A sprawling, progressive family unit in Berkeley, Calif. with no LGBT members might seem a little far-fetched. Luckily, the creative team behind NBC's Parenthood seems to have finally figured that out. Five years in.
In the promo for the season finale (and possibly series finale; Parenthood has yet to be renewed for a sixth season), Braverman daughter Haddie (Sarah Ramos) returns home from college. But she's not alone: She's brought home Lauren, a cute more-than-friend she's seen kissing later in the video.
"Tell them when you're ready," Lauren tells Haddie, and though she's talking about her family, we can't help but shout "Yes! We're ready!" We've been begging Parenthood for a gay character for a while -- we even listed it as the top show we couldn't believe didn't have any LGBT representation. But this news is better late than never, and we're excited to see the season wrap up on such a gay-friendly note.
The episode will air next Thursday, April 17, at 10 p.m. EST. Watch the promo below:
