5* has pulled first run episodes of drama series Parenthood from the schedule after airing only five episodes of the show’s second season, TVWise has confirmed. The series was being broadcast on Thursday nights at 10pm. In place of Parenthood, 5* will now air repeat episodes of The Mentalist.
News of this first reached us yesterday and we have spent the past 24 hours trying to confirm the situation with Channel 5. I’m now being told that the ratings for Parenthood in its 10pm time-slot were not as good as the channel had expected and it is for that reason that they have pulled the series. That said, I’m also told that the series will return to finish airing its second season at some point later this year.
So UK Parenthood fans take note: if/when the series re-appears on 5*’s schedule make sure you tune in or the series may go the same way as Breaking Bad did on 5USA. TVWise will bring you more if/when 5* puts the series back on its schedule.
