Will ‘Parenthood’ be renewed? TV critics offer positive predictions on season 6

Will “Parenthood” on NBC be cancelled? That question has fans who love the show wondering as they don’t know if the show will be renewed or canceled before the next season. NBC hasn't made an official announcement, but TV critics are weighing in. Many are suggesting that renewal of the show is only a matter of time. According to TV By the Numbers on Tuesday, the cancel index predicts a potential renewal for the scripted show. Adding credibility to the predictions by revealing what data the network could be looking at, it appears this show has a good chance to be back on the air next season. Fans definitely shouldn't think that the "Parenthood" season five finale will be the final show.

Taking into consideration of all the variables that television executives are reviewing, the critics are looking at ratings, the type of fans watching the show, social media and other elements like advertising interests. Adding it all up, it seems that NBC’s decision would be a simple choice as the fans truly want the show to return.

The Epoch Times on Tuesday, is also confirming that they believe the show will be renewed too. Based on the same criteria of the cancel index. Looking at all the data, it appears the decision makes sense for the network.

There needs to be a slot for “Parenthood” to return and the network seems to have a few hours free. NBC has cancelled "Welcome to the Family," "Season Saves the World," "Ironside" and "The Michael J. Fox Show." This is bad for the scripted shows that won’t return, but good for “Parenthood.”

Compared to ABC or CBS, the NBC network has not renewed that many prime time shows. It has carefully considered what is the best for their audience and only a handful are set to film for the fall including "The Blacklist," "Chicago Fire," "Chicago PD," "Grimm" and "Parks & Recreation."

The big question for “Parenthood” fans is how long with they need to wait before a final decision will be announced by the network? Hopefully not too long as the viewers don’t like being kept in suspense.
