novel) about a man-child and the actual child he befriends next door. EW was at a special screening of two upcoming episodes of the series with Katims and stars David Walton and Minnie Driver. The trio talked about exciting guest stars for both FNL and Arrested Development fans, what else to expect for the remainder of the first season, and the creative benefits of working on television versus film.

'Friday Night Lights' and 'Parenthood' collide: Preview the first 'Luncheonette' webisode! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Crucifictorious is alive and well, my friends! And they’re coming to jam at … The Luncheonette?

That’s right! Jason Katims has combined the worlds of Friday Night Lights and Parenthood like they’re East and West Dillon. Welcome to Friday Night at the Luncheonette!

In the four-part digital companion series to Parenthood, viewers will get to see what Amber does after hours at the recording studio, which includes taking care of her cousin Max. But more importantly, it includes booking bands from Dillon, Texas (while wearing an East Dillon T-shirt).

EW has an exclusive sneak peek of part one, when Landry “Lance” Clarke (Jesse Plemons) brings Crucifictorious in for some band rehearsal. Spoiler: We know that Derek Phillips’ Billy Riggins will also make an appearance (and probably bring beer)!

Our only other wish — besides Matt Lauria showing up as Ryan’s twin brother, Luke — is for Tim Riggins to reprise his role as a fake fan of the band.

Watch the sneak peek below: READ FULL STORY

'About a Boy' to stage 'Parenthood' crossover

Parenthood’s Dax Shepard is going to visit NBC’s About a Boy — but don’t call it a guest spot.

In fact, Jason Katims, who executive produces both shows, says the cameo will be as under the radar as About a Boy star David Walton’s appearance on Parenthood last week, in which Walton’s character was a part of a poker game hosted by Shepard’s character. “The one that aired on Parenthood was so subtle because people don’t know [About a Boy] yet, but I kinda liked that — not say anything about it and putting it out there,” Katims said. “When Dax comes on to About a Boy it will be very different. It’s going to be a cameo. It won’t be what the episode is going to be about. We’re doing it in ways that feel real and organic to the shows.”

About a Boy, a half-hour comedy based on the book by Nick Hornby, premieres Feb. 22 after the Olympics. The crossover episode of Boy, which Katims predicted would be the only one to take place this season, does not yet have an airdate.

“I’ve never done anything like that before,” Katims said, ‘it seemed like a natural thing to do.”

The art of The Crossover is one NBC seems to be favoring these days. Chicago Fire and spin-off Chicago P.D. have shared characters in the past and will stage what executive producer Dick Wolf described during a panel at the Television Critics Association on Sunday as “a major crossover at the end of the season” that will involve both full casts. And Chicago P.D.’s Sophia Bush will head to Law and Order: SVU (another Wolf show) in an upcoming episode to work with Mariska Hargitay’s Olivia as well. “We’re looking at all aspects of this as to how all these shows can cross-pollinate each other,” Wolf said.

Here’s the trailer for About a Boy, starring Walton, Minnie Driver and Benjamin Stockham: READ FULL STORY

John Corbett to reprise role on 'Parenthood'

For Parenthood‘s Sarah Braverman (Lauren Graham), the ghosts of exes’ past will continue to reappear with the return of John Corbett. TV Guide reports that Corbett is slated to reprise his role as Seth Holt, Sarah’s ex-husband and Amber (Mae Whitman) and Drew (Miles Heizer)’s father, in an upcoming episode of the NBC dramedy. According to TV Guide, he will appear on episode 13, where Amber unexpectedly visits the restaurant in which he works and causes a scene with a fellow customer. Amber has been going through a tough time recently as her fiancé, Iraq War vet Ryan (Matt Lauria) was arrested for starting a fight with her colleague.

The last time audiences saw Seth was back in season 3, when he turned his life around and reconnected with Sarah and his children. A longtime drug addict and alcoholic, Seth, a musician, spent most of Amber and Drew’s childhood out of the picture as Sarah raised the kids largely on her own. Most recently, he left Berkeley, where the series is set, to start a new life in Tahoe, away from music and drugs.
