Maura Tierney Drops Out of Parenthood

Well this news is a big bummer — Maura Tierney will no longer be appearing in NBC's upcoming series Parenthood due to her ongoing breast cancer treatment. The show was moved from Fall to midseason when Tierney learned of her illness, but now she's dropping out altogether.

I loved Maura on ER and really enjoyed watching her in the pilot, but of course her health is the most important matter here. Luckily NBC says she's expected to recover and we wish her all the best as the network searches for her replacement.

That is a bummer. She's a very underappreciated actress IMO. I wish her all the best in these unfortunate times- glad she's expected to do fine.

this is such a shame, but she really needs to do what's best for her right? i hope that she's doing well - it makes you worry knowing that other celebs didn't have as long of a break when they went through it, but hopefully she's just trying to be careful and cautious.

Maura Tierney will be very missed. She didnt have a standout career in feature films. But for some reason, I really liked her on the big screen. Wishing her a speedy recovery. And looking forward very much to return. Cheers~ Grantz

I was excited to see her get to play a role where she didn't have to be serious all the time. So sad to hear that she is missing out on this opportunity. I wish her the best and a quick recovery.
