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.

Parks and Recreation’s Next Season Will ‘Fairly Likely’ Be Its Last

  Last night's Parks & Rec , guys, right? What? Is? Up? Luckily, Entertainment Weekly has a wonderful interview with showrunner Mike Schur where he sorts everything out. Schur says that after a meeting with NBC where they "were given really every assurance" that they'd get another season, they decided that instead of leaving things open-ended, they wanted to "throw a crazy wrench into the works." The goal was to figure out a way for Leslie to take the job and stay in Pawnee. But why jump three years? "We talked about: Is it five years? Is it 10 years?" Schur explains. "It seemed like enough time to be for really radical change without everybody having gray hair." (Fun side note about future hair: It was Amy Poehler's idea that Leslie should have bangs!)  Read More...
