The future of Parenthood, now featuring a LGBT family member

Mae Whitman thought it could of been her character Amber. Michael Ausiello at TVLine.com thought it could of been Drew. I thought the show could go into some unexplored territory and feature Victor or Jabbar, but it was Haddie who received Parenthood’s first ever LGBT plot line, and surprisingly everything went perfectly. Absent for the majority of the past thirty episodes, her inclusion in the season final was strange, but I’m sure many viewers would of excepted it, as this is something many have wanted for the past five years. My only hope now is that Sarah Ramos, who plays Haddie, will stick around for season six (While her return was nice, it did cut away from scenes with Max and Victor which would of been nice to see). This is again if we get a season six, but I feel her plot line will be nothing more than a ratings stunt, if what Haddie is going through isn’t explored further. And not just what Haddie is going through, but how both parent’s are taking things. Even though Kristina was nothing but supportive when Haddie told her she was dating a women (I think everyone loved how she said that instead of saying “I’m gay”), I can imagine her being the same concerned parent she has always been with this sudden news. While Parenthood has not been pulling the numbers it did during its fourth season, it has a massive fan base, which will be massively disappointed if NBC pulls the plug after sticking with the show for five years, so if NBC really don’t see the show being apart of it’s future, the least they can do is give them a short ten episode season to finish the show off well, and so I can see more of Haddie and her new girlfriend.
