Fourteen episodes of Parenthood's fourth season weren't enough for Ray Romano — the man everybody loves is coming back for a similar stretch and a "major presence" next year. "I hear Romano’s decision to return stems from the great relationship he’d developed with Parenthood developer/executive producer Jason Katims working on the show, something he had enjoyed since joining the cast at the beginning of last season," Deadline reports. Parenthood's fifth season will move to 10 p.m. on NBC's Thursday lineup.
