Aubrey Plaza Knows What Shes Going to Take From the Parks and Recreation Set

  When a long-running show is ending, the cast and crew start eyeing what they want from the set. For example, last year's big get was Josh Radnor swiping How I Met Your Mother 's blue French horn. So, what are people going to take from the Parks and Recreation set? When Vulture first asked Aubrey Plaza at the Life of Beth premiere last week, she wasn't sure. But after a pause, "Definitely my nameplate that says, 'April Ludgate, assistant to Ron Swanson' on my desk." She added, "That's pretty special, so I'll probably take that."

NBC to End ‘Parks and Recreation’ With Season 7

It’s the end for the fictional town of Pawnee. After the seventh season, NBC will the plug on the Amy Poehler comedy “Parks and Recreation.”

Upcoming Seasons of PARKS AND RECREATION and PARENTHOOD Will Be the Last

Though neither come as huge surprises, NBC has confirmed that  Parks and Recreation  and  Parenthood  will air their final seasons during the upcoming 2014-15 slate.  Though its ratings haven’t been astronomical,  Parks and Rec  has maintained a consistent fanbase over its past few seasons in addition to staying creatively at the top of its game.  Given the developments at the end of season six, it sure felt like the producers were setting up an endgame for Leslie Knope ( Amy Poehler ), and as an avid fan of the series, I think it’s smart to bring it to an end with a seventh and final season (which will bow midseason).  The uniquely non-cynical comedy has a knack for mixing hilarious character-driven humor with surprising emotional beats, and I’m eager to see how the story of this goofy gang of Pawnee inhabitants comes to an end.
