Parks And Recreation Renewed For Seventh And Final Season
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.12.2014



According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC has announced that it will renew Parks and Recreation for a seventh and final season. The series will not return until the midseason, as it's currently not on the fall season schedule. The amount of episodes it will receive hasn't been revealed. Parenthood, meanwhile, has also been renewed for what will be its sixth and final season.

NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said: "We have several of our strongest comedies by some of our best auspices being held for midseason, including the final season of Parks and Recreation."

The series focuses on a parks department in a small town run by a woman with "grand political aspirations". It is the longest-running comedy on the network. It started as a midseason replacement. With the exception of season three, it always debuted in the fall.
The series moved forward three years during it's season six finale on April 24. Showrunner Mike Schur said that this happened because he knew the end was coming.

He said: "I'd say that the finish line is in sight at this point. I don't want to say definitively but we've had a lot of internal discussions about it; we've talked to NBC a lot about it. The idea that we're nearing the end is part of what gave us the courage to do something like jumping ahead in time. We know we don't have to sustain it for five years. It's a move you do when you know that the show is nearing the end of its run."

The series was created by Universal Television and Greg Daniels' Deedle Dee Productions. It stars Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Chris Pratt, Aziz Ansari and Rashida Jones. Jones and Rob Lowe both left the series during season six. The show has had less-than-stellar ratings but has earned critical acclaim. It won the AFI Award for program of the year in 2012 and was nominated as best comedy at the Golden Globes. Poehler won the Golden Globe for best actress and has been nominated an additional two times. She has been nominated four times at the Emmys and the show itself was nominated for best comedy and writing.

Universal Television signed Poehler to a three-year overall deal in January. She co-wrote the comedy pilot Old Soul as part of the deal, which is loosely based on Natasha Lyonne, who will star. Schur, meanwhile, will still have a show on the air when Parks ends, as he also runs Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which will return to FOX for a second season.
