‘The Good Place’ Sets ‘Parks and Rec’ Reunion With Adam Scott
If ever Parks and Recreation had a spiritual successor, NBC’s The Good Place would quite literally be it. Even more, it seems Parks creator Mike Schur will bring a bit of Pawnee upstairs, setting Adam Scott for a recurring role as early as next week.
Per Entertainment Weekly, the erstwhile Ben Wyatt will drop by The Good Place in a mysteriously unspecified role, beginning as early as October 27. The part is said to unfurl over multiple episodes, though no telling if Scott will play another citizen of the Good Place “neighborhood” that Kristen Bell’s Eleanor belongs to, or perhaps a more supernatural figure on par with Ted Danson’s Michael.
For his part, Scott has actually appeared alongside Bell on a number of occasions, including Parks and Recreation, but also Party Down and Veronica Mars.
The Good Place is confirmed to run through its 13-episode order for NBC, likely doing well enough to continue beyond, though we can expect the midseason finale on November 3.
