‘Parks and Recreation’ Season 6: NBC Renews for Additional Season
Wonderful, if unsurprising news amid the flurry of NBC developments today, as the peacock network has officially issued a sixth season order to its most consistently well-reviewed comedy ‘Parks and Recreation.’ NBC’s troubled 2012 lineup all but assured that the Amy Poehler-starring comedy would have a place on the fall schedule, but will anything be different about ‘Parks and Recreation’ season 6? Get the inside scoop inside!
We’re still waiting for news of ‘Community‘s fate, but NBC has made its comedy fans very happy today granting an official sixth season order to long-running favorite ‘Parks and Recreation.’ No precise word yet on the size of the episode order, but season 5 finale “Are You Better Off?” certainly opened a number of doors for the series to continue onward.
Show-runner Mike Schur (whose FOX sitcom ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘ with Andy Samberg also earned a pickup) previously said of renewal chances “I’ve been cautiously optimistic for five straight years, that’s not going to change. I fully believe that we will be back next year, but until they actually make that phone call, I never like to say it’s a sure thing.”
Glorious news, no? We’ll bring you the latest on NBC’s announcements, but in the meantime eat some celebratory waffles for ‘Parks and Recreation’ season 6!
Notes:- one does not “whittle” a canoe.- one propels a Canoe with a paddle, not an oar.- Parks and Rec has been picked up for Season 6.
