Fans of the NBC sitcom Parks & Recreation could go to the oddball city of Pawnee, Indiana, sometime in the future. The star of the series, Amy Poehler, recently said at the casting reunion at PaleyFest that if show runner Michael Schur becomes available, she would like to see these characters again.
Parks & Rec began as a workplace sitcom focused on a small-town government employee and drew a wealth of political satire in its seven seasons, including an election history that would prove incredibly forward-looking in 201
Comedian Patton Oswalt, who had a regular guest appearance on the show, suggested that the film Parks & Rec might be the perfect opportunity to bring the team back together. However, Michael Schur (who is currently working on Cosmic Comedy (19459003) The Good Place ) said: "I think everyone on this stage would feel that there is a story that can be told." The show went off I do not think we left anything on the table. "
He has one point: The final season of the show ended with protagonist Leslie Knope ( Poehler), who left Pawnee to pursue her dream of a political career in Washington, DC However, Schur added, "I would never say never," while Poehler confirmed that it would only revive if Schur was involved
"I have no idea where I would like to go, we would do what we normally do: blow out the formula, do nothing that works, get us into space!" She joked. "That's why I'm not d he with the ideas … we certainly need our captain. "
Since Parks & Rec ended in 2015, the cast has focused on big things. Aubrey Plaza became an indie favorite, Rashida Jones led police vehicle parody Angie Tribeca and Aziz Ansari created the critically acclaimed Master of None . Elsewhere, Retta was able to perform her acting skills in the Krimidrama Good Girls and Billy Eichner, who was inducted late into the show, now appears regularly with segments of his frenetic Vox pop show . Billy on the street.
And then of course there's Chris Pratt, who played Andy Dwyer's loveable idiot before he was ripped off and took on the real movie star's role, starring in Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World. Perhaps in his next film role, he might reflect his role as a representative of FBI agent Burt Macklin Parks & Rec .
