Can you believe it's been 10 years since Parenthood first aired?! (10 years, 6 months, 18 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Parenthood end?
When Parenthood came to an end after 5 years in January 2015, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Kristina Braverman (Monica Potter). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Parenthood reunion disappoint people?
Parenthood aired from 2010-2015 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Potter said she's not sure if Parenthood would work today. “I don't want to see old Kristina Braverman,” she told a journalist (Potter turned 49 in June). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” she added.
Still hoping for a Parenthood movie?
In a recent interview, Dax Shepard (who played Crosby Braverman) said he can't imagine a Parenthood reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Joy Bryant (who played Jasmine Braverman) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Parenthood movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Parenthood film, Mae Whitman stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Parenthood reboot?
Recasting Parenthood for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a Parenthood reunion, a Parenthood movie, or a Parenthood reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
