Winter TV Spoiler-palooza!
COMING UP NEXT | "Resolution" is on the way for Kristina's cancer story, and while showrunner Jason Katims won't reveal her season-ending prognosis, he does promise much more levity ahead for the character. "Having had my wife go through breast cancer a couple years ago, you realize that life doesn't stop so that you can just go through this," he shares. "You have kids and stuff to deal with, and that's when you come to realize [those things are] a blessing." In Kristina and Adam's case, it will be a funny storyline about teaching Max the importance of hygiene, as well as fighting alongside him in support of his beloved school vending machine. And fret not, Jason Ritter fans, because we have not seen the last of Sarah's estranged fiancé Mark. Nor is Hank out of the picture.

You can also look forward to Ryan trying "to get Amber to trust him" again, as well as Jasmine's now-unemployed mom shacking up with her daughter and son-in-law.

Parenthood | Remember how Season 3 ended, way, way back in February, with Julia and Joel welcoming to their home, no, not Zoes newborn but the 9-year-old son of a freshly incarcerated woman? Yeah, thats likely to shake up their household, and in unanticipated ways.

I think the dramas going to come a bit from having two kids the same age.

Joel has always been a constant, but I would imagine if I had a 9-year-old son that wasnt ready to be my son, thatd be a difficult situation to navigate, Jaeger offers.
