The arrival of the final season of ‘Parks and Recreation’ is bittersweet: We’ve spent six years with Leslie Knope and her friends (and enemies…and peripheral weirdos) in a sitcom that helped fill the void left behind by Liz Lemon and ‘30 Rock.’ In that six years, ‘Parks and Rec’ hasn’t just been hilarious—its presence alone has become comforting. So while we celebrate the return of one of our favorite shows, we also have to start the process of saying goodbye. At least they’re making sure we laugh all the way to the end.

We’re not quite ready to say goodbye to ‘Parks and Recreation’ in 2015, but our favorite Pawnee characters have moved well ahead to the year “2017" all the same. The seventh and final season will premiere on January 13 with a double-dose of said future, but why wait to check out the first two spoilery synopses of the season?

‘Parks and Recreation’s seventh and final season will have a short victory lap in the manner NBC has chosen to burn off its 13 episodes, but our final days in Pawnee will at least be full of familiar faces. Fresh off the ‘Ant-Man’ set, Paul Rudd will reprise his role as Sweetums magnate Bobby Newport, but what brings the character back to ‘Parks and Recreation’'s final year, you ask?

The future of ‘Parks and Recreation’ looks especially grim, but only by the fact that 2015 will bring us the last 13 episodes ever, rather than the spiffy-looking 2017 the characters seem to be enjoying. Drones drop off our packages, Chris Pratt has his own TV show, and more await in the first trailer for the final season of NBC’s ‘Parks and Recreation!’

We’ve known for some time that ‘Parks and Recreation’ would bring Leslie Knope’s tale to a close with the seventh and final season, and while we at last have a 2015 premiere date, there’s good news and bad.

NBC’s ‘Parks and Recreation’ put some literal and figurative madness into its sixth season finale, tossing a Jon Hamm cameo into the brisk final sequence that saw the Pawnee gang jumping through time to 2017. Now, with ‘Parks’ final bow on the horizon for 2015, NBC confirms that the ‘Mad Men’ star will return in his role as the ever-incompetent Ed.

Beloved NBC sitcom 'Parks and Recreation' is coming to an end after six seasons, and star Amy Poehler isn't taking it so well. Sure, sure, the funny lady is excited about the future for both her and her super-mega-all-star cast, but that doesn't mean she needs to go out on a graceful note. Actually, Poehler is determined to light the place up before she says her final goodbyes.

Did you know that Amy Poehler has a new book coming out later this month? Oh, well Amy Poehler has a new book coming out later this month! We're really excited. 'Yes Please' hits shelves on October 28, and as if we weren't already pumped up enough, we got a peek at the 'Parks and Recreation' star's author photo. It is, as you might imagine, hilarious. But you don't have to imagine it. You can see it for yourselves weeks in advance.

'Friends' At 20: Less Really is More

It’s always bizarre to re-watch the pilot episode of a long-running television series, especially a situation comedy. Both ‘Friends’ and ‘ER’ are celebrating the 20th anniversaries of their debut over the next few days, but watching the ‘ER’ pilot almost feels like watching a movie. The pace of ‘ER’ came first and the characters were established later (we didn’t get to know too much about Noah Wyle’s John Carter, other than that he was new and that he was scared). ‘Friends’ didn’t have this luxury. The first scene of ‘Friends’ takes place in a coffee shop, so we really have no choice other than to meet these people. And the thing is, in this first episode, these people are kind of awful.
