Parks and Recreation has been renewed early for next season, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
The Amy Poehler-led sitcom, which takes a behind-the-scenes look at small town bureaucracy in an Indiana-area parks department, debuted to an impressive 6.8 million viewers and a 3.0 rating in the 18-to-49 demo in April 2009 before dipping to 4.24 million viewers and a rating of 2.0 for its first season finale in May.
In its second year, the series has found its footing with both fans and critics, enjoying a small ratings uptick and a big increase in positive buzz. The show's most recent new episode brought in 4.37 million viewers and a 2.0 rating on Jan. 21.
The sophomore series - part of NBC's Thursday night comedy block - was created by two of the executive producers behind fellow NBC sitcom The Office, Greg Daniels and Michael Schur.
