Dismayed though we are that 'Parks and Recreation' will come to a close with the impending seventh season, NBC looks to be giving the revered comedy the send-off it deserves. To wit, past series stars Megan Mullally and Natalie Morales have been confirmed to return for important final season arcs, while the full season 6 gag reel has made its way online as well.
Parks and Recreation
'Guardians of the Galaxy' star Chris Pratt may be showing off his body more than, uh, usual in this week's new Marvel release (evidence below, and that's just a small sample), but just because the actor got in shape for the part doesn't mean it's the first time he's used his body for a role. Oh, no! Turns out, Pratt broke away from the bonds of clothing before, particularly on NBC's 'Parks and Recreation.'
Earlier today we saw NBC delivering the first full trailer for its upcoming 'Constantine' adaptation, but the network had plenty more to give in advance of the Upfront presentation tomorrow. Not only has NBC set the basic structure of its fall lineup, breaking up its Thursday comedy lineup and keeping 'Parks and Recreation' on the bench for the moment, but the network has also released full trailers for its other offerings, including Katherine Heigl CIA drama 'State of Affairs,' and 'HIMYM' alum Cristin Milioti's 'A to Z.'
It seemed sort of inevitable given the way things have been heading with 'Parks in Recreation' over the last couple of seasons, and with chances of renewal always uncertain, we knew that the season 6 finale could've easily served as a series finale. But now it's official: Leslie Knope and the gang will say farewell as 'Parks and Rec' makes season 7 its last on their own terms.
Of all the series we'd never have expected to shake things up with a time jump, NBC's 'Parks and Recreation' went lightyears ahead in "Moving Up" to its sixth season finale last night. And while NBC hasn't confirmed the seventh season as its last, producer Mike Schur got on the horn to discuss the show's surprising fast-forward, including one very 'Mad' man cameo, and what it means for the future Pawnee of 2017.
'Parks and Recreation' brings season 6 to a close tonight with the two-part finale episode, in which Leslie, Ben and Andy head to San Francisco for the National Parks conference, Tom's restaurant opens, and Ron has yet another terrifying run-in with Tammy 2 (Megan Mullally). It's also about time for that big unity concert, right?
Earlier today we saw the 'Workaholics' crew doing a bit of cross-promotion with 'Neighbors' stars Zac Efron and Seth Rogen, but it seems one of the boys will branch out even further. Following tonight's latest, 'Parks and Recreation' has added 'Workaholics'' Blake Anderson for a role in the season 6 finale, but as whom, you ask?
On tonight's all-new episode of 'Parks and Recreation,' Tom heads to a vineyard with the gang to find a Sommelier for his restaurant, and Ben receives some bad news from his parents and goes on a bender with Ron. Meanwhile, Leslie and Andy scramble to secure a headliner for the Unity concert while Leslie deals with some surprising news.
