"Parenthood" Season 5 Episode 1 Premiere SPOILERS: Are Joel and Julia Getting a Divorce? / Premiere Date Thursday, September 26, 2013 [PROMO TRAILER] [WATCH ONLINE]
"Parenthood" is back for the season 5 episode 1 premiere this evening and the cast is as exciting and real as ever. Watch tonight as Joel and Julia struggle through a rough patch in their marriage and as Kristina battles with breast cancer. Show creator Jason Katims says, "To me, it sort of works to make the first couple of episodes tend to be a little bit lighter because you are ramping up and starting a lot of new stories. It seems like after a few episodes, the more dramatic aspects of the show tend to kick in. I feel like we tell these stories in an organic way, like we don't do a story where - oh, our kid is diagnosed with Asperger's and it's a four-episode arc. It's part of the show and continues to be part of the show through the life of the show."
One of the lighter notes that Katims mentions occurs in the season 5 premiere. Amber and Ryan are going to be getting during season 5. "Parenthood" star Mae Whitman is extremely excited about the wedding. She said, "I think it's such a gift to be on a TV show that people change and people grow and you feel like people have learned things and changed directions and taken on a path. I think people who knew Amber when she was 16 or 17, there were a lot of different guys and a lot of darkness... always the same story. All of a sudden out of nowhere comes this completely different guy. He's so different and quiet and strong. They really bring things out in each other that are really beautiful to watch... I love the idea of her having a partner."
The season 5 premiere of "Parenthood" debuts tonight at 10 PM EST on NBC. Check out the promo teaser trailer for the season 5 premiere!
