It looks like "Parenthood" fans aren't the only ones anxious about the death rumored to be coming up on the show. Speaking to E! News, Craig T. Nelson, who plays Zeek Braverman, revealed that the chatter has also been causing stress among the cast.

"We've had a lot of dialogue about this behind the scenes and there's been some contentiousness," he said. "We don't exactly know what it is but the lead up to whatever it is has been so emotional. It's not really good for you. Health-wise, at our age. At mine, I should say. I don't know. I'm not the best to talk to about it. I don't like it. I don't like it."

Executive producer Jason Katims addressed speculations about an upcoming death when talking to The Hollywood Reporter in September.

"The season is dealing with the potential loss of someone. I wouldn’t say we're saying goodbye to somebody. They're dealing with mortality," he said. "This is something that affects the entire family and it informs what everybody will go through the whole season."
