The first season of Parenthood focused on the youngest of the Braverman children. There was Max's Asperger's Syndrome, Haddie's first love, Amber's disastrous one night stand, Crosby's surprise son. In its second season, the focus will shift to the parents.
"[Adam and Kristina] are still trying to figure out Max's condition while raising Haddie, a teenager, and also dealing with their own issues, of which there are many and more to come," Monica Potter tells TVGuide.com. "It's a scary thing because the divorce rate of parents that have kids with Asperger's [Syndrome] is very high, so they're working on that first."
"Julia decides she wants a second child, which is a grand idea as soon as she can get her husband on board with it," Christensen says, adding that this season will feature alone time between the couple.
"There's a big miscommunication and she doesn't really realize that they're not on the same page there. She lets her enthusiasm blind her."
The Bravermans' relationship troubles extend to patriarch Zeek (Craig T. Nelson) and Camille (Bonnie Bedelia). She may have allowed him back in the house following his bad business decision and even worse personal indiscretions, but the two will continue to work at their relationship.
The only non-committed sibling, Sarah (Lauren Graham), won't be lonesome for long, thanks to two possible new suitors. "The only single one, having all the fun," Christensen jokes.
Parenthood's new season premieres Tuesday at 10/9c on NBC.
