Fall TV Preview

Parenthood First Look: How Will the Bravermans Ring in Their Final Season?

Parenthood Season 6 Premiere

And now for something completely different: The first photos of Parenthood‘s final season don’t make us want to cry.

NBC has released a handful of snapshots from the dramedy’s Season 6 premiere (Sept. 25, 10/9c) and while the Braverman clan is showing off a range of emotions, the waterworks haven’t kicked in — yet.

Among the highlights: Kristina sharing a meaningful moment with Max, lovebirds Drew and Natalie doing a little remodeling — at Zeke and Camille’s new place, perhaps? — and Hank looking a bit apprehensive. (After all, some things never change.)

There are still plenty of faces missing from the photos, though, including estranged couple Joel and Julia, Sarah and (now-pregnant!) Amber. But considering the premiere is titled “Vegas,” perhaps we already know where the rest of the family has gone?

Regardless, we can be sure of one thing: The final season is going to be a doozy for the Bravermans (and us), as the last 13 episodes will introduce a challenge like the family hasn’t encountered before. “We’ve never told a story about losing someone in the family, and that is a very difficult story for us to tell. But it’s one that I feel is a reality,” creator Jason Katims previously told TVLine.
