Viewers bid “Parenthood” a tearful farewell last night (leading the beloved drama to its best demo ratings in three seasons), but you can spend a little extra time with the Braverman clan thanks to three deleted scenes NBC just released from the series finale.
Perhaps the most satisfying clip for longtime fans comes as an extension of a scene in Amber’s (Mae Whitman) apartment, in which her father Seth (John Corbett) pays a surprise visit to meet his grandson, Zeek.
In a second deleted scene, the Braverman siblings share a family dinner with their parents before Sarah’s (Lauren Graham) wedding, and the family takes the opportunity to roast the bride-to-be over her long list of exes.
In the final clip, Hank (Ray Romano) struggles to dress for the big day, sharing a sweet moment with his daughter.
While it’s hard to say goodbye, creator Jason Katims didn’t rule out the possibility of revisiting the Bravermans at some point down the line, telling Variety, “Everyone who is doing the show — our writers, our actors, our directors, our producers — we all love doing the show. Everyone would want to do more. There is no one who is angling to get out of doing this thing. I personally would be interested in seeing what happens a few years down the road. I want to know what happens to these people, these characters. If you asked me three years ago, I would say it’s not going to happen. But now there are so many ways of doing things that it’s possible. I would very much be open to that.”
