Tv Season Info

The sixth and final season of this family drama is all about life-changing events for the Braverman clan, including a battle with health issues for Zeek (Craig T. Nelson). Some of the Bravermans reexamine important relationships in their lives: Amber (Mae Whitman) and Ryan (Matt Lauria) face several tough decisions about their future; and Hank (Ray Romano) and Sarah (Lauren Graham) ponder the depth of their commitment to one another. Meanwhile, Max (Max Burkholder) tries pursuing friendships and romance, and he learns about rejection along the way. On the work front, Adam (Peter Krause) and Kristina (Monica Potter) rush to open their new school; and Crosby deals with slow business at The Luncheonette. Former regular Sarah Ramos makes a return appearance as Haddie in the show's final episode.

Critic Reviews for Parenthood Season 6

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (12)

The writers opted to take most story lines where fans hoped they would go.

The show's creators have stealthily, quietly carved out a cast of characters who defy gender clichés, on both sides.

Top Critic

It's been the most sincere program on television, often mocked for its many scenes ending in tears, but never relenting in its goal to present parenthood as a difficult yet ultimately rewarding adventure.

Top Critic

The parents of Parenthood, who include old-school TV guy Ron Howard, can be proud of how the kid turned out.

Jan 29, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's this aspect of this show, the unwaveringly honesty depiction of family life, whether triumphant or tragic, that makes Parenthood so relatable to so many.

Top Critic

The writers' decision to go full cheeseball ending shouldn't have been surprising, after the show spent its last year turning into a frustrating shadow of itself.

Feb 20, 2019 | Full Review…

The whole finale is fantasy camp, but that's just the way it had to be.

Feb 21, 2019 | Full Review…

This was a standout show that produced a standout finale.

Feb 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Because Howard and longtime producing partner Brian Grazer are at the helm, Parenthood seems to be getting the care and feeding it deserves -- and the cast is peppered with proven performers who can deliver the goods.

Feb 14, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Parenthood is one of the most frustrating shows I've ever loved.

Mar 12, 2015 | Full Review…

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?"

Last night's premiere may not have been the typical tear jerker episode of Parenthood, but I did get a little weepy.

Audience Reviews for Parenthood: Season 6

  • May 20, 2018
    Oh did the producers not think people would notice that crosby’s Baby was white in season 5 and black in season 6??
  • Aug 01, 2016
    The beauty of parenthood is that everyone wished to have on their own a family like Braverman .
  • Jun 18, 2015
    Not worth watching if you have to view it on Hulu with all their commercials. Every 7 minutes, there are 4 or 5 commercials. Point of interest; How did a baby who was white in the 5th episode turn black in the 6th?

    I wish it hadn't ended! I would go on watching this show forever. It had amazing potential to keep going and going. Like 12 seasons or something. I adore the characters and the show is so real life situations. I love it!
  • Jan 06, 2015
    WHY DOES THIS AMAZING SHOW HAVE TO END?!? I will have NOTHING after Parenthood is over!
  • Jan 05, 2015
    I absolutely love it! This is one of the best shows I've seen in a long time. It's got real life stories that make me laugh and then 5 min later it will make me cry. Amazing actors and scripts. Brilliantly balanced, I just love it. I could watch it everyday.

    Words can’t describe how outstanding this show is. What makes this television show so phenomenal is that the director incorporates multiple types of parenting problems and how each parent decides to handle them. Their problems are relatable because the characters aren’t made to be perfect; they make mistakes, just like everyone else. The parallels between the show and non-Hollywood families engages those watching and makes them feel like part of the Braverman family. Full of emotion and humor, it all comes together to create a fantastically directed show leading the audience itching to know what happens in the next episode.
  • Oct 12, 2014
    One of the best shows on TV...ever.
