‘Parenthood’ series finale: Jason Katims confirms air date, title, and more

It has been a long time coming, but now, it is official: The final season of “Parenthood” is going to be airing on NBC Thursday, January 29.

In a post on Twitter, show creator Jason Katims confirmed that “May God Bless and Keep You Always” is going to be the title for this episode, which Katims specifically wrote for the occasion. This is going to make for some a fantastic and emotional half-hour of television.

The unfortunate thing for this show is just how much the culture has changed for series finales over the course of the past several of years. It has suddenly become more about the ways that you can hate a show rather than the ways that you can love it. The only hope here is that given the diehard fan following that the show has already, people will be more receptive to actually liking the show rather than just being overly negative.

Hopefully, we are going to have a whole lot more when it comes to the show moving forward. Typically, NBC releases episode details a week and a half to two weeks before a new episode airs, so we would say that is when you can expect a whole lot more. Then again, this is under the assumption that NBC decides that they want to share anything at all further when it comes to this particular story. They may choose that due to the delicate nature of the material, they want to keep everything under wraps for as long as they possibly can.
