Now that "Parenthood" has ended its run on NBC, where will people get their sob fix? Look no further than Jason Katims' new series, "The Way," which has been picked up by Hulu.

Katims, who developed the series version of "Parenthood" and served as the showrunner, has created this new drama series about "a family at the center of a controversial faith–based movement struggling with relationships, marriage and power," according to Hulu.

The 10-episode first season will go into production this summer with Katims executive producing and serving as showrunner.

Before "Parenthood," Katims was the showrunner of "Friday Night Lights," yet another drama with a penchant to elicit strong emotions from its audience.

"The Way" joins a steadily growing Hulu production slate that already includes the Stephen King adaptation "11/22/63," the Jason Reitman comedy series "Casual" and another comedy series "Difficult People," produced by Amy Poehler.

No word on when "The Way" will premiere on the streaming service, but there's still plenty of time to stock up on tissues.
