The 11th-hour pickup comes after the network — looking to trim costs on the very expensive series — closed new deals with the principal cast that will have them appearing in 11 of the 13 episodes.

Per NBC’s just-released fall schedule, Parenthood is staying put on Thursday at 10/9c. (Click here for NBC’s complete fall sked).
