There's good news and bad news for fans of NBC's Parenthood. The good news? Parenthood will be back for season 4. The bad news? NBC has only ordered 15 more episodes.

Love Parenthood? Hate it? Rate it!

That doesn't mean the season won't be extended but compare season 4's episode order to previous seasons:

  • Season 1: 13 episodes
  • Season 2: 22 episodes
  • Season 3: 18 episodes

Keep in mind, season 1 debuted in March 2012 with only two months before the season finale.

This leaves many fans biting their nails about the fourth season. Could it be the last 15 episodes we see of the Braverman family?

NBC got a ratings boost during the third season finale. It wasn't as high as the previous year's season finale but was the highest ratings Parenthood has received since November 2011.

However, Parenthood fans are die hard. With an all-star cast and family-oriented storylines, viewers won't let the Bravermans go away quietly if NBC decides to pull the plug on the show this time next year.

What do you think about the show's future? Would you like to see Parenthood stay on the air or is it time to say goodbye to the Bravermans?
