‘Parks and Recreation’ Season 5 Releases Full Trailer, The Perm Must Wait!
The majority of NBC’s Thursday comedy line-up returns this week (minus ‘Community,’ tear), and we’re thrilled to see the long wait for ‘The Office‘ and ‘Parks and Recreation‘ finally come to a close. But if there’s one thing to be cheerful for apart from waffles covered in whipped cream, it’s a comedy that issues a full trailer for it’s upcoming season! That’s right, our best look yet at ‘Parks and Recreation’ season 5 has arrived, so halt your perm session for a moment and watch!
Have you too been too long deprived of ‘Parks and Recreation?’ Are you dying to know what happens when Leslie Knope takes office in her new City Council digs, or what Ben and April get up to in their new Washington D.C. jobs? Have you literally been dying for your favorite ‘Parks and Recreation’ catchphrase to return? Wait no, longer, for a full-length ‘Parks and Recreation’ season 5 teaser has arrived, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly!
In it, you’ll see how Ron Swanson does his best to take over Leslie’s responsibilities during her frequent absences, while Andy enlists Chris Traeger and Tom to help him train to become a Pawnee police officer. Plus, you’ll catch a first revealing look at Leslie’s new nemesis, to be played by ‘Delocated’s Jon Glaser!
Unfortunately, you won’t see any other guest stars, including ‘Breaking Bad‘s Jonathan Banks or Glenn Headly as Ben’s parents, Lucy Lawless as a new love interest for Ron Swanson, as well as guest turns from U.S. Senators Barbara Boxer (California), Olympia Snowe (Maine) and even Arizona senator/former presidential candidate John McCain. It was also recently announced that occasional ‘Parks’ guest-star and current ‘House of Lies’ lead Ben Schwartz would reprise his role as hipster “Jean-Ralphio” for at least one episode.
Check out the new trailer below, and be sure to tune into ‘Parks and Recreation’ season 5 beginning this Thursday September 20!
